After Ohio State lost to Michigan State two weeks back, Buckeyes star running back Ezekiel Elliott revealed that earlier in the week, he'd been in the hospital for an infection. Saturday, Elliott's father, Stacy, shared two photos of his son in the facility. Elliott claims that it was all kept a secret. He also claims that it was a "miracle" that Elliott could stand on game day.
The timing here is certainly odd. But the photos do eliminate any doubt that Zeke wasn't under the weather.

Elliott was only given 12 carries against the Spartans, and had his lowest output (33 yards) of the year. He rebounded against Michigan the following week, rushing for 214 yards in a big victory over the Wolverines.
