Quarterback Braxton Miller is heading into his senior season with the Buckeyes.

Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller said on Monday that he's not worried about his sore shoulder. Miller had shoulder surgery in the offseason and missed spring practice, but he professes to be fine.

"I knew this was going to happen," Miller told reporters about his shoulder soreness. He also said he was 100 percent.

But offensive coordinator Tom Herman told reporters that Miller was having unexpected soreness in his shoulder. Still, Herman said he wouldn't use the word "concerned" about Miller's health.

Herman did note that, "At the end of the day, he missed three weeks last year and came back against Wisconsin and (had) one of the best games of his career," referencing Miller's return from a knee sprain last season.

Ohio State scrimmaged on Saturday, and coach Urban Meyer told reporters afterward that while Miller's shoulder structurally was fine, he was being held back some by soreness. Meyer also said he expected Miller to be ready for the season opener Aug. 30 against Navy.

"I have known Braxton for three years," Meyer said. "It's almost like looking at your son. You can see in his face if he's concerned, and he's not. So, I trust that he'll be ready."

Meyer also said, "Limited throws is where we're at right now."
