Ohio State QB Miller reinjures shoulder

Tuesday, August 19, 2014 - Updated: 9:20 AM

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- With just over two weeks remaining before its season opener, it appears No. 5 Ohio State has already sustained a devastating loss.

Two-time Big Ten offensive player of the year, quarterback Braxton Miller, considered among the top contenders for the Heisman Trophy, reportedly reinjured his throwing shoulder in practice on Monday.

Ohio State officials declined to confirm Miller was hurt or speak to the severity of the injury, first reported by The Columbus Dispatch.

Miller, a senior, had missed all of spring practice after what was termed "minor, outpatient surgery" on his right shoulder. When workouts resumed in August, he had been held out of a scrimmage and a few practices after experiencing some soreness in the shoulder. But he proclaimed last week and again on Monday that he was healthy and ready to go.

Head coach Urban Meyer said last week that the soreness was an expected result of Miller's throwing in practice.

"I anticipated this," Meyer said. "I've dealt with guys with arm issues before, and we're being very cautious. He could have practiced (in one of the workouts in which he didn't play) but we're in it for the long haul. So he's right on schedule."
