According to the Columbus Dispatch, Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller has reinjured his right throwing shoulder.

Miller had surgery on the shoulder back in February after injuring it during the Orange Bowl against Clemson. Since the operation, Ohio State coaches have been slowly bringing back the senior quarterback into team activities.

Miller is coming off a season in which he threw for 2,094 yards and 24 touchdowns despite missing two games. He entered this year expected to be a Heisman Trophy candidate while leading one of the top teams in the country.

Before Monday’s setback, Miller was expected to start pushing himself more in practice this week.

His status for Ohio State’s opener against Navy on August 30th is now in question.

If Miller can’t go, the Buckeyes are expected to move forward with redshirt-freshman quarterback J.T. Barrett.
