Ohio State backup quarterback Jack Miller was suspended from the team Friday after he was charged with operating a vehicle while impaired.

He was arrested by Ohio State Highway Patrol officers and released from custody with a summons to appear in court at a later date.

The school issued a statement confirming his arrest and suspension.

Miller, a redshirt freshman, wound up as the third string quarterback after competition in camp. C.J. Stroud, also a redshirt freshman, is entrenched as the starter with freshman Kyle McCord as his backup.

A four-star recruit in the Class of 2020, Miller has played in four games this season, completing 7 of 14 passes for 101 yards.

Quinn Ewers, who reclassified to the Class of 2021 and was its No. 1 recruit, is the other quarterback on scholarship for the Buckeyes.

Ohio State (7-1), No. 5 in the College Football Playoff rankings, will play at Nebraska (3-6) on Saturday.
