Trey Burton, Anthony Miller expected to be ready for Bears’ training camp
The Chicago Bears have high hopes for the 2019 NFL season. Fortunately, it appears they will have two of their more key players ready for Training Camp in tight end Trey Burton and wide receiver Anthony Miller.
Both players have spent the offseason recovering from surgery. According to Larry Mayer of the team’s official website, general manager Ryan Pace indicated that they will be ready to go:
“We’ll be smart with those guys and how we ramp them in like we always are,” Pace said Sunday during a pre-camp press conference in Decatur. “But we expect to go into this training camp in a pretty healthy state.”
This is certainly an encouraging update for Chicago. Burton spent the offseason recovering from a groin injury. Meanwhile, Miller has been doing what he can to get his shoulder back to 100 percent. Fortunately, it seems they made enough progress to get the go-ahead for camp this week.
The Bears put an emphasis on shoring up the receiving corps around quarterback Mitchell Trubisky in recent years. Burton was among the notable signing Chicago had made last offseason free off his Super Bowl win with the Philadelphia Eagles. He became an integral part of the offense and enjoyed a career year after hauling in 54 receptions for 569 yards and six touchdowns.
Chicago also witnessed Miller emerge into a promising talent moving forward. The former second-round pick was able to play through the injury to finish the 2018 campaign with 33 receptions for 423 yards and a team-high seven touchdowns.
The Bears are undoubtedly excited to see what he can do when 100 percent healthy.
