Ohio State announced Monday night that Urban Meyer underwent a medical procedure over the weekend to help the Buckeyes head coach deal with headaches.

According to a school release, Meyer underwent surgery to remove fluid from a cyst on his brain. The cyst was first discovered in 1998 when Meyer was an assistant at Notre Dame, but apparently a recent issue with headaches led to the procedure. 

Meyer is not expected to miss any practice and will meet with the media after Ohio State's first spring workout on Tuesday.

The Buckeyes will conclude spring practice with the annual spring game on April 12 in Ohio Stadium.
