Chicago Bears Will Miss Injured Zach Miller
Zach Miller was a pleasant surprise for the Chicago Bears this preseason. Unfortunately, that’s where pleasant ends.
Zach Miller’s season is over after suffering a foot injury early on in the Bears 20-19 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars. Miller looked like he was on the cusp of jump-starting his career in Chicago, but will now spend the season on the sidelines after damaging ligaments in his foot.
Marc Trestman and the rest of the Bears coaching staff were thrilled with Miller’s camp, and he continued to impress in the first preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles, catching six balls for 68 yards with two touchdowns.
On the surface, the injury wouldn’t look like a major blow to the Bears’ prolific offense. They have plenty of weapons for Jay Cutler to utilize including Brandon Marshall, Alshon Jeffery, and Matt Forte. Starting tight end Martellus Bennett is also a favorite target of Cutler’s as well, but the loss of Miller will hurt.
Miller provided the Bears with some much-needed depth at the tight end position and showed the ability to step in if Bennett is injured or misses any time during the season. The Bears are also struggling in their search for a third wide receiver, and although Miller would not have filled that void, he would have been able to give the Bears a legitimate additional receiving threat in two tight end sets.
The Bears will still score plenty of points this season without Zach Miller, but he would have brought multiple dimensions to a Chicago offense that would have become all the more lethal with him in the fold.
