Miller set to return for Week 6 | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

Bears WR Anthony Miller (shoulder) put in a full practice on Wednesday. That puts him on track to return for this weekend's game against the Dolphins. The rookie averaged 3.7 targets across his first 3 games. He's not a fantasy option but does put a slight dent into the target projections for Allen Robinson, Taylor Gabriel and Trey Burton.

Bears WR Anthony Miller will undergo surgery on his left shoulder and is expected to be sidelined until training camp, GM Ryan Pace said. That's the same shoulder that Miller had surgery on last January. He then missed spring workouts, which might help explain why he got off to such a slow start in 2019. We'll keep an eye on his rehab this go-around.

Bears WR Anthony Miller (ankle) returned to practice on Monday and said afterward that he'll be 100% for Week 1. The Chicago Tribune's Dan Wiederer suggested last week that Miller could be limited early on this season, so we'll be keeping a close eye on his practice participation. A healthy Miller should emerge as Chicago's #2 WR this year.

The Chicago Tribune's Dan Wiederer believes WR Anthony Miller (ankle) could be limited early on this season. The 2nd-year wideout has been sidelined for almost 2 weeks now with his sprained ankle. And he spent most of the offseason rehabbing from January shoulder surgery. When healthy, Miller remains a good bet to be Chicago's #2 WR. But the durability problems make him just a late-round flier in fantasy drafts.

HC Matt Nagy said Sunday that WR Anthony Miller sprained his right ankle in Saturday's practice, the team announced. Nagy said he doesn't expect the injury to challenge Miller's Week 1 availability. We'll see how soon the 2nd-year wideout returns to the field.

Bears WR Anthony Miller left practice Saturday with an apparent injury to his right ankle or foot, according to ESPN's Jeff Dickerson. Miller reportedly landed awkwardly after a jump ball in a 1-on-1 drill. We'll keep an eye out for a specific diagnosis. If you're drafting today, perhaps wait an extra round on Miller. He's going late enough to be relatively low-risk either way, though.
