It goes without saying that the Ohio State Buckeyes have championship aspirations heading into the 2014 season. With one of the most talented rosters in the nation and a Heisman Trophy candidate under center, head coach Urban Meyer had optimism heading into the regular year. 

That optimism might very well be muted at this point. According to a report by Tim May of the Columbus Dispatch, quarterback Braxton Miller reinjured his shoulder and could very well be lost for an extended period of time.

In a string of tweets, May suggests that Miller’s latest injury setback could cost him the entire 2014 campaign.

According to the long-time Ohio State football scribe, Miller was returning from offseason shoulder surgery and was slow to return to full activity. 

Miller was coming back from shoulder surgery performed in late February after he suffered an injury to his right throwing shoulder during the Orange Bowl loss to Clemson. He had been on a slow return to full practice activity, having sat out contact in spring drills and through most of preseason camp.

Miller tallied over 3,200 total yards and 36 touchdowns last season. He’s considered by many to be a top-round pick in the 2015 NFL draft and was one of the top preseason picks for the Heisman Trophy.
