Miller caught one pass for a 29-yard touchdown in Chicago's Week 6 loss to the Dolphins.
Miller caught his second touchdown over the last three games he's played. However, with just nine catches and four games played, he'll be a touchdown-dependent fantasy option unless his role in the offense increases.
Miller (shoulder) practiced fully Wednesday.
Miller suffered a dislocated left shoulder Week 3 and missed the Bears' Week 4 beatdown of the Buccaneers. However, the team's bye week has been a boon to Miller's health. It's unclear if he'll wear some sort of harness to avoid an aggravation of the shoulder injury, but he can now prepare in earnest for Sunday's showdown with Miami, whose defense has conceded 8.8 yards per target and three touchdowns to wide receivers this season.
Coach Matt Nagy said that he was hopeful Miller (shoulder) would practice Wednesday.
Miller sat out the Bears' Week 4 trouncing of the Buccaneers with a dislocated left shoulder, then benefited from some extra recovery time with Chicago on bye in Week 5. According to Patrick Finley of the Chicago Sun-Times, Nagy relayed that Miller did some "running around" in a light practice Monday, so it stands to reason that the wideout may be able to turn in a limited workout Wednesday. The Bears should have a clearer idea regarding Miller's outlook for Sunday's game against the Dolphins by Friday, when the team will hold its final practice of the week.
Miller (shoulder) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against Tampa Bay, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Miller tried to play through the pain after separating his shoulder in last week's win over Arizona, but he didn't have much luck and hasn't been able to practice since. The Bears likely will turn to some combination of Josh Bellamy and Kevin White to handle the No. 3 wide receiver job in a favorable matchup with the Buccaneers' leaky secondary. Miller has accounted for just 11 of the Bears' 104 targets, well behind Allen Robinson (28), Taylor Gabriel (22) and Trey Burton (15).
Miller (shoulder) didn't take part in Thursday's practice, Dan Wiederer of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Miller was visibly shaken up multiple times Week 3 at Arizona with what was later termed a dislocated left shoulder. On Thursday, coach Matt Nagy told Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune that he doesn't believe Miller will need surgery on the region. While Miller hasn't been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, there's a sense that a multi-game absence is in store for the rookie wide receiver, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
