Miller Undergoes Shoulder Surgery

Braxton Miller underwent surgery to repair his torn labrum today.

Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller had successful shoulder surgery performed by renowned sports orthopedist James Andrews on Tuesday afternoon, he posted on Instagram.

"Me & the best to do it, Dr. Andrews after surgery today! So happy this man said everything went well!" Miller posted on the photo-sharing site.

Head coach Urban Meyer said this afternoon on the Big Ten teleconference, "Braxton and I talked this morning before he went in. He had surgery. Everything is good. It's very positive. All reports are there were no surprises and everything went well so he's out of surgery and he's going to be back tomorrow morning."

Andrews repaired the torn labrum suffered by Miller, the reigning two-time Big Ten player of the year, last Monday. Meyer said Miller faces a nine-to-12 month rehab, and Miller has said he plans to graduate this winter and then enter grad school while returning for the 2015 season.

Meyer said that Miller will not accompany the team to Baltimore for Saturday's opening game vs. Navy but could be part of the 70-man travel party going forward once his shoulder allows him to do so.

"He'd be one of the 70 if he can go," Meyer said. "He won't be able to go this time because of his (shoulder), but there will be times we have to make that decision."

Meyer also noted that Miller will not be able to get a waiver to join the traveling party without being part of the 70-player travel squad.

"They don't go for that," Meyer said.

Miller was voted one of five captains for the 2014 OSU team yesterday.
