Urban Meyer: Braxton Miller’s shoulder is ‘right on schedule’

Braxton Miller

Shoulder surgery won’t stop Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller from playing in the Buckeyes’ opening game against the Navy Midshipmen.

Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer was asked about the status of Miller’s shoulder as the season nears.

“I anticipated this,” Meyer told the Columbus Dispatch‘s Bill Rabinowitz. “We’re being very cautious. He’s right on schedule.”

Miller is nearly six months removed from the surgery. As a precaution, the team has limited Miller’s throwing during practice sessions, but Meyer is happy with the quarterback’s overall progress. Miller still isn’t 100-percent healthy at the moment, though.

The Buckeyes are going to need a fully healthy Miller for the offense to be successful as it continues to gel, particularly along the offensive line. Miller is a legitimate Heisman candidate, but he will have to prove he has improved as a passer, while also serving as the team’s top rushing threat.

Navy will be a good opening test for Miller and the Buckeyes’ offense. The Midshipmen defensive front is undersized, and it will be an opportunity for the Buckeyes to control the game at the line of scrimmage. Miller shouldn’t have to shoulder the offensive load during the first week of play, but he’ll be ready as the team progresses throughout the season.

    He’s not legit. He can’t pass. Only at Suckeye State do they encourage QB’S that can’t pass. They are still in the Woody Hayes 3 yards and a cloud of dust mindset.

    It’s ok every one knows scUM doesn’t have a Heisman contender on the team… especially that pick throwing qb they have

    What’s great is when idiots make comments on how bad Miller is and he is 100 times better at being QB than you’ll ever be at anything. 20 year old kid and all you can do is criticize him or critique his ability. Why are you not a scout or playing football uncle Rico? Pathetic losers that mock a kid that only plays a game in college.

    Uncle Rico lmao!

    I played against Braxton in high school… dude is a true competitor! Saw him do things to my team that were amazing

    @dkkhuey

    Yeah, because the Buckeye fans don’t troll Michigan articles at all…

  13. jrs45 says: Aug 10, 2014 10:44 PM

    tigersfandan,

    I agree we talk a lot of smack. But hearing it from a Browns fan is priceless.

  14. brownsmakemecrazy says: Aug 11, 2014 4:42 AM

    Love how hypersensitive Suckeye fans are. I know it’s contrary to what you always hear from your homers in the media about how great Thug U is. There is actually great football played it just isn’t played in Corruptubus.

    If you want to watch real football, watch the SEC.

  15. brownsmakemecrazy says: Aug 11, 2014 4:53 AM

    Suckeye State if you played in the SEC, you would have 4-5 losses every year. Consider yourselves lucky you play in that cesspool of a conference that can’t seem to count how many teams are in the conference.

    Isn’t it nice to have a coach that the last year got destroyed in the SEC and claimed phony health issues and wanting to spend time with his family? Lol. He’s perfect for you Suckeye fans. He’s a fraud just like your team.

  16. jrs45 says: Aug 11, 2014 7:53 AM

    Hey Clowns fan,

    First of all if you want to watch real NFL football watch a Steelers game. You know the team that’s beat the Clowns 18 of it’s last 20 games. That’s great you like Sec. Who is your team??? Kentucky Miss St? You are trash clowns fan. Go burn a lake on fire or better yet try and get a job in that city. When I think of Cleveland Browns fans I think of fat white trash and broke down Obama phone ladies.

  17. jrs45 says: Aug 11, 2014 7:55 AM

    That’s a look at brownsmakecrazy’s girlfriend and fellow Clown fans.

    @ brownsmakemecrazy:

    As usual, you have nothing better to do than post hateful comments. As usual, you extol the SEC, yet do not divulge which college team you support. Why not man up for once in your life and state your team?

  20. watchfullhose says: Aug 11, 2014 12:19 PM

    As a browns fan, this jamoke does NOT speak for me.

    Brutusbuckeye2011:

    Just because you look through Scarlet and Gray colored glasses doesn’t mean everyone else worships them like you myopians. Anyone that has a clue and isn’t a homer knows they are the most overrated team every year. They blow out scrubs and pound their chests because they beat up on sorry teams, then every time you have to play a real team you get rolled.

  22. brownsmakemecrazy says: Aug 11, 2014 7:08 PM

    Hate? Lol. Yeah Urbs health problems were so severe and he wanted to spend so much more time with his family that he worked for ESPN. The guy is a flat out liar and a hole. He couldn’t take the a$$ kicking Sabana laid on him in the SEC championship game and knew he wasn’t even close to Alabama that’s why because he’s a quitter, not due to health issues and wanting to spend time with his family.

    Like I said you and him are a perfect fit. SUCKEYE STATE AND URBAN LIAR ARE BOTH FRAUDS

  23. jrs45 says: Aug 12, 2014 10:33 AM

    brownsmakemecrazy,

    Go play in traffic douche.

  24. brutusbuckeye2011 says: Aug 12, 2014 1:19 PM

    @ brownsmakemecrazy:

    You still won’t answer my question regarding which college team you root for. Why? I can only assume that you don’t really have a team. You only enjoy trashing teams. You really need to do something about your deep rooted psychological problems that make you such a hateful troll.

  25. noworries2359 says: Aug 12, 2014 4:09 PM

    i’ll bite. The SEC is overrated on a consistent basis. And it dominoes. Florida was a top 10 team a few years back and ended up having a losing season. But the loses or I guess wins from the other team looked great, guess what they got ranked. And like I said it dominoes from there.

    In a nutshell Alabama and LSU are really your only 2 legit teams from the SEC. South Carolina and Georgia always find ways to lose 2-3 games against bad teams, but somehow end up in the top 10, if not top 5 = mind-boggling. TN, Kentukcy, Vanderbilt, Arkansas and Miss State are just laughing stocks. Auburn came out of nowhere after a terrible season…they are looking pretty good. Ole Miss is decent, but will be terrible again within the next few years. A&M is done. Mizzou will come back to normal this year.

    Don’t get blindsided by the media love for the SEC. They are extremely top heavy and the middle teams are overrated consistently. I watched Alabama and Auburn lose in big boy games last year…Alabama got extremely outplayed to a team that got destroyed by TEXAS. So hate OSU and the big 10 all you want, but the SEC is overrated. Do they have a better product than the Big 10, yes, but it really isn’t like leaps and bounds here.

    as far as your cry baby attitude towards Urban Meyer. Its funny how people cry foul when they are attacked…but are blind by the fact that they are doing the exact same thing. You don’t know Urban Meyer, you are not his doctor. You don’t know his family dynamic. And yet here you are crying about his ‘fake’ health problems and how he now coaches in Ohio. Get over it already. Dude took a job where he always to have a job. Nope, never heard of that one before….Come on man

    noworries2359,

    Standing ovation!
