Miller agreed Wednesday with Washington on a one-year contract, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. After missing the entire 2019 campaign with an ACL tear, Miller spent time in Chicago and then Washington in 2020, making his lone game appearance Week 10 for the Bears. He'll turn 30 this spring and won't face an easy task to earn a spot on the Football Team's Week 1 roster. Washington has both Antonio Gibson and J.D. McKissic under contract for the upcoming season.
Miller played one game during the 2020 season, suiting up for the Bears in Week 10 and catching two passes for six yards. Coming back from his summer 2019 knee injury, Miller signed with the Patriots in August but was then released in early September. He later spent time with Chicago and Washington, logging a grand total of five snaps. The veteran running back can become an unrestricted free agent in March, a month before his 30th birthday.
Miller (coach's decision) is inactive for Saturday's wild-card game against the Buccaneers, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports. Miller has yet to play a game since signing with Washington on Dec. 16. Antonio Gibson figures to lead the team's backfield in its first playoff appearance since 2015. J.D. McKissic and Peyton Barber should rotate in as well.
Miller (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Eagles, Kyle Stackpole of Washington's official site reports. Miller hasn't made an appearance for Washington since being signed off Chicago's practice squad Dec. 16. With Antonio Gibson (toe) suiting up Sunday, the Football Team isn't in need of Miller's presence as an emergency option.
Miller (coach's decision) will not suit up for Sunday's game against the Panthers, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports. The 29-year-old was signed off the Bears' practice squad Dec. 16, but he has yet to make an appearance for his new team. Miller was still working his way through league COVID-19 protocols when Washington hosted Seattle last Sunday, but this time around, he's been sidelined by a coach's decision. With Antonio Gibson (toe) making his first appearance since Week 13, and J.D. McKissic playing his usual passing-downs role, Peyton Barber will be the only other back on Washington's gameday roster.
