Buckeyes Miller done for season
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio State says quarterback Braxton Miller will miss the 2014 season after reinjuring his throwing shoulder. The school says he will require surgery.
The two-time Big Ten Player of the Year left practice in pain Monday after making a throw.
The senior and three-year starter partially tore the labrum in his right shoulder in a loss to Clemson at the Orange Bowl. He had surgery, did not face contact in spring practice and was held out of several practices this month due to soreness.
Redshirt freshman J.T. Barrett is Miller’s top backup and will likely be the starter in the Aug. 30 opener against Navy in Baltimore.
