Shark Bites

Bears TE Zach Miller expects to be recovered by April from the fractured Lisfranc he suffered in his right foot this past November. "Everything's going great. I'll be ready when we get back in April," Miller said. "Everything's going according to plan, ahead of schedule. I've been through this exact rehab schedule before. I know what it entails and I've been able to bounce back and play at a high level before, and I'm comfortable with that." Miller suffered the same injury during the 2014 preseason and was placed on IR. He's never made it through a full 16-game season and will be nearly 33 years old when the 2017 season kicks off. Chicago needs to address TE this offseason.

Bears TE Zach Miller dislocated his left knee in Sunday's loss to the Saints, according to Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune. That's almost certainly a season-ending injury for Chicago's lead TE. It'll leave snaps and targets available for TEs Dion Sims and rookie Adam Shaheen. Neither makes for an attractive fantasy option, though. Shaheen, in particular, has not looked ready for regular duty as he transitions from Division II Ashland University.

Bears TE Zach Miller suffered a nasty looking leg injury in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's game against the Saints. He was carted off the field and immediately ruled out for the game. This looked like a season-ender. We'll update Miller's status when we learn more.

The Chicago Tribune's Brad Biggs says "don't be surprised" if TE Zach Miller doesn't crack the Bears' final roster. This actually makes plenty of sense. The Bears are rebuilding on offense and might not want to give snaps to an injury-prone 32-year-old. They also gave $10 million guaranteed to TE Dion Sims in free agency and drafted TE Adam Shaheen in the 2nd round of this year's draft. The team is also high on TE Daniel Brown, according to Biggs. This is a group to stay away from in fantasy drafts right now.

ESPN's Adam Schefter confirms that Bears TE Zach Miller will miss the rest of the season with the broken foot he suffered in yesterday's loss to the Giants. He's signed with Chicago cheaply next season and figures to be back with the team. But the Bears could certainly use an infusion of young talent at the position. We'll see if undrafted rookie TE Ben Braunecker can make any noise down the stretch.

Bears TE Zach Miller broke his foot in Sunday's loss to the Giants, according to insider Zach Zaidman. That'll likely end his season. Chicago is left with only Logan Paulsen and Ben Braunecker at TE. WR Alshon Jeffery is also suspended for another 3 games.
