According to a report filed by Alex Gleitman of 247Sports.com, Braxton Miller has been fully cleared to participate in football activities — including throwing — as of June 8th (Monday).
Miller, of course, hasn't been active for an Ohio State game since the 2014 Orange Bowl. He suffered a re-tear of the labrum in his throwing shoulder during last year's fall camp, an injury doctorsplained to us by our Aloiya Earl.
For Miller, this day must feel like a long time coming, but his work isn't done yet. He still has to beat out the reigning championship QB, as well as the Big Ten Freshman of the Year.
That's a tall task, but if there's anybody up for it, it's the dynamo from Huber Heights. Urban Meyer has said the quarterback is in the best shape of his life.
UPDATE (12:44 p.m.): One area man, it should be noted, disagrees with the report. Source fight!
Regarding Braxton Miller, a source close to the #OhioState QB told me there's been no change in his status. 1/2— Bill Rabinowitz (@brdispatch) June 12, 2015
Miller will see Dr. James Andrews later this month. Urban Meyer said last wk that Braxton has been throwing up to 35 yds.2/2— Bill Rabinowitz (@brdispatch) June 12, 2015
