COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Two-time Big Ten offensive player of the year Braxton Miller, considered among the top contenders for the Heisman Trophy, reportedly reinjured his throwing shoulder in practice Monday.

Ohio State officials declined to confirm that the quarterback was hurt again or speak to the severity of the injury, first reported by The Columbus Dispatch.Miller, a senior, had missed spring practice after surgery on his right shoulder. He had been held out of a scrimmage and practices during fall camp after experiencing some soreness. But he proclaimed last week he was healthy and ready to go.If Miller is unable to play in the fifth-ranked Buckeyes' opener on Aug. 30 against Navy, redshirt freshman J.T. Barrett would likely get the start, backed by sophomore Cardale Jones.
