Ohio State confirmed Braxton Miller endured surgery on his right shoulder today and is expected to be limited during spring drills.
Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller had minor, outpatient surgery on his right shoulder this morning at the Ohio State University Medical Center. He will be limited in his activities throughout spring drills, which start Tuesday, March 4 and commence with the LiFE Sports Spring Game, Presented by Nationwide, April 12 at 1:30 p.m. in Ohio Stadium.
The surgery, first reported by Eleven Warriors, was to address an injury Miller suffered on the fifth play of the Orange Bowl when he was sacked by Clemson's Vic Beasley.
While you always want your starting quarterback at full-go for spring camp, the surgery is a blessing in disguise of sorts as it will give valuable snaps to Cardale Jones, J.T. Barrett and Stephen Collier, all battling to replace Kenny Guiton as the world's most electrifying backup quarterback.
