[January 09, 2009]  COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Ohio State tailback Chris "Beanie" Wells is giving up his final year of eligibility to enter the NFL draft.

DonutsWells issued a statement Thursday saying the move is in the best interest of his family.

Wells fought nagging injuries much of his career at Ohio State. After missing three full games this past season, he returned to rush for 1,197 yards.

But he saw limited action in the second half of Monday's Fiesta Bowl due to symptoms of a concussion. He finished with 106 yards on 16 carries.

In three seasons at Ohio State, Wells ran for 3,382 yards, fourth best in school history.
