Braxton Miller reinjures shoulder, could be out for season according to Dispatch

Braxton Miller

Tim May of the Columbus Dispatch is reporting on Monday night that Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller hurt his throwing shoulder in practice and could be done for the season.

Miller had shoulder surgery after the season and missed all of spring practice and was still not taking every snap with the starters this summer.

There is your very faint silver lining. Really faint. Like nearly transparent.

J.T. Barrett would be your likely starter when the season opens against Navy on August 30. Barrett is a red-shirt freshman who leaped over Cardale Jones on the depth chart this summer.

Barrett has not taken a snap in a regular season game. Cardale Jones has thrown three passes, with one completion.

Carlos Hyde (NFL) and Braxton Miller (injured) accounted for 2,589 rushing yards and 17 rushing touchdowns. Miller also threw for 2,094 yards and 24 touchdowns. Kenny Guiton (graduated) accounted for another 19 touchdowns last season for the Buckeyes.
