COLUMBUS — A surgery billed as minor in February has invited major speculation six months later.

Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller reportedly reinjured his repaired right shoulder in practice on Monday night, leaving the Heisman contender’s senior season and the fifth-ranked Buckeyes national championship ambitions in jeopardy.

The Columbus Dispatch first reported the injury late Monday. A team spokesman could not immediately be reached for comment while the severity of the injury could not be confirmed.

Miller’s uncertain status likely means redshirt freshman J.T. Barrett will open the season as OSU’s starting quarterback on Aug. 30 against Navy.

Miller underwent surgery for a partially torn labrum in February.
