Ohio State’s fans and online betting shops were very relieved when they found out that Braxton Miller’s scheduled surgery on Tuesday on his torn labrum was a complete success.
The Buckeyes must now feel a lot better after they learned that coach Urban Meyer said that Miller’s surgery went well. Now, many fans hope that the team’s morale will receive a huge boost after the news, and the player’s high spirits should also help.
Even though the season is over for the player, the most important thing is that the operation went well, and he’s expected to make a complete recovery, but many fans were sad to learn that he will have no choice but to be on the sidelines this season.
On Monday, Meyer said that Dr. James Andrews would perform the operation, and many in the football world believe that he got the right doctor, as he’s very famous in the world of sports as being one of the best in what he does.
Online betting shops saw that Miller was not able to play in spring camp due to an injury that he suffered on his shoulder when Clemson defeated Ohio State in their Orange Bowl showdown, and many fans were very concerned when they found out that the senior had another injury, as he tore his throwing shoulder’s labrum on August 18 while holding practice, something that won’t let him hit the field in 2014.
The senior is expected to return to Ohio State in 2015, and the player’s fans are very hopeful to see him make it back with no problems whatsoever.
On Monday, the coach also said that even though Miller will not be part of the lineup, he will be one of the Buckeye’s captains during the season.
J.T. Barrett – very talented Redshirt freshman – will be the one to replace Miller. The team’s fans seriously hope that he proves to be as good as the player he’s replacing.
Barrett’s first start will take place in Baltimore this Saturday at 12 p.m. ET, when Ohio State takes on Navy in a game that is highly anticipated by many fans.
News of the player’s successful operation by was first reported by the Associated Press.
