Braxton Miller injury: Ohio State QB expected back at practice, ready for Penn State

Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller is expected to practice Tuesday and has been listed as the starter for Saturday's game against Penn State.

Miller suffered an apparent head and shoulder injury against Purdue this past Saturday. The injury seemed very serious, as Miller was carted off the field, however, he did not sustain a concussion.

In Urban Meyer's press conference Monday, the Ohio State head coach said that he had visited Miller while he was still in the hospital, and that the star quarterback remains very sore, according to Land-Grant Holyland. Meyer went on to say that Miller was still shaken from Saturday's injury, and he had "never been rattled like that before."

Ohio State offensive coordinator Tom Herman stated that Miller's health will have no affect on the play calling, and that Miller and Ohio State "have to win the game," according to Zac Jackson of Fox Sports Ohio.

Miller has established himself as a Heisman Trophy candidate through eight games for the undefeated Buckeyes. Miller is 105-of-179 passing for 1384 yards and 11 touchdowns, and he has added 959 yards and 10 touchdowns rushing as well.
