Braxton Miller has been on a long road to recovery since offseason shoulder surgery, and re-injuring that shoulder this week made that road even longer.

The next step for Miller will come Tuesday, when Dr. James Andrews will perform surgery on Miller's torn labrum in his throwing shoulder, according to a report from the Columbus Dispatch's Bill Rabinowitz.

Miller had been slowly recovering from an injury suffered during the Buckeyes' Orange Bowl loss on New Year's Day. He missed spring practice and still wasn't practicing at 100 percent when he re-injured the same shoulder throwing an out route earlier this week.

Miller was ruled out for the 2014 season, sending shockwaves through college football.

Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer pegged the estimated recovery time at nine to 12 months, an interesting timeframe to note considering Miller has stated he'll be back for the Buckeyes in 2015.
