Ohio State senior quarterback Braxton Miller's 2014 season is over but his Buckeye career is not.

In Ohio State's official release acknowledging Miller's shoulder injury, Miller says he'll sit out this coming season and return to Ohio State in 2015.

"I love Ohio State and Buckeye nation and my goal is to come back from this injury stronger than ever," Miller said. "I am on course to graduate in December and I want to attend graduate school and then return to lead the Buckeyes next season. In the meantime, I want to give all the support I can to my coaches and teammates as they chase a championship this season."

Miller, who originally injured the shoulder in Ohio State's Orange Bowl loss to Clemson in January, underwent surgery the following month. He began throwing in July but suffered shoulder soreness in camp. While attempting a pass at Monday's practice, Miller went down with another shoulder injury that will require surgery. 

"My thoughts and prayers are with Braxton and his family," Ohio State coach Urban Meyer said in the release. "This is an unfortunate injury to a young man who means so much to the program and to Buckeye nation."
