Sources Say Braxton Miller Re-Injures Shoulder
Sources tell 10TV that the Ohio State University's starting quarterback Braxton Miller re-injured his throwing shoulder during practice Monday.
This is the same shoulder he had surgery on following the end of last season. Sources tell 10TV the extent of the injury won't be known for a few days, but Tim May of the Columbus Dispatch is reporting the injury puts his playing status with the team in jeopardy for the rest of the year.
Before practice Monday, Miller, a senior, spoke with the media and said he was still recovering from the initial surgery, but was confident he would be fine for the season. He did mention having a little soreness, but besides that, he was ready to go.
If Miller is out, this means the starting job goes to back-up quarterback J.T. Barrett. Barrett is a red shirt freshman out of Texas.
Over the weekend, Coach Urban Meyer said Barrett had passed Cardale Jones to take over the number two spot.
Quarterback coach Tom Herman also said the offense moves better with Barrett at quarterback.
10TV reached out to the University for comment, but so far they've declined.
The Buckeyes open the season on August 30th when they travel to Baltimore to take on Navy.
