Shark Bites

The Bears selected Memphis WR Anthony Miller with the 51st overall pick of the 2018 NFL Draft. Few WRs were more productive over the past 2 seasons. Miller racked up 95 catches for 1,434 yards and 14 TDs in 2016, finishing top 10 in the country in all 3 categories. Then he set new career highs across the board last year with 96 catches, 1,462 yards and a nation-high 18 TDs. And he was efficient, ranking 4th among all draft-eligible WRs in Pro Football Focus’ yards per route run. Miller wasn’t able to test at the Combine but earned an 87th percentile SPARQ score at his Pro Day. So you’re probably asking, “why wasn’t this dude a 1st-round pick?” Well, he’s smallish at 5’11 and 201 pounds. He’s already 23 years old. And he suffered a Jones fracture in his right foot in his final college game — an injury that has a tendency to cause long-term problems. That said, a healthy Miller looks capable of winning at all areas of the field and as an outside or slot receiver. He’s a long shot to assume #1 duties in Chicago with Allen Robinson in town. But Miller only needs to beat out Kevin White and Taylor Gabriel for the #2 role in an ascending offense. This is a nice landing spot.

The Steelers signed WR Anthony Miller to the practice squad. He's expected to join the active roster soon. There's an opening in Pittsburgh's 3-WR sets with JuJu Smith-Schuster out for the season. We'll see how snaps are divvied between Miller, James Washington and Ray-Ray McCloud.

NFL Network's Aditi Kinkhabwala reports that the Steelers plan to have WR Anthony Miller in for a physical Tuesday. Barring a physical issue, that would obviously indicate Pittsburgh plans to sign the veteran. Miller seems a suitable fill-in for JuJu Smith-Schuster's vacated slot role. We'll see about projecting the group the rest of the way if Miller actually signs.

The Texans are cutting WR Anthony Miller, insider Aaron Wilson reports. It's a surprise considering Miller ranked 2nd on the team with 11 targets over the last 2 weeks. But Houston doesn't seem to be making moves with winning football games in mind right now. WR Brandin Cooks will continue to dominate Texans targets.

Texans insider Aaron Wilson hears that WR Anthony Miller "could" be back from his shoulder injury for Week 1 or 2. The MRI on that shoulder revealed a "slight" dislocation but no structural damage. So Miller avoided a serious injury, but he'll miss valuable reps with his new team over the next few weeks. He's a long shot for early-season fantasy value. Keke Coutee is in line to open the season as Houston's slot receiver.

Texans WR Anthony Miller suffered a "slight" dislocation of his right shoulder in Saturday's preseason opener. He's scheduled for an MRI, which should give us a timetable for his return. Miller has twice hurt his left shoulder as a pro and also dealt with a shoulder injury in college -- although we don't know if that was the left or right shoulder. We'll update his status when we know more.
