Successful surgery to TE Zach Miller to repair a torn popliteal artery was performed immediately on Sunday by University Medical Center New Orleans' vascular surgeons to stabilize his injury.
We reported several outlets that said doctors were trying to save Miller's leg, so it was obviously a very scary and serious situation. The tweet said Miller is still in the hospital for further evaluation.
CHI TE Zach Miller - Week 8 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 8 at New Orleans Saints
Zach Miller caught 2 of the Bears' 4 pass completions last week, finishing with 29 yards. Miller has been one of the lone receivers to be involved in the passing game since Mitch Trubisky took over, but he's still not very effective. He carries some value as a red zone target in a favorable matchup against the Saints, but he's a low-end TE1 option this week, at best.
