Bears Lose Zach Miller To Injury On Overturned TD Catch

Chicago Bears

The Chicago Bears rode a rollercoaster of emotions on just one play:

Mitch Trubisky appeared to have a 25-yard touchdown toss to tight end Zach Miller, which could have drawn the Bears closer to the New Orleans Saints. It was a remarkable throw and a better catch, but Miller suffered a cringe-worthy leg injury as he came down with the pass. And upon further review, the NFL replay crew overturned the touchdown reception and ruled Miller did not catch the ball cleanly. The Bears settled for a field goal to cut their deficit to 14-6.

The Bears have been battered with injuries in Week 8. Right guard Kyle Long left the game with a hand injury and has not returned despite being listed as questionable. Center Cody Whitehair was removed from the game late in the third quarter with an elbow injury and was designated as questionable to return. The Bears have moved Josh Sitton from left guard to center, while inserting Tom Compton at right guard and Bradley Sowell at left guard.

Cornerback Bryce Callahan also had a knee injury sideline him against the Saints.

And yet, the Bears are still down by just eight early in the fourth quarter.
