Matt Nagy Hopes Injured Rookie Receiver Anthony Miller Will Practice Today

Chicago Bears News

One of Mitch Trubisky’s favorite targets could return to practice as early as today:

Bears Head Coach Matt Nagy is holding out hope that rookie wide receiver Anthony Miller will return to practice today. Miller, you’ll recall, missed the team’s Week 4 win against the Buccaneers because of a dislocated shoulder injury he suffered in Week 3 against the Cardinals. The Bears made up for Miller’s absence with 100-yard receiving games from Tarik Cohen and Taylor Gabriel as part of a day where five pass-catchers had their hands in catching six Trubisky scores. But still … it would be nice to have a healthy Miller back in the fold.

Patrick Finley of the Chicago Sun-Times reports the Bears’ plan is to put Miller in a harness that would keep his left shoulder in its socket. While that sounds awkward (and possibly even painful) for a guy like me, I can see a player with Miller’s heart and tenacity giving it a go in the harness in order to get back on the field and contributing with his teammates.

This is a big day for the Chicago Bears as they approach their Week 6 matchup against the Miami Dolphins, as we’ll get the team’s first updated injury report since before the bye. It won’t be long until we’ll know if Miller was able to get on the field and how much he participated in preparation for the Dolphins.
