Ohio State suspends Carlos Hyde

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBUS, OH (FOX19) - Ohio State has suspended its top running back as it investigates what it calls a criminal investigation.

Carlos Hyde, on this season's Maxwell Award watch list for college football's most outstanding player, has been suspended from all team activities pending outcome of student code of conduct and criminal investigations, according to a release from Ohio State.

"I have a clear set of core values in place that members of this football team are constantly reminded of and expected to honor," Meyer said in a statement.  "There are also expectations in regards to behavior.  I expect our players to conduct themselves responsible and appropriately and they will be held accountable for their actions."

A published report from the Columbus Dispatch on Monday reported Ohio State coach Urban Meyer had kicked top rusher Carlos Hyde off the team after an alleged assault against a female in Columbus.

Hyde rushed for 970 yards in the 2012 season and scored 16 touchdowns.

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

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.

Ohio State announced Roby will not be attending the Big Ten media days this week.
