Miller (Achilles) was released by the Jaguars on Sunday, Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union reports. Miller spent a majority of the 2016 season on IR after tearing his Achilles tendon during the Jaguars' sixth game of the year. At this point, he figures to be replaced by either Sheldon Day, Abry Jones or Louis Nix at defensive tackle.
Miller (Achilles) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida-Times Union reports. The news shouldn't come as a surprise, as the defensive tackle was told he would miss the remainder of the season after tearing his Achilles tendon in Sunday's loss to the Raiders. The team promoted Richard Ash from the practice squad to fill Miller's roster spot.
Miller was not listed on the Jaguars' injury report on Wednesday after suffering a hand injury in Sunday's matchup against the Chargers. He's fully expected to play Week 3 in his usual starting role along the Jaguars' defensive line.
Miller is questionable to return to action after suffering an injury to his left hand during Sunday's game, Tad Dickman of the Jaguars Public Relations staff reports. Miller's temporary absence paves way for Abry Jones to see increased playing time.
Jaguars defensive lineman Roy Miller is scheduled to undergo arthroscopic surgery on Wednesday, according to the Florida Times-Union on Monday. Miller hopes that the surgeon is able to repair his torn meniscus instead of removing it. "The doctor is going in there to take a look at everything and hopefully we'll go with the quick route," Miller said. "If they can trim it, I'll be back on my feet the next day. If not, you have to wait for it to stitch together and then you take precautionary steps and that's maybe a couple of months." Miller sat out the final two games of the season before opting for surgery. He signed a four-year, $16.25 million contract extension five days after the injury. His season ends with 30 tackles and one sack.
