LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) - Chicago Bears tight end Zach Miller has been placed on season-ending injured reserve because of the foot injury he suffered in Thursday's 20-19 preseason victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Miller left the game early and never returned. He had six catches for 68 yards and two touchdowns in the preseason opener as he tried to make the team as a third tight end behind starter Martellus Bennett and backup Dante Rosario.
The Bears added former Redskins wide receiver Kofi Hughes to the roster to fill Miller's spot.
There was no update from coach Marc Trestman on the ankle injury suffered by rookie cornerback Kyle Fuller.
