Michigan State vs. Ohio State: William Gholston returns to game after having wind knocked out of him

Michigan State Spartans defensive end William Gholston left Saturday's game against the Ohio State Buckeyes in the second quarter after he and several teammates converged to tackle Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller.

Gholston was briefly motionless on the field, briefly laying on top of Miller as trainers worked on him. Gholston eventually made it back to his feet and walked off the field on his own power.

On the ABC television coverage, it was reported that Gholston wasn't knocked unconscious, just that he had the wind knocked out of him.

Gillian Van Stratt of SpartanMag.com reported that Gholston passed tests given by trainers on the sideline:

Gholston returned on Michigan State's next defensive series. The Spartans trail Ohio State 7-3 in the second quarter. Both teams scored on their opening drives, with the defenses dominating thereafter.
