The Bears immediately ruled Miller out for the remainder of the game.

Chicago Bears tight end Zach Miller appeared to break his leg after making a catch against the New Orleans Saints that ended up not counting anyway. As Miller landed, his left leg snapped beneath the knee, but he held onto the ball until he rolled over and placed the ball on the turf at the Superdome.

Rookie quarterback Mitchell Trubisky floated up a well-thrown ball to the endzone, and Miller went up and grabbed it.

The unsettling National Football League injury of the week came via Zach Miller, the Bears tight end who endured a horrific leg injury when he was trying to corral a pass for a touchdown. The officials then overturned the initial call of touchdown. The ruling after the review perplexed many on social media. He was picked up by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but never saw the field. Despite the injury-plagued career, the Bears stuck with the tight end, signing him to a one-year extension on February 27, 2015. That would have been Miller's first catch of the game.

Miller finished the day with 0 catches on 2 targets in Week 8.
