UPDATE: Miller dislocated his shoulder.
According to Tim May of the Columbus Dispatch, Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller re-injured his throwing (right) shoulder Monday during practice.
The following is an excerpt from May's report:
Ohio State senior quarterback Braxton Miller, considered by several polls to be among the preseason leaders to make a run at the Heisman Trophy, reinjured his right shoulder in practice this afternoon, sources told The Dispatch. The injury puts in jeopardy his playing status for the coming season.
An OSU spokesman would not confirm the news, and coach Urban Meyer could not be reached for comment.
As a junior in 2013, Miller threw for 2,094 yards, 24 touchdowns and seven picks; he added 1,068 yards (171 attempts) and 12 scores on the ground.
The 6'2," 215-pound senior has also sustained knee injuries. His Buckeyes play at Michigan State on Nov. 8 and finish the regular season Nov. 29 at home vs. Michigan.
Per May, redshirt freshman JT Barrett will get the starting nod Aug. 30 vs. Navy in Baltimore.
