Anthony Miller Player Overview

Anthony Miller will be 26-years old on October 9 and was born in Memphis, Tennessee, where he attended a local high school playing both football and running track. He joined the University of Memphis football team as a walk-on and actually redshirted his 2013 season, and unfortunately had to miss all of the 2014 season due to injury.

In 2015 he played in 12 games, catching 47 passes for 694 yards and 5 touchdowns. Then in his final two seasons of Memphis, he broke out, catching 95 passes for 1,434 yards and 14 touchdowns in 2016, and 96 catches for 1,462 yards and 18 touchdowns in his senior season.

The Chicago Bears drafted Miller in the second round of the 2018 NFL Draft, and he was the sixth wide receiver off the board. DJ Moore, Calvin Ridley, Courtland Sutton, Dante Pettis, and Christian Kirk went above him.

Miller managed to play in 15 games as a rookie, catching 33 passes for 423 yards and 7 touchdowns. Then in the 2019 season, he played all 16 games catching 52 passes for 656 yards but only 2 scores.

Miller has suffered multiple injuries over the past six years, and they predominantly stem from two different body parts: his shoulder and his foot. A recurrent issue is his shoulder, and he also suffered a Jones fracture in his right foot at the end of his senior season in college, which was surgically repaired.

Miller’s shoulder injury likely has been bothering him through his college and NFL years. The origin is unclear, but I would not be surprised if he probably first suffered a dislocated shoulder when he was a teenager. When this happens to someone who is under 20 years old, there is a significantly high chance that they will suffer another di…
