Seahawks forced to place TE Zach Miller on injured reserve

News: Miller, who has been out since Week 3 with an ankle injury, was placed on season-ending IR, coach Pete Carroll announced at his Wednesday press conference.
Impact: Miller's primary contribution was blocking, which the Seahawks will continue to miss, but he also provided a solid TE target for Russell Wilson. Luke Willson and Cooper Helfet will continue to pick up the slack, but neither is the blocker nor receiver that Miller is. Both are dealing with minor injuries, as well. Carroll said Miller has not made progress in his recovery, and the team finally decided to shut him down with surgery likely.

News: Coach Pete Carroll noted Monday that while Miller (ankle) continues to work, the tight end is "not coming back fast," the Seattle Times reports.
Impact: As Sunday's game against Kansas City approaches, Miller would appear to be more week-to-week than day-to-day at this stage.
