Miller suffered one of the more gruesome injuries you will see in professional sports while trying to make a touchdown catch. Miller, a longtime NFL veteran, came down awkwardly on his left knee, suffering not only ligament damage, but also a torn popliteal artery that required emergency vascular surgery to repair.

Dr. Charles Bush-Joseph and Dr. Nikhil Verma, both sports medicine orthopedic surgeons at Midwest Orthopaedics at Rush, joined local Chicago news affiliates to discuss Miller’s injury and what the recovery process will be like. Dr. Bush-Joseph says that the odds of Miller playing football in the NFL again are “very small.”
