Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller will underwent minor surgery on his throwing shoulder, with Ohio State confirmed the surgery on Friday afternoon.

Ohio State said that Miller "had minor, outpatient surgery on his right shoulder" and that he'd be limited this spring. The surgery is not expected to affect Miller's status for the 2014 season.

The Buckeyes are scheduled to hit the field March 4, with the annual spring game set for April 12 in Ohio Stadium.

Unlike 2013, when Kenny Guiton guided the offense in Miller's stead, there is not much experience behind the three-year starter. Offensive coordinator Tom Herman suggested to the Columbus Dispatch that the order of quarterbacks behind Miller will likely be sophomore Cardale Jones, redshirt freshman J.T. Barrett and early enrollee Stephen Collier.
