Report: Ohio State QB Braxton Miller could miss 2014 with injury

Record-Courier staff report

A report that surfaced late on Monday night did not bode well for the Ohio State football team.

The Columbus Dispatch was the first to report that starting quarterback, and Heisman Trophy hopeful, Braxton Miller re-injured his right shoulder on Monday.

According to the reports, the injury could seriously jeopardize the entire 2014 season for Miller.

A spokesperson for Ohio State could not be reached to confirm the injury and head coach Urban Meyer could not be reached for comment.

Miller originally injured the shoulder during the Buckeyes' Orange Bowl game against Clemson, leading to off-season surgery.

Reports throughout early practices for the Buckeyes indicated that Miller was coming along slowly in his rehab.

Miller threw for 2,094 yards and 24 touchdowns last season, while running for over 1,000 yards and 12 scores on the ground.

Ohio State's backup quarterback is redshirt freshman J.T. Barrett, who had moved ahead of sophomore Cardale Jones.
