Ohio State rusher Carlos Hyde and cornerback Bradley Roby facing legal problems

COLUMBUS, Ohio - A published report says Ohio State coach Urban Meyer has kicked starting tailback Carlos Hyde off the team after an alleged assault against a female in Columbus.

In a separate incident, first-team cornerback Bradley Roby is being investigated over another assault in Indiana.

Ohio State officials did not immediately return calls seeking comment.

The Columbus Dispatch is reporting that Hyde was named as a person of interest in a weekend assault against a female in a downtown Columbus bar. The newspaper cites sources saying Hyde was dismissed from the team over the incident early Saturday.

Hyde, a 6-foot, 242-pound senior from Naples, Fla., rushed for 970 yards on 185 carries last season and was the unbeaten Buckeyes' leading scorer with 17 touchdowns and 102 points.

Court records in Monroe County, Ind., indicate Roby was arrested early Sunday morning in Bloomington, Ind., and is facing preliminary charges of misdemeanor battery resulting in bodily injury. He posted bond.

Roby, a 5-11, 192-pound redshirt junior from Suwanee, Ga., was Ohio State's third-leading tackler last year. He had two interceptions, one for a touchdown, to go with two tackles for minus yardage, one sack, one fumble recovery and one blocked kick.  

He had considered jumping into the NFL draft after Ohio State's 12-0 season but decided to return to the team.
