Ohio State coach Jim Tressel confident Terrelle Pryor will be fine

Ohio State coach Jim Tressel said Tuesday he believes quarterback Terrelle Pryor will be "fine" as the team prepares for Saturday's game against Indiana. Pryor injured his left quadriceps during the third quarter of last week's game against Illinois.

He missed a series, but returned later in the period and helped the second-ranked Buckeyes to a 24-13 victory.

"I would expect every day he'll get closer to 100 percent," said Tressel at his weekly news conference. "I don't know who's 100 percent after five games … but I think he'll be fine."

Pryor rushed for 102 yards on 10 carries before exiting the game against the Illini, but carried just one more time for 2 yards after returning to the field. •Michigan State coach Mark Dantonio is planning to be back against Michigan on Saturday. Dantonio is recovering from a mild heart attack and blood clot in his leg. … Florida offensive coordinator Steve Addazio said quarterback John Brantley was "doing great" despite a rib injury.
