A look at Ohio State's day of 2014 fall camp practice, including updates from kickers, running backs, linemen, and Braxton Miller

Ohio State just finished their second practice with media availability afterwards, and their third of Fall Camp. The Big Ten Network and multiple beat writers were on hand to give you the latest on how they looked, and how multiple position group battles were unfolding, including at running back and offensive line.

Dave Revsine of the Big Ten Network's initial reaction to the Buckeyes isn't unexpected, but still probably a positive sign for the team.

Your entire first team OL today? The most intriguing position battles at camp are probably in this group:

Not on that list? Alabama transfer Chad Lindsay. But hey, it's still really early. But if you want to go ahead and read into that a little, you can.

So, sounds more like a spring training situation then, rather than anything to be concerned over.

And now, in "it's probably too early to freak out but go ahead and freak out a little bit" news:

But don't worry, there is some good news out of the secondary to help offset that:

Luke Fickell also continues the praise for the linebacker unit, after Meyer did so at Big Ten Media days:

And for whatever concerns you may have about Ohio State's secondary this year, remember, you still have this:
