Seahawks tight end Zach Miller’s season is over.
Coach Pete Carroll confirmed today that Miller, who has been out since suffering an ankle injury in Week Three, will be placed on injured reserve. Miller had ankle surgery in Week Four, but the surgery didn’t completely fix his ankle injury, and now he’ll need a second surgical procedure. That will keep him out until 2015.
When healthy, Miller was Seattle’s best tight end, so that’s a significant loss. The rest of the Seahawks’ depth chart at tight end consists of Tony Moeaki, Luke Willson, Cooper Helfet and Rashaun Allen.
