Report: OSU QB Miller reinjures shoulder

Report: OSU QB Miller reinjures shoulder

Here's a bombshell that could change the landscape of college football in 2014.

The Columbus Dispatch is reporting that Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller reinjured his right shoulder during practice Monday, and that the injury puts Miller's entire 2014 season "in jeopardy."

Ohio State has not confirmed the report.

If it turns out to be true, though, this is obviously huge news, and a devastating blow to the Buckeyes. It seems like at a minimum Miller would miss the beginning of the season, and if he's out for the entire year, Ohio State goes from a preseason favorite in the Big Ten to, well, nobody really knows.

That's just the kind of impact player Braxton Miller is, as he's considered by just about anyone you ask a candidate for the Heisman Trophy this season.

Miller had surgery on his shoulder in February after hurting it in Ohio State's Orange Bowl loss to Clemson. If Miller misses time -- for whatever length of time -- he'd likely be replaced by redshirt freshman J.T. Barrett, who is second on the Ohio State depth chart.
