For those of you who didn't notice, Zach Miller returned to practice today at the VMAC. This is no slight thing, considering that the depth behind the Pro Bowl TE consists of entirely unproven players, most notably rookie Luke "LL Cool Will" Willson and second year man Sean McGrath. During the interview, obvious questions and concerns were raised about Miller's connection with Wilson and the lack of development due to missed time in camp. While this is a great question to ask, I was more interested in the injury itself that has sidelined seam-pass catching, stalwart DE blocking playmaker.
Thankfully, a reporter had the same thought process I had and asked about the injury. Curiously, Zach declined to mention what it was, which I thought was curious. It almost seemed as if he was embarrassed by the injury. He did confirm that it was not the same injury sustained against the Falcons in the playoff game in January, and he did mention that the injury he had been suffering from was a result of his injury in Atlanta.
So I took to Google and typed in "injuries resulting from plantar fascia." I didn't really get too much from it, but there one possibility that I unearthed: bone spurs. I'd be interested to hear from some of our more medically inclined Field Gullers about what they think it was. Medical credentials aren't required, so if you're just a regular do feel free to weigh in with your own thoughts.
