Urban Meyer: Health issue is ‘something we have to monitor’
Urban Meyer went down to the ground during Ohio State’s win over Indiana on Saturday with what he later described as a headache, but the Buckeyes coach does not sound overly concerned about the health issue.
While speaking with reporters on Monday, Meyer referenced the surgery he had to remove fluid from a cyst on his brain back in 2014. He indicated that the headache he experienced on Saturday was related to that.
“I’ve been dealing with that cyst for many years,” Meyer said, via Dave Biddle of 247Sports.com. “We had surgery several years ago. When it does take place, they give me some medicine. I feel fine now. It’s something we have to monitor.”
Meyer was asked if he thought about getting surgery again, but he said he plans to “just get by with what we’re doing” for the time being.
Between the 2014 procedure and the chest pains he experienced before he left Florida in 2010, Meyer has a history of health-related problems. He has been publicly accused of exaggerating the issues to get what he wants in his career, which is something his family has passionately defended him over.
