Miller isn't expected to be significantly limited in the spring.
Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller’s status for spring practice is uncertain, as the Heisman Trophy candidate will have minor shoulder surgery. ElevenWarriors.com first reported the news on Thursday night.
Miller’s shoulder injury occurred in the Orange Bowl loss to Clemson, but he finished with 234 passing yards on 16 completions.
Miller’s injury is to his throwing shoulder, but the surgery is regarded as minor.
It’s uncertain if Miller will be forced to miss any practices or if he will just be limited. If Miller is out or limited for any of the practices, Cardale Jones and J.T. Barrett will have an opportunity to work as the No. 1 quarterback.
