The Ohio State football program received what might be the worst piece of news any college football team could receive during fall camp on Tuesday: Starting quarterback Braxton Miller injured his throwing shoulder in practice and will miss the 2014 season.

Bad news for the Buckeyes. Miller was considered a preseason favorite to be Heisman Trophy finalist entering the year.

It’s a fate Oklahoma State coaches were happy to avoid, as offensive coordinator Mike Yurcich mentioned after Saturday’s scrimmage.
