Ohio State TE Jeff Heuerman ditched his No. 86 jersey for a different one against Navy.

With QB Braxton Miller out for the season with a torn labrum in his throwing shoulder, Heuerman wore No. 5 on Saturday.

He posted a picture of the jersey to his Twitter account on Saturday morning.

Last year, LB Ryan Shazier switched to No. 2 from No. 10 in October to honor Christian Bryant after Bryant broke his ankle. Shazier wore No. 2 for the rest of the season. No word if Heuerman will go back to his No. 86 after Saturday or keep wearing Miller's No. 5 for all of 2014.

In 2013, Heuerman had 26 catches for 466 yards and four touchdowns.

Unfortunately, Heuerman didn't put a bandage on the shoulder of his jersey to mimic the Braxton Miller mannequin at the Ohio State bookstore. After news that Miller was out for the season spread, someone put a bandage on the right shoulder (Miller's throwing shoulder) of the mannequin.
