Bears’ Matt Nagy expects Anthony Miller to be ready for training camp
After missing offseason workouts with a shoulder injury, Bears wide receiver Anthony Miller’s recovery appears to be on track and coach Matt Nagy expects the pass catcher to be fully ready for training camp.
Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reported the news.
A 2018 second-round draft pick, Miller had a solid rookie season, catching 33 passes for 423 yards and seven touchdowns. The injury had lingered for a large part of the season, Miller admitted after the year was over, adding that he expects to be much better in year 2 when he is healthy.
Miller suffered through the injury to his left shoulder last year, which included five or six dislocations throughout the season. He had surgery to repair his torn labrum in January, and he’s on track in his rehab process. But it has forced Miller into a more observant role this offseason.
“He’s done a really good job of staying involved in the meetings,” Nagy said. “I can already tell with him not being involved out there he’ll hit me in the back and ask me about a play. Was it this play or was it that play? That tells me he’s engaged. So mentally he’s doing good.”
When Miller returns, likely next month for training camp, he’ll be looking to improve upon a strong rookie season in a Bears offense that has high expectations in Nagy’s second year. And, this time, he’ll have two healthy arms to work with.
