Bears TE Zach Miller might lose his leg in surgery

Miller suffered the injury when he made an over-the-shoulder catch on a pass from rookie quarterback Mitchell Trubisky in the end zone, but after he landed, his left leg bent awkwardly. He needed to be carted off the field, and replays on the video board of his leg bending the wrong way drew groans from the crowd. The injury was replayed several times on the scoreboard and officials overturned the potential touchdown catch, saying the ball came loose when the 33-year-old tight end crashed to the turf. The Bears settled for Connor Barth's 44-yard field goal to cut the Saints' lead to 14-6.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with him", he said. "That was the rule".

But no matter how impressive the catch looked, how hard it must have been to maintain possession mid-injury and how inconclusive the replay appeared, the refs' word is final, so Miller wound up with a gruesome injury but no touchdown to show for it. He then fell to the ground with the ball still in his possession.

"We ruled that he was going to the ground as part of the process of the catch", Cheffers said.

Referee Carl Cheffers told a pool reporter that Miller did not complete "the process of the catch". The ball hit the ground, therefore it's incomplete.

Miller was placed on injured reserve last season with a broken foot - the same injury he suffered in the 2014 preseason - but still had a career-high 47 receptions for 486 yards. "He is loved in our locker room".
