Ohio State QB Braxton Miller says he's throwing again

Dr. Saturday

Six months after reinjuring his surgically repaired right shoulder, Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller says he’s been able to resume throwing with his sights set on the 2015 season.

After winning the Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year in 2012 and 2013, Miller went down during preseason camp. His injury caused him to miss the entire 2014 season. Despite his absence, the Buckeyes made a miraculous run behind backups J.T. Barrett and Cardale Jones en route to the National Championship.

With all three quarterbacks set to return, rumors have swirled about Miller potentially transferring to another school for his final season of eligibility. Even with the noise, Miller has maintained that he’s going to be a Buckeye in 2015.

Now that his rehab has reached the point that he’s throwing again, it appears he’s gearing up to compete to get his starting role back.

The quarterback battle in Columbus should be one for the ages.
