Bears lose Zach Miller to gruesome leg injury on negated touchdown

New Orleans improves to 5-2 on the season, and keeps the top spot in the NFC South.

Zach Miller managed to hold onto a pass in the end zone as his left leg bent awkwardly, but not according to the National Football League rules, CBS Chicago reports.

During the 2017 campaign so far, Miller caught 20 passes for 236 yards and two touchdowns. In December of 2013 he was signed to the Chicago Bears where he has remained since. Instead, the Bears eventually settled for a field goal to make it 14-6. They're going to hurt us when we play a better team. He needed to be carted off the field, and replays on the video board of his leg bending the wrong way drew groans from the crowd.

The Bears and Miller will have to wait and see just how severe his leg injury is, but it would be safe to assume that the 2017 National Football League season is officially over for the veteran tight end. Do you think that Miller actually lost control of the ball? The ball hit the ground; therefore, it's incomplete.

His season may have been brought to an unexpected halt, however, and the referees in today's game may have added insult to injury by stripping away one of his touchdowns.
