Bears lose Zach Miller to dislocated left knee on negated touchdown

The NFL sure knows how to add insult to injury.

Bears tight end Zach Miller dislocated his left knee while making an incredible one-handed catch in the end zone against the Saints. The apparent touchdown was then overturned by replay officials.

Miller fended off Saints safety Rafael Bush to catch a 25-yard pass from Mitchell Trubisky. As Miller landed, his left leg sharply bent the wrong way at the knee, but he held onto the ball until he rolled over and placed the ball on the turf at the Superdome.

The play was initially ruled a touchdown, but as Miller was carted off the field with his leg in an aircast, a replay review overturned the call and the Bears were forced to settle for a 44-yard Connor Barth field goal. The Bears immediately ruled Miller out for the remainder of the game. 

Bears coach John Fox confirmed the injury following the 20-12 loss.
