The only positive that would have been taken out of Miller going down is the fact that he might get corrective surgery on his arm taken care of earlier, but head coach Dick Jauron said that isn't the case.
"Honestly I don't know the answer to that because he'll be on crutches for a while," Jauron said of Miller having surgery on his aching right arm. "So I don't know that they could do anything that they might need to do until he's off the crutches because he'll be weight bearing with the arms and the shoulder. But eventually all of those things will be addressed -- the shoulder and the tendinitis."
In the meantime the Bears still have three games left and the team is focussing on the Jets.
New starting quarterback Chris Chandler compared the Jets to a team that the Bears should be familiar with.
"It's modeled in a way after Tampa Bay's style," Chandler said. "They've got good linebackers and their pass rush is good. They don't give up a lot of big plays. The Jets won't let you throw it very far down field. We'll have to find a way to get around that."
With the amount of the injuries the Bears offensive line has had changes the continuity among the group and the quarterbacks plays has suffered as a result of having to get rid of the ball quicker.
"The changes in t he offensive line this year have been very difficult," Chandler said. "It's hard for everybody with a lot of guys coming in then going out."
If the Jets are anything like the Bucs defense then Chandler could quickly become the next Bear to go down with an injury.
According to Jauron on Tuesday John Davis was feeling better, but a day later the tight end is out for the Jets game.
"He was feeling better, but I don't think he had seen a doctor when we had talked yesterday," Jauron said of Davis' change in status.
Keith Traylor is also questionable, as his calf injury still isn't 100 percent.
The Jets have no starters that are in danger of missing the game. Backup running back LaMont Jordan is the only player listed as questionable with an ankle injury.
