Bears’ Zach Miller Suffers Gruesome Leg Injury That’s Painful To Watch

UPDATE (5:20 p.m.ET): Here’s the reported diagnosis for Zach Miller:

ORIGINAL STORY: The phrase “insult to injury” took on new meaning in New Orleans on Sunday.

During the third quarter of the Chicago Bears’ game against the Saints, Bears tight end Zach Miller caught what appeared to be a 26-yard touchdown pass.

Video of the play, which contains images some might consider graphic, can be seen below:

Personally, we can’t see how that play was overturned, as Miller appeared to do everything that constitutes a catch. Although, who really knows what a catch is these days?
