COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio State coach Urban Meyer had a short medical procedure over the weekend.

In a statement released Monday night, a team spokesman said the surgery was to remove fluid from a cyst on Meyer's brain. The cyst was originally discovered in 1998 when Meyer was an assistant at Notre Dame.

The operation was to alleviate headaches that Meyer had been experiencing the past few weeks.

The statement said the coach was doing well and would be on the field when Ohio State begins spring drills on Tuesday.
