Miller left practice with an ankle sprain on August 10, but the team said they don't believe the injury is serious

Summary

Anthony Miller ended the NFL viewed as a pro ready prospect and delivered with a rookie season contribution of more than 400 yards in an ancillary role for the Bears' passing game. Miller was heavily used out of the slot (nearly 70% of his snaps) but featured average-level efficiency from his typical interior alignment. The upside for Miller to take a significant step forward is tempered with Allen Robinson entrenched as the team's top receiver, Taylor Gabriel (93 targets in 2018) returning, Trey Burton and Tarik Cohen both seeing 75+ targets a year ago, and Adam Shaheen returning from injury after a promising preseason outlook as the team's second tight end but missing all but the final games of the season. Chicago's passing game needs to take a strong step forward in terms of volume for Miller to truly emerge into a higher-level producer. (July 31)

Bears | Anthony Miller should be ready for Week 1 (Sun Aug 11, 05:28 PM) - Chicago Bears WR Anthony Miller (ankle) did not practice Sunday, Aug. 11, because of his sprained ankle, but head coach Matt Nagy said Miller should be ready for Week 1.

Our View: We won't trust Miller Week 1 because of the possibility for aggravation in his likely first game action in a month, but this means that his status as an upside bench receiver is still intact. Miller played last year with a bum shoulder that was surgically repaired in the offseason and should be more effective this year once he's healthy.

Bears | Anthony Miller injured Saturday (Sat Aug 10, 01:44 PM) - Chicago Bears WR Anthony Miller (foot) suffered a foot injury during practice Saturday, Aug. 10, but head coach Matt Nagy said he does not believe the injury is serious.

Our View: Javon Wims has had a good camp and could get more opportunity while Miller is mending. Miller was a good second half of draft sleeper, but if this is going to threaten his early season availability, it will relegate him to waiver watch list status.
