According to a press release issued by Ohio State head football coach Urban Meyer Monday afternoon, the Buckeyes have suspended senior running back Carlos Hyde indefinitely.

The Columbus Dispatch had reported earlier Monday that Hyde had been dismissed from the team, citing unnamed sources. However, Meyer says that Hyde is only banned from all football activities while the school awaits the outcome of a criminal investigation as well as a code of conduct investigation concerning the tailback.

According the the Dispatch, Hyde has been named a person of interest in the investigation of an assault against a woman at a downtown Columbus bar. The police report was filed on Saturday, but Hyde has not been arrested or charged with a crime as of yet.

The bruising back led Ohio State with 17 total touchdowns last season, rushing for 16 scores, ranking second in the Big Ten. He is considered by many to be one of the top players at his position in college football this year.

In addition to Hydes troubles off the field, First Team All-American cornerback Bradley Roby was also involved in an incident over the weekend.  

According to a police report, Roby refused to leave a bar after a disturbance and had to be detained by bouncers before police took him into custody in Monroe County, Indiana on Sunday. Roby is facing preliminary charges of battery resulting in bodily injury.

The star junior defensive back is widely projected to be a top draft pick in next year's NFL Draft, after breaking up 17 passes and collecting 2 int's last season. He is expected to anchor a strong Ohio State secondary, but will be kept out of Big Ten media day this week and may face additional discipline, according to Meyer.
