Bears place Zach Miller on injured reserve

Bears tight end Zach Miller, who suffered a foot injury Thursday night vs. Jacksonville, has been placed on injured reserve, the club said Friday.

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, Miller has a Lisfranc foot injury.

The 29-year-old Miller was vying for a reserve role with Chicago. By putting him on injured reserve, the Bears will open a roster spot, and adding another tight end could be in the cards at some point. The club only has four tight ends on the 90-player roster: Martellus Bennett, Jeron Mastrud, Dante Rosario and Matthew Mulligan.

A fifth-year pro from Nebraska-Omaha, Miller has caught 45 passes for 470 yards and four TDs in his NFL career.

    There are actually 2 Zach Millers in the NFL, and they both play tight end. The one mentioned in this article went to Nebraska-Omaha and previously played in Jacksonville. You are thinking of the other Zach Miller who has played for both the Raiders and the Seahwaks, who went to Arizona State.

    Wow, I really thought he had better production based on all the talk over the years. Just seems really overhyped.

    I thought Zach Miller was a Seahawk TE.

    The one hit wonder that had the worst luck when he was damn good.

    Hope he’s healthy and awesome next season.
