Miller has been out of action since Aug. 10 with what the Bears have said is a sprained right ankle. He suffered the injury during the team’s penultimate practice in Bourbonnais when he landed on top of Kyle Fuller’s foot. Miller’s absence is more significant after he also missed the bulk of organized team activities and minicamp while recovering from offseason shoulder surgery.
“The biggest challenge is the timing with the quarterback,” Nagy said Wednesday. “That’s the No. 1 challenge.”
Nagy emphasized that Miller has done well learning the offense. “But then,” he said, “it’s also getting the offense down and running it versus a defense and getting that play timed up and that route timed up with the quarterback.”
Anthony Miller is behind this summer due to rehabbing his injured shoulder and now a sprained ankle. He still has plenty of dynasty appeal but in most leagues, he looks like a fade to start the season. We could see a bit more work for Tarik Cohen with Miller limited, but there likely isn't a big boost for any one player.
