  • Bears' Zach Miller: Officially moves to IR
    By RotoWire Staff

    The Bears placed Miller (knee) on injured reserve Tuesday, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports. Miller's move to IR is merely a formality after the tight end suffered a likely career-ending injury in the Bears' last game Oct. 29 against the Saints. While the vascular surgery Miller required to preserve his left leg was successful and he was cleared to head back to Chicago earlier this week, he's still set to undergo additional surgeries to repair the ligaments in his leg. The Bears signed fellow tight end Ben Braunecker from their practice squad to take Miller's spot on the 53-man roster.

  • Bears' Zach Miller: Cleared to return to Chicago
    By RotoWire Staff

    Miller was discharged from a New Orleans hospital Monday and cleared to fly back to the Chicago area, Patrick Finley of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Miller required emergency vascular surgery to repair a torn artery in his left leg after dislocating his knee in the Bears' Oct. 29 loss to the Saints, with doctors holding him in New Orleans the past week to oversee his healing. With the procedure deemed successful, Miller will be able to return home, where he'll continue to receive additional medical care. It's expected that Miller will need more surgeries to address torn ligaments in his leg, making it more likely than not that the 33-year-old's career is over.

  • The Bears announced Monday that the emergency vascular surgery Miller (knee) underwent to repair a torn artery in New Orleans on Sunday was successful. Miller remains hospitalized in New Orleans and is set to receive further evaluation, but the news that his surgery was successful should come as a welcome relief for the tight end, who had been at risk of having his left leg amputated after severely dislocating his knee in Sunday's loss to the Saints. Follow-up examinations should provide more information on the extent of Miller's setback, but his 2017 season is almost certainly over, and the injury could put his career in jeopardy. The 33-year-old Miller, who has caught 20 passes for 236 yards and two touchdowns over eight games on the season, had previously been sidelined for a three-year stretch from 2012 to 2014 due to injury.

  • Bears' Zach Miller: On tap for follow-up MRI
    By RotoWire Staff

    Miller is scheduled to undergo an MRI on Monday to evaluate the blood flow and anatomy of his injured left leg, which required vascular surgery following his departure from Sunday's 20-12 loss to the Saints, Chris Mortensen of ESPN reports. Miller suffered a severe dislocation of his left knee after he landed awkwardly on the leg while snagging a touchdown pass that was later overturned upon further review. He was later diagnosed with arterial damage to his leg, necessitating an emergency operation in New Orleans to preserve the limb. It remains to be seen if the procedure was successful, but the MRI should shed more light on that front.

  • Bears' Zach Miller: Dislocates knee Sunday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Miller dislocated his left knee during Sunday's 20-12 loss at New Orleans, Patrick Finley of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Miller suffered the injury at the tail end of what was called a touchdown catch on the field. While the Bears medical staff was stabilizing his leg with an air cast, though, it was determined he didn't complete the process of the catch. Miller has been taken to a New Orleans-area hospital, where it may be determined that surgery is necessary right away. Moving forward, the Bears will rely on Dion Sims, Daniel Brown and Adam Shaheen to hold down the fort at tight end.
