Draft Scout News
08/22/14 - Surgery scheduled for Buckeyes' Miller...Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller is scheduled to have surgery to repair a torn labrum on Tuesday. The Columbus Dispatch reported that noted sports surgeon Dr. James Andrews will perform the operation in Pensacola, Fla. The injury is a partial tear. Recovery time is estimated between nine and 12 months. That would mean Miller would miss all of spring practice next year. Miller has indicated that he will forgo the NFL Draft and return as a fifth-year senior nest season. Miller had surgery in February for a partial labrum tear suffered in an Orange Bowl loss to Clemson. He was being eased back into action after sitting out spring practice, but on Monday he reinjured the shoulder while making a routine 7-yard pass. - The Sports Xchange
08/19/14 - Report: Braxton Miller reinjures shoulder, season in jeopardy...Here's a bombshell that could change the landscape of college football in 2014. The Columbus Dispatch is reporting that Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller reinjured his right shoulder during practice Monday, and that the injury puts Miller's entire 2014 season "in jeopardy." Ohio State has not confirmed the report, but a source tells CBSSports.com's Jeremy Fowler that Miller will undergo an MRI on the shoulder Tuesday morning. Miller was throwing an out-route in practice during non-contact drills and grabbed his throwing arm/shoulder and told coaches he felt something. Miller then spent the rest of the practice with ice on his shoulder, and was in good spirits.
Fowler was also told that Ohio State isn't sure how long Miller will be out, and won't be until it gets the results of the MRI. Whatever the results, losing Miller for any length of time would be a huge blow to the Buckeyes. Ohio State would go from a preseason favorite in the Big Ten to, well, nobody really knows. That's just the kind of impact player Braxton Miller is, as he's considered by just about anyone you ask a candidate for the Heisman Trophy this season. Miller had surgery on a partially torn labrum in his throwing shoulder in February after hurting it in Ohio State's Orange Bowl loss to Clemson. If Miller misses time -- for whatever length of time -- he'd likely be replaced by redshirt freshman J.T. Barrett, who is second on the Ohio State depth chart. - Tom Fornelli, CBSSports.com
08/19/14 - Report: Ohio State loses QB Miller for season...Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller, considered a preseason contender for the Heisman Trophy, sustained a dislocated right shoulder in practice on Monday and ESPN reported that he will miss the 2015 season. Ohio State is expected to update his condition later Tuesday. Miller was to undergo an MRI on Tuesday to determine the extent of the damage to the shoulder, which was surgically repaired in February after he was injured in the Orange Bowl loss to Clemson in January. The Canton Repository reported that Miller experienced instability in the shoulder while throwing a routine pass during Monday's practice. The Buckeyes returned to practice Tuesday morning without Miller.
Miller had been nursing the shoulder along during preseason camp. He did not participate in contact drills during the spring after the surgery. If Miller is unable to play this season, he would be eligible for a redshirt in 2015. Ohio State is ranked No. 5 in the preseason Associated Press poll and considered a contender to land one of the berths in the four-team playoff to determine a national champion this season. If Miller is indeed sidelined, redshirt freshman J.T. Barrett likely will be the starting quarterback for the season opener on Aug. 30 against Navy. Last season, Miller completed 63.5 percent of his passes for 24 touchdowns and seven interceptions and also ran for 1,068 yards and 12 touchdowns. - The Sports Xchange
08/19/14 - Ohio State title odds plummeting in wake of Braxton Miller news...Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller has not officially been ruled out for the entire 2014 season, but the sportsbooks across the country have already reacted to the reported news. At Bovada, Ohio State was downgraded from 12/1 to 18/1 after it was reported that Miller could miss some time due to a shoulder injury. That was just based on the idea that Miller could possibly miss some time, now that it is being reported that the reigning Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year will miss the entire season, sportsbooks are sliding the Buckeyes even further down the board. For comparison, 50/1 is also where Michigan and Texas were listed late last month. That is quite the slide for a team that many expected to win the Big Ten and compete in the first College Football Playoff. - Chip Patterson, CBSSports.com
08/19/14 - Braxton Miller will miss the 2014 season...Miller, who has yet to take a red-shirt season, entered his senior season with 5,292 career passing yards and 3,054 rushing yards to rank ninth and eighth, respectively, in school history and with the prospects of holding close to 20 school records. His 8,346 total yards and 84 touchdowns responsible for are each second in school annals. His 52 touchdown passes are fourth at Ohio State and just six from the school record. Miller, 26-8 as a starting quarterback, also entered his senior season as a viable contender for all of the major national awards.
His seven Big Ten Conference individual awards, including consecutive Chicago Tribune MVPs, Griese-Brees Quarterback of the Year awards and Graham-George Offensive Player of the Year awards, are the most in conference history. It was previously announced by Meyer on Saturday that Barrett, a 6-1, 225-pounder from Wichita Falls, Texas, had moved ahead of Jones for the No. 2 quarterback spot. Jones, a 6-5, 250-pounder from Cleveland, is the only quarterback on the roster with any game experience. He played 39 snaps from scrimmage last season in games vs. Florida A&M, Penn State and Purdue. - Ohio State football
