Chicago Bears tight end Zach Miller appeared to have made an impressive touchdown grab before suffering a gruesome leg injury on Saturday afternoon against the New Orleans Saints.
Miller pulled in the catch over his shoulder before his leg beg bent awkwardly as he crumbled to the ground. Miller was in obvious pain.
It appeared as though Miller had managed to hang onto the ball, but after review the refs overturned the call saying he was bobbling the ball on his way down. When your leg snaps, that’s an understandable reaction.
You can see the play where Miller’s injury occurred in the video above.

Wow worst officiating ever on a clear Zach Miller TD catch where he unfortunately blows out knee. Ref who reversed TD should be suspended. pic.twitter.com/CUs0m1BR8c
