OSU linebacker Tyler Moeller’s injury was due to a suckerpunch given to him by a Florida man, Rivals Radio reported this morning.
Details are still being revealed, but according to the report, Moeller was on vacation with his parents in Florida when another man overheard the linebacker identify himself as an Ohio State football player. The man allegedly approached Moeller and struck him in the head without warning.
Moeller apparently shook off the effects and resumed his vacation, but over the ensuing days became increasingly ill. According to Rivals Radio, upon returning to Columbus he began having seizures and was admitted to OSU Medical Center, where he underwent surgery to relieve brain swelling.
More details (and, hopefully, clarifications) to follow…
