Miller (Achilles) was placed on injured reserve on Tuesday.
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 will miss the remainder of the season after tearing his right Achilles tendon in Sunday's loss to the Raiders, Michael DiRocco of ESPN.com reports.
Miller will undergo surgery later this week, ending his season after only six games. The defensive tackle recorded 10 tackles on the year, but it will now be Abry Jones who takes over as the starter.
The severity of the injury is unknown, but it should be noted that Miller was unable to return to the game. The Jaguars have a short week, as they play the Titans on Thursday, so Miller's status will have to be monitored going forward.
Miller's temporary absence paves the way for Abry Jones to see increased playing time.
