HOUSTON – The Houston Texans are cutting wide receiver Anthony Miller, according to multiple reports.

Miller had been acquired in a trade this past offseason after a productive three-year stint with the Chicago Bears. However, the veteran wideout dislocated his shoulder in the Texans’ preseason opener against the Green Bay Packers. The injury led to Miller’s Texans debut being delayed until Week 3 of the regular season, when the Texans lost 24-9 to the Carolina Panthers on September 23. In that game, Miller scored a touchdown among his four catches for 20 yards.

In the team’s following game this past Sunday when the Texans lost to the Buffalo Bills 40-0, Miller’s production dropped to one catch for three yards.

Last season with the Bears, Miller caught 49 passes for 485 yards and two scores.
