TE Miller Likely Done for the Year After Tearing His Achilles

The season is likely over for Saints tight end Billy Miller, who suffered a torn right Achilles tendon during the second quarter of the Saints’ final preseason game Thursday night against Miami.

Miller, who was using crutches on Friday, said it felt like someone kicked him in the back of his right foot. When he looked around, he said no one was there.

The 32-year-old Miller said he expects to have surgery next week and looks at his upcoming layoff as a chance for him to get completely healthy.

Miller said the thought of his career being over does not creep into his mind at all. Last season, Miller caught 45 passes for 579 yards and one touchdown.
