Chicago Bear's tight end Zach Miller is sure to miss a number of NFL matches this season after he had a knee dislocate during the Sunday's match against New Orleans Saints in Orleans. The knee dislocation has torn off at least two ligaments- which will take some weeks to heal.

Miller was carted off the field in the third quarter of the match- which they lost 20-12 to the Saints. Later he was officially ruled out of the remainder of the game. Coach John Fox told following the game that Miller dislocated his knee and he will spend the night in the hospital.

The 33-year-old end tight made a nice over-the-shoulder catch from Mitch Trubisky in the end zone for a score. However, his left leg bent awkwardly when he landed on the ground which ultimately took him to a knee dislocate.

The match official Carl Cheffers explained:

Obviously we are all familiar with the process of a catch at this point. So we ruled that he was going to the ground as a part of a catch. So when he goes to the ground, he has to survive the ground.

He continued,

He went to the ground, he temporarily lost control of the ball. The ball hit the ground. Therefore it's incomplete.

Miller has been playing with the Bears for three seasons while this season, he has 20 catches for 236 yards and two touchdowns. He'll be a free agent after this season.
