Report: Ohio State QB Braxton Miller reinjures shoulder, could be out for season

August 19, 2014 - 6:56 am

Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller reinjured his right shoulder in practice Monday and could miss the upcoming season, according to a report by The Columbus Dispatch. The potential loss of Miller would be a crushing one for the No. 5 Buckeyes. The senior is a two-time Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year and was considered a top candidate for the Heisman Trophy this season. Miller missed spring practice after receiving "minor, outpatient surgery" on his throwing shoulder. He had been held out of a scrimmage and a few practices through August training camp due to some soreness in the shoulder, but said he felt healthy. If Miller can't go, redshirt freshman J.T. Barrett would likely get the start in the season opener Aug. 30 against Navy.
