Bears' Zach Miller: Officially moves to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 | RotoWire

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.

Bears' Zach Miller: Vascular surgery deemed successful
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 | RotoWire

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: Receiving surgery to address artery damage
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller, who dislocated his left knee in Sunday's 20-12 loss to the Saints, underwent urgent vascular surgery following the contest to address artery damage, Chris Mortensen of ESPN reports.

Miller's injury certainly looked to be a season-ending one given the gruesome way in which the leg bent on an unsuccessful touchdown catch in the third quarter, but Mortensen relays that the tight end's situation is even "more significant" than initially believed. According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, Miller's knee was dislocated so far out of its normal position that he tore an artery, which required vascular surgeons to preside over his operation. At this point, doctors are hopeful to preserve Miller's leg first and foremost rather than merely allowing him to continue his playing career. The 33-year-old has hauled in 20 passes for 236 yards and two touchdowns in eight games on the season.
