LAKE FOREST Garrett Bradbury Jersey , Ill. (AP)and his doctors aren’t either.Whether the Chicago Bears‘ tight end can play again after a gruesome injury last season nearly cost him his left leg still is to be determined.”There has not been a definitive `You can never do this again,”’ Miller said.”That hasn’t been talked about. It’s approach this as you are planning to get back to where I can be myself and play football, and then when that time comes some of that is out of my hands. So, I’m just going to do as much as I can to get to that point and see what happens.”The Bears placed Miller on the physically unable to perform list on Tuesday, one day after he signed a one-year contract. The deal was at least a goodwill gesture for a popular player who dislocated his knee trying to make a touchdown catch during the Week 8 game at New Orleans. He has undergone nine surgeries since then, but was walking on his own by late December.Miller has been spending several hours a day at the team’s facility in rehab and meetings. Though he is not yet allowed to run, he can at least play with his children.He’s also wearing a brace on his leg to hold up a dropped foot that was brought on by nerve damage. The nerve started functioning again in the past month, and Miller ”wanted to have a party” that day.”I don’t think I’ve ever been mentally defeated – ever http://www.vikingsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-irv-smith-jr.-jersey ,” he said. ”I feel good. I’m happy with where I’m at and with my recovery. I’m happy with the steps that we’ve made. Positivity has been one of my qualities that’s helped get me through all this stuff. I’m in a good place right now.”He said being around the team, having ”that brotherhood” and people who ”check in on me” helps.Miller also praised chairman George McCaskey and an organization that has ”taken care of me since Day 1.””It’s tough for me to put it into words what it means to me, but very thankful and just grateful to be a part of this family,” he added.Defensive end Akiem Hicks was glad to see the organization taking care of his teammate.”That’s what it said to me, that they’re willing to make sure that we’re all right and give us the opportunity to get better and just loyalty,” he said.Coach Matt Nagy called it ”without a doubt” the ”right thing to do.””I was happy for him,” Nagy said. ”We talked along with (general manager Ryan Pace) and it’s a good story and it needed to be done.”Miller signed a futures contract with the Bears at the end of the 2013 season. After spending 2014 on injured reserve, he started 28 of 33 games while making 101 receptions for 1 Alexander Mattison Jersey ,161 yards and 11 touchdowns the past three years. He also spent three seasons with Jacksonville.A healthy Miller probably would have a big role on a team that invested heavily on the offense in the offseason in order to get the most out of quarterback Mitchell Trubisky.The Bears hired an offensive-minded coach in Nagy to replace the fired John Fox and overhauled their receiving group, most notably signing Allen Robinson.They believe bigger things are in store after four straight last-place finishes in the NFC North. And Miller would love to play in Nagy’s offense.”That’s the bittersweet part of it, seeing first of all how awesome Coach Nagy is, not only as a guy but his football knowledge is unbelievable,” Miller said.”Very cool, very collected, has a little bit of swagger to him, which is just fun to be around. Then you go to the football field and you look at the scheme that we have. It would be a lot of fun to be a part of. It’s not in the cards quite yet for me to take part in that.”But as I sit and I watch and I see the weapons that we have and what we’ve added http://www.vikingsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-dru-samia-jersey , the dynamic ability that we have as a collective group, positive future here and I’m excited to be a part of it.”— FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — For each of the past two seasons, the identity of the Patriots defense didn’t become clear until late in the year.Both times the group had stumbles early, followed by steady improvement. Those leaps were aided at least in part by the increased contributions of newcomers or role players that previously had much smaller roles.That pattern is holding true in 2018 as the Patriots prepare for back-to-back road games at Miami and Pittsburgh that will go a long way in determining their playoff seeding.Earlier this season, New England’s opponents took advantage of a defense that struggled to get pressure up front and that was susceptible to giving up big plays in the secondary.After allowing 300 or more passing yards four times in its first seven games, New England (9-3) has not allowed a 300-yard passer in five straight games. It also has not allowed a 100-yard rusher in nine straight games, going back to Week 3 against the Lions when Kerryon Johnson did it.Those are important markers for a Patriots defense that has had trouble recently at Miami. New England is 17-7 against the Dolphins since 2007 Daniel Jones Jersey , but has lost four of its past five at Hard Rock Stadium.Ryan Tannehill threw for 350 yards and two TDs in the Dolphins’ 20-10 win in the 2015 regular-season finale in Miami.That came a season after Knowshon Moreno rushed for 134 yards and a touchdown in Miami’s 33-20 win to open the 2014 season. Tannehill had two touchdown passes in that game to help the Dolphins outscore the Patriots 23-0 in the second half.“It’s a week-to-week challenge in the season,” Patriots Bill Belichick said of his defense’s evolving identity. “We haven’t established anything against Miami, so we’ll have to go down and do that on Sunday and we’ll see what happens. Certainly, they’ll be a big challenge for us.”Since allowing a season-high 40 points in their win over Kansas City in Week 6, only two teams have scored more than 17 against the Patriots over the past six games — Chicago (38-31 win over the Bears) and Tennessee (34-10 loss to the Titans).One reason the Patriots defense has tightened has been the improvement of the secondary. That has included key contributions from rookie cornerback J.C. Jackson, who has seen an increased role since Eric Rowe was placed on injured reserve at the end of October.Jackson has two interceptions and contributed to another in last week’s win over Minnesota, tipping Kirk Cousins’ pass into the hands of teammate Duron Harmon in the closing minutes.Linebackers coach Brian Flores, who is calling plays for the defense this season Ed Oliver Jersey , said Jackson and fellow rookies Keion Crossen and Duke Dawson have earned the trust of their teammates through their work ethic off the field.Belichick said Jackson’s ball skills first caught their attention as an undrafted player in the spring.“He’s just been very dependable and gotten better every day. It’s not always perfect, but he learns from his mistakes and corrects things,” Belichick said. “It’s taken a little time for him to gain some experience, but he’s doing a good job with it.”Safety Devin McCourty said Jackson’s willingness to be on an island at times will serve him and the team well going forward.“I think we’re starting to feel it that he knows we believe in him,” McCourty said.“We know he’s talented and can play and we’ve got his back. … We had him in some tough situations where we were counting on him to make plays sometimes by himself with no help and he showed up. He had been doing that every time we gave him an opportunity to be out there.”
