Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller will have season-ending shoulder surgery on Tuesday, coach Urban Meyer announced.
Miller, who is right-handed, tore the labrum in his throwing shoulder last week. Dr. James Andrews will perform the surgery.
Miller was voted one of the team's captains for this season.
Miller has been a standout athletic quarterback for the Buckeyes when healthy. Last season as a junior, he threw for 2,094 yards with 24 touchdowns and seven interceptions in 12 games. He also ran for 1,068 yards with 12 TDs. It was his second straight season rushing for at least 1,000 yards.
Ohio State opens the season Saturday against Navy in Baltimore. J.T. Barrett, a redshirt freshman who has not taken a snap in college, will start in place of Miller.
