According to the Dispatch’s Tim May, Ohio State starting quarterback Braxton Miller reinjured his right shoulder at practice this afternoon. May believes the injury could put Braxton Miller’s final season as a Buckeye in jeopardy.
Officials from Ohio State have yet to confirm the injury.
May believes that the injury is severe enough that backup quarterback J.T. Barrett will start the season as the number one quarterback against Navy.
Stunning news for the No.5 Buckeyes, but likely means J.T. Barrett will be the season opening starter.

Miller injured the same shoulder in January against the Clemson Tigers in the Orange Bowl. He was being brought in slowly during OSU’s summer camp to help keep him healthy for the season and to re-acclamate him to the full speed of the college game.
The two time B1G offensive and quarterback of the year talked to reporters after Monday morning’s practice for just the second time this season. Cleveland.com’s Doug Lesmerises posted the video as part of his morning practice update.
