Braxton Miller's rookie season might be over.

The Houston Texans are placing Ohio State rookie wide receiver Braxton Miller on the injured reserve list, according to a report by Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle.

Miller injured his shoulder, the same shoulder he hurt with the Buckeyes, during a game against the Green Bay Packers earlier this month.

From Wilson's report:

The Texans are placing rookie wide receiver Braxton Miller on injured reserve with a sprained, bruised shoulder, according to a source not authorized to speak publicly.

A converted quarterback from Ohio State, the third-round draft pick got hurt against the Green Bay Packers when he landed hard on his right shoulder.

Miller was replaced on the active roster by rookie wide receiver Wendell Williams, who was promoted from the practice squad.

Miller totaled 15 catches for 99 yards and one touchdown this season.
