ESPN is reporting that Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller is out for the season.
Ohio State says it will update the status of star quarterback Braxton Miller, who reportedly reinjured his throwing shoulder during practice.
The school had refused to comment on the report in The Columbus Dispatch and canceled scheduled interviews Tuesday.
School spokesman Jerry Emig did not say if Miller had medical tests or confirm he was hurt.
The Dispatch said the reigning two-time Big Ten offensive player of the year injured his right shoulder on a simple throw during practice Monday afternoon.
The senior and three-year starter had first hurt the shoulder in the Orange Bowl. He had surgery that prevented him from contact in spring practice and was held out of several practices and scrimmages in August.
Redshirt freshman J.T. Barrett is Miller's top backup.
Ohio State hosts Virginia Tech on Sept. 6. The Buckeyes open their season on Aug. 30 against Navy.
The Hokies host William & Mary on Aug. 30 before traveling to Ohio State.
