Ohio State football coach Urban Meyer took a knee during the Buckeyes’ win over Indiana on Saturday, Oct. 6 and needed to receive medical attention. Meyer was in severe pain and addressed his medical scare during his Monday press conference.

Meyer said that he was dealing with a “headache” before admitting it was another cyst related issue. Meyer currently underwent surgery because of the cyst, but it does not appear that this issue will require the same.

“I’ve been dealing with that cyst for many years,” Meyer said, via ASAP Sports. “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. Just get by with what we’re doing.”

These are not the first health-related issues for Meyer, either.

Back in 2010, Meyer briefly retired as head coach of the Florida Gators. He worked for one year as an ESPN analyst, before joining Ohio State ahead of the 2012 campaign. Those health issues were described as a “heart issue” and “severe acid reflux.”

Meyer should be able to return to the sidelines for Ohio State’s game on┬áSaturday, Sept. 13 against Minnesota. Kickoff between the No. 3 Buckeyes and Golden Gophers is set for 12:00 p.m. ET on FOX Sports 1.
