Two-time Big Ten offensive player of the year, quarterback Braxton Miller, re-injured his throwing shoulder in practice on Monday. He might miss the entire season. Seriously, he could really miss the whole year, a dislocated shoulder (we’ll know more after the MRI) is nothing to mess with.

So to Buckeyes fans, quoting fictional Springfield newsman Kent Brockman:

“is this the time to panic, start cracking open each other’s heads and feast on the goo inside? I would say yes, Kent.”

Ohio State officials declined to confirm Miller was hurt or speak to the severity of the injury. They even cancelled all media availability for the day to this situation. But said they would provide more information later in the day when they have more info. Here’s what we know so far.

From Fox Sports:

Braxton Miller, a senior, had missed all of spring practice after what was termed ”minor, outpatient surgery” on his right shoulder. When workouts resumed in August, he had been held out of a scrimmage and a few practices after experiencing some soreness in the shoulder. But he proclaimed last week and again on Monday that he was healthy and ready to go.

Head coach Urban Meyer said last week that the soreness was an expected result of Miller’s throwing in practice.

”I anticipated this,” Meyer said. ”I’ve dealt with guys with arm issues before, and we’re being very cautious. He could have practiced (in one of the workouts in which he didn’t play) but we’re in it for the long haul. So he’s right on schedule.”
