According to the Columbus Dispatch, Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller reinjured his surgically shoulder during practice on Monday. Though Ohio State has been mum on the extent of Miller’s injury, initial reports don’t sound too good.
Ohio State senior quarterback Braxton Miller reinjured his right (throwing) shoulder in practice yesterday, sources told The Dispatch, an injury that could cause him to miss the upcoming season and put a new spin on it for the Buckeyes, the fifth-ranked team in the Associated Press preseason poll.
Sources said last night that a quick return for Miller is not likely. Miller could be facing another surgical procedure, though that might not be decided for a couple of days.
More details have emerged this morning on how Miller sustained the injury and the extent of the injury.
Here’s Jeremy Fowler of CBS Sports on how Miller was injured:
Braxton was throwing a basic out route in a non-contact drill, grabbed his arm/shoulder area, said he felt something, they took him off

And here’s Patrick Maks of Eleven Warriors on the extent of Miller’s injury:
2. Source: Miller appeared to dislocate his throwing shoulder. Right elbow to left hip, like a pitcher. He laid on the field for 5+ minutes.
