LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) - The Chicago Bears have placed veteran tight end Zach Miller on the physically unable to perform list one day after he signed a one-year contract.

The team announced the move Tuesday. Miller is attempting to return from a gruesome injury last October that nearly cost him his left leg.

Miller tore an artery while dislocating his knee trying to make a touchdown catch during the Week 8 game at New Orleans. He has undergone at least eight surgeries since then, but was walking on his own by late December.

Miller spent the past three seasons with the Bears, starting 28 of 33 games while making 101 receptions for 1,161 yards and 11 touchdowns. He also spent three seasons with Jacksonville.
