The Ohio State Buckeyes will begin the 2014 college football regular season in one week exactly, however as we painfully found out this week, they will be without starting quarterback Braxton Miller for the entire season, after he suffered a shoulder injury in practice on Monday.
According to a report from the Columbus Dispatch, Miller has a surgery to repair the issue in the shoulder tentatively set for Tuesday.
Ohio State’s Braxton Miller is tentatively scheduled to undergo shoulder surgery on Tuesday, a source close to the quarterback told The Dispatch yesterday.
The surgery is to repair a torn labrum. Like the injury Miller suffered in the Orange Bowl, the tear is a partial one, not a complete tear, the source said.
This will be the first step in eventually getting Miller back on the field, and that will be in a Buckeyes uniform in 2015. After he suffered the injury, he had the choice of either rehabbing and entering the NFL Draft next May, or taking a medical redshirt and coming back to Columbus in 2015.
Well a few days after the injury occurred, Miller announced that he would indeed be coming back in 2015 rather than heading off to the NFL, much to the delight of Buckeyes fans everywhere.
