Tyler Moeller's Family Releases Statement

Amy Moeller, mother of Ohio State linebacker Tyler Moeller, released a statement today through the university about the details of the incident that cause Moeller's season ending head injury.

On behalf of the Moeller family, I would like to express our deepest gratitude for the outpouring of concern, well wishes and prayers that Tyler and our family have received over the past few weeks.

We were on a family vacation in Florida, celebrating his grandparents' 50th wedding anniversary following the end of the OSU summer quarter. On the first evening of vacation, Tyler was with several family members, including his uncle at a popular restaurant/bar; it was there that Tyler was assaulted. He never saw it coming and did nothing to provoke it, which is substantiated by neutral parties. The subject was immediately arrested and the case is currently in the hands of the State Attorney's Office.

Tyler received immediate medical attention for a head injury suffered as the result of the assault, was admitted in to the emergency room and spent several days in a Florida ICU unit. We're very appreciative of the care that we received there.

Once back in Columbus and after additional medical treatment the decision to admit Moeller to the OSU Medicl Center was made. After surgery, Moeller was released on Monday and is now at his home in Cincinnati recovering.

We are most happy to report that Tyler is doing extremely well and chomping at the bit to get going again. We fully expect him to be on the field again - we are just not sure of the time frame. Thank you all! GO BUCKS!!

The junior linebacker was expected to start for the Buckeyes this season, but now will most likely miss the entire season.
