COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) Cardale Jones realizes many people weren't even aware he was still playing football.

"If people forgot, I don't have a problem with that," Ohio State's latest replacement quarterback said Thursday. "My teammates and my coaches knew that I was capable when ready. So it was good I got to show everyone."
