Chicago Bears tight end Zach Miller will remain in a New Orleans hospital after undergoing emergency surgery Sunday to repair a damaged artery in his left leg. The Bears announced Monday that vascular surgeons at University Medical Center New Orleans stabilized Miller's injury, which was diagnosed as a torn popliteal artery.
Zach Miller appeared to make a touchdown catch for the Chicago Bears. In the process of coming down, his leg bent in a way that it should not have, likely ending his season. Then, the officials reviewed it and took away the touchdown. It appeared that he maintained control after going to the ground, and then, understandably, in pain, he turned and released the ball. What a tragic injury, compounded by an absurd decision by the replay official.

Six teams expressed interest in Hoyer, who played one season in Cleveland under Bears offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains.

One of the most important events of every offseason is upon us and the excitement among football fans is on the rise. Just like any other hardcore fan, I’m getting ready for the draft and I decided to share my thoughts with this first-round 2015 NFL Mock Draft.
Memo to the McCaskeys: In the event the family or Bears President Ted Phillips thinks about meddling with presumptive new head coach John Fox, think again. Two weeks before the 1996 season-opener, Fox quit his job as Raiders defensive coordinator because of late owner Al Davis' micromanaging. He was 41 years old, considered an up-and-comer, but had enough of Davis' heavy-handedness so he packed up and left on principle. The risk resulted in Fox leaving the Raiders sideline and spending the '96 season as a consultant with the Rams, where he shared an office with Mike Martz.
