Ohio State opens spring football Tuesday and Coach Urban Meyer will be on the field, despite undergoing what an OSU press release calls a "short medical procedure" over the weekend.

According to the release, Meyer had been experiencing headaches and had a small fluid collection related to a congenital arachnoid cyst removed.

The Buckeyes spring practice will run through the annual Spring Game in Ohio Stadium April 12.

Here is the full text of Ohio State's release on the matter:

Ohio State coach Urban Meyer had a short medical procedure at the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center this weekend to remove a small fluid collection related to a congenital arachnoid cyst. The cyst was first found in 1998 when he was a coach at the University of Notre Dame. The procedure was done this weekend to alleviate intermittent headaches Meyer had been experiencing the past few weeks. He is doing well and will be on the field Tuesday when Ohio State opens its spring drills.
