Bears TE Zach Miller is believed to have suffered ligament damage in his foot during Thursday night's preseason game.

X-rays showed Miller avoided a fracture, but he's expected to miss "some time." It could hurt Miller's roster chances because he's on the bubble, despite a highly productive preseason opener. He sounds week to week at best.

Bears TE Zach Miller was carted off the field in Thursday's preseason game with a foot injury.

Miller has an extensive background of injuries, including to his foot. It's the reason he fell out of the league in 2013 before the Bears gave him a shot on a reserve/future deal. Miller was the star of Chicago's exhibition opener, posting a 6-62-2 line. His season could now come into doubt.
Aug 14 - 9:15 PM

Bears TE Zach Miller caught six balls for 62 yards and a touchdown in Friday's preseason opener against the Eagles.

With Martellus Bennett on suspension, Miller capitalized. The Bears used him as an H-back out of the backfield, at slot receiver, and as an in-line tight end. He secured all six of his targets, catching touchdowns from both Jay Cutler and Jordan Palmer while running with the first and second teams. Once compared to Dallas Clark by old Jaguars TEs coach Mike Tice, 29-year-old Miller could appear on the re-draft fantasy radar as a streamer option if Marty B misses any regular season time. Miller should have Chicago's No. 2 tight end job on lock.

Jaguars waived/injured TE Zach Miller (calf).

He'll revert to injured reserve if he clears waivers. A converted quarterback, Miller has always had intriguing pass-catching ability, but simply cannot stay healthy. He landed on injured reserve last October with a shoulder injury, and has also battled knee and foot issues. His time in Jacksonville is likely through.

Jaguars TE Zach Miller will miss a "couple of weeks" with a calf injury.

Previously sidelined with a pectoral injury, Miller had just returned from a multi-week absence on Monday. Injury prone throughout his career, Miller's latest ailment severely damages his chances of making it past final cuts.

Jaguars TE Zach Miller (pectoral) returned to practice Sunday.

Miller is fighting through some pain in his partially torn pectoral, but has rushed back with his roster spot in jeopardy. Miller is due $565,000 this season, the final year of his rookie contract.

Jaguars TE Zach Miller is questionable for Week 1 due to a pectoral injury.

It sounds like a partially torn muscle for the oft-injured Miller. He's dealt with knee, foot, shoulder and now pectoral injuries since breaking into the league in 2009. This latest injury could put him on the roster bubble.

Jaguars TE Zach Miller was cleared to practice two weeks ago after undergoing shoulder surgery in October.

This is the first we've heard that the injury required surgery. The former quarterback believes he's more ready to play tight end now than at any point in his career, but he acknowledges that the burden is on him to prove he can stay healthy for a full season. Miller won't be a fantasy factor behind Marcedes Lewis in 2012.

Jaguars placed TE Zach Miller (shoulder) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Miller's career-long injury woes continue as his season ends with four catches for 42 yards and one touchdown in four games. He's battled knee, foot and now shoulder issues since breaking into the league in 2009. If healthy, Miller will be back as a reserve behind Marcedes Lewis for the final year of his rookie contract.

Jaguars TE Zach Miller (shoulder) has resumed practicing.

Miller sat out in Week 5. Buried on the depth chart behind Marcedes Lewis, he's well off the fantasy radar.
Wed, Oct 12, 2011 05:54:00 PM

Jaguars declared TE Zach Miller, CB Derek Cox, FB Montell Owens, S Courtney Greene, OL Jason Spitz, DE Aaron Kampman, and WR Kassim Osgood inactive for Week 5 against the Bengals.

The Jags' speedy second tight end has just four receptions while battling ongoing lower leg injuries this season. With Owens and Osgood sidelined, the Jags are without their two best special teamers.

Jaguars TE Zach Miller (shoulder) will not play in Week 5.

Miller has been incredibly injury prone since breaking into the league as a quarterback conversion out of Nebraska-Omaha. He has four catches on the year.
Fri, Oct 7, 2011 01:26:00 PM

Zach Miller caught three passes for 28 yards in a Week 2 loss against the Jets.

Miller drew the start with Marcedes Lewis sidelined and tied with Maurice Jones-Drew for second on the team in targets. He'll be relegated to backup duties in Week 3 if Lewis returns, and can safely be kept on the waiver wire in fantasy leagues.
Sun, Sep 18, 2011 04:45:00 PM

Jaguars TE Zach Miller is expected to start in place of Marcedes Lewis (calf) against the Jets on Sunday.

Highly athletic, Miller has proven to be a respectable pass catcher the past two seasons, making 41 catches for 428 yards and three scores. He's obviously a far from ideal fill in for Lewis in fantasy leagues, but it wouldn't be the most surprising thing if he had a productive day against a Jets defense that let Dallas' Jason Witten make six catches for 110 yards a week ago.
