Ohio State starting running back Carlos Hyde was dismissed from the team stemming from an incident at a Columbus bar, according to the Columbus Dispatch, while starting defensive back Bradley Roby, a Peachtree Ridge grad, may face suspension from a separate incident.

The Dispatch reported Monday that Hyde was named a person of interest in an assault against a woman. However, no charges have been filed.

Roby, a redshirt junior and top NFL prospect, was arrested Sunday morning in a separate incident. He was charged with battery resulting in bodily injury at a Bloomington, Ind., bar. According to a police report, he was asked to leave a bar after a disturbance, refused, and was subdued by bouncers at the bar before being taken into custody.

Roby was scheduled to appear at Big Ten Media Days this week in Chicago, but now faces a possible suspension after an investigation of the arrest is completed.

Hyde rushed for 970 yards last season with a team-high 16 rushing touchdowns.

Roby was named to the All-Big Ten first team last year and a Thorpe Award semifinalist, which is given to the nation's top defensive back.
