Report: Ohio State QB Braxton Miller injures shoulder
Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller re-injured his shoulder in practice Monday afternoon, leaving his ability to play during the 2014 season in jeopardy, the Columbus Dispatch's Tim May reported Monday. The school did not immediately confirm the injury.
Stunning news for the No.5 Buckeyes, but likely means J.T. Barrett will be the season opening starter.— Tim May (@TIM_MAYsports) August 19, 2014
Miller injured his throwing shoulder this past January in his team's loss in the Orange Bowl to Clemson.
Redshirt freshman J.T. Barrett is believed to be the closest quarterback behind Miller on the depth chart.
In his three-year career at Ohio State, Miller has thrown for 5,292 yards and rushed for another 3,054. He has either passed or rushed for 84 touchdowns as a Buckeye.
