Seahawks tight end Zach Miller left Saturday night’s preseason game against the Titans with a concussion — the fourth concussion of his NFL career.
Seattle coach Pete Carroll said after the game that Miller’s concussion didn’t appear to be severe. But for a player with Miller’s history, it has to be worrisome.
A 2007 second-round draft pick of the Raiders, Miller suffered two concussions in 2009 with Oakland, then suffered another concussion last year, his first season in Seattle. Miller has spoken about the importance of making smart decisions when it comes to concussions, and that includes taking as much time to recover as necessary after being diagnosed.
There’s no word on how long Miller will miss with this injury. Miller is the Seahawks’ starter at tight end, and while he’s out Kellen Winslow will move into the first-string offense.
