Miller suffered a broken right foot late in the second quarter, coach John Fox confirmed after the Bears’ 22-16 loss to the Giants on Sunday at MetLife Stadium.
Miller had recorded three catches for 61 yards and a touchdown, a 19-yard connection from quarterback Jay Cutler in the first quarter. In the final minute of the second quarter, Miller had his foot stepped on in a scrum. He hobbled off and chucked his helmet away before being greeted by team medical personnel.
Miller has yet to play a full season in his NFL career, which began in 2009. He missed three straight seasons due to injuries, returning in 2015 and playing 15 of 16 games.READ MORE: 71-Year-Old Man Shot Multiple Times, Killed While Heading To Store To Buy Newspaper In Chinatown
