Chicago Bears tight end Zach Miller underwent urgent vascular surgery at a New Orleans area hospital Sunday night to repair artery damage in his dislocated knee, according to an ESPN report Monday morning.
Miller suffered the gruesome injury in the third quarter of the New Orleans Saints' win over the Bears at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. The Bears medical staff placed Miller on a cart after the injury, and he immediately went to a local hospital.
ESPN reported the surgery was an "effort to save his injured leg," so this was obviously a very serious situation.
Shaheen is making the tricky transition from Division II college football to the NFL, but he’s a second-round pick. And high picks are expected to contribute immediately.
Shaheen has only one reception, a 2-yard touchdown catch, in eight games. That needs to change in a hurry, the story said. All the physical traits are there. Shaheen is 6-foot-5, 270 pounds, and perfectly built to catch passes inside the red zone. Granted, the Bears offense doesn’t reach the red zone all that often, but they should use Shaheen more when they do.
