Jones’ mother, Florence, told The Toledo Blade on Wednesday night that her son went to the emergency room for a headache.

Ohio State released a statement Thursday saying Jones was examined at the OSU Wexner Medical Center, but did not say for what.

Ohio State says Jones “was released from the center following the examination and he is doing fine today.”

Jones is competing with J.T. Barrett to be the top-ranked Buckeyes’ starter when they open the season Monday night at Virginia Tech.

Jones took over as Ohio State’s starter last year after J.T. Barrett broke his ankle in the regular-season finale against Michigan. Jones helped the Buckeyes beat Wisconsin in the Big Ten title game and Alabama and Oregon in the College Football Playoff to win the national title.
