Charge against Ohio State's Bradley Roby dismissed
The Ohio State cornerback is suspended for the first game of the season following his being charged for disorderly conduct.
The bad news for Ohio State cornerback Bradley Roby is that he's still suspended for Ohio State's season opener against Buffalo. The good news for Roby is that the misdemeanor disorderly conduct charge against him was conditionally dismissed on Wednesday.
Roby will have to complete a diversion program that just requires him to avoid legal trouble until August 16, 2014.
Roby had been charged with misdemeanor battery after he was accused of hitting a security guard outside a bar in Bloomington, Indiana in July. The original charge was reduced to misdemeanor disorderly conduct last week.
Of course, if you're an Ohio State fan hoping this latest news will result in Roby's suspension being dismissed as well, I wouldn't hold my breath if I were you. There were never any charges filed against Ohio State running back Carlos Hyde following his own incident at a bar, but that didn't stop Urban Meyer from suspending him for three games.
So odds are Roby will still miss the game against Buffalo, though I have a feeling Ohio State will manage just fine without him.
