There were notable injury developments that transpired this past weekend in the college football world.

Perhaps the most notable was Ohio St. Buckeyes quarterback Braxton Miller being carted off the field and taken to a local hospital after suffering a head and neck injury. Miller has since been discharged after passing a series of head, neck and shoulder tests and will be questionable for next week's game. If he is unable to play, Kenny Guiton will likely be Ohio State's starter at quarterback.

Sean Mannion did not play yet again for Oregon State on Saturday as he continued recovering from knee surgery. According to USA Today's injury report, Mannion could return next week against the Washington Huskies. The Beavers are currently ranked No. 7 in the latest BCS standings.

As the Oregon Ducks won big over Arizona State on Thursday night, they lost three important players. Offensive lineman Nick Cody, safety Troy Hill and tight end Colt Lyerla were all bothered by various injuries and are questionable for next weekend's Pac-12 matchup with Colorado.

In a bit of good news for Alabama, quarterback AJ McCarron did not appear to show any lingering effects from a knee injury he was reportedly bothered by in practice the past week.
