Ohio State officials have confirmed that quarterback Braxton Miller will miss the 2014 season after re-injuring his throwing shoulder. The two-time Big Ten player of the year, left practice in pain Monday after making a throw.
The university says Miller will require another surgery. He partially tore the labrum in his right shoulder in a loss to Clemson at the Orange Bowl. After surgery in the off-season, Miller did not face contact in spring practice and had some limited workouts this month due to soreness. Miller says he's on track to graduate in December, wants to attend graduate school and plans to return to the team next year. Redshirt freshman J.T. Barrett will likely be the starter in the August 30th opener against Navy in Baltimore.
