NEW ORLEANS -- Chicago Bears tight end Zach Miller was carted off the field with a left leg injury in the third quarter of Sunday's game against the New Orleans Saints.

Miller appeared to have caught a 25-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Mitchell Trubisky, but he landed awkwardly on his left leg. After an official review, the scoring catch was reversed because the officials ruled Miller did not maintain control throughout the catch.

Miller was carted off, and the official's ruling was announced. If the catch had stood, the Bears would have cut the Saints' lead to 14-10. They settled for a 44-yard field goal by Connor Barth, cutting the deficit to 14-6.

The Bears announced Miller was questionable to return with a left leg injury. Miller entered the game with 20 receptions for 236 yards and two touchdowns.
