Bears’ Anthony Miller posts season-high 77 receiving yards

Miller has caught 12 passes for 131 yards over the last two games — though he ran a route against the Rams at the wrong depth, leading to an interception.

Anthony Miller caught six passes for a season-high 77 yards.

“[Coach Matt Nagy] has certain guys that he wants to do certain stuff,” Miller said. “And I just showed up and did my job. Me and [quarterback] Mitch [Trubisky] clicked today.”

Miller has caught 12 passes for 131 yards in the last two games — though he ran a route against the Rams at the wrong depth, leading to an interception.

“You felt our passing game,” Nagy said. “Even with a guy like Taylor Gabriel, who doesn’t have all the numbers, but they know where he’s at with his speed. Every game might be a little bit different, and Anthony has done a good job of making sure he understands the route details, just like the Rams with that deeper pass on the comeback pick. And so the more of that we can get, the more it’s going to open up other guys, too.”

Injury report

Right tackle Bobby Massie left the game in the third quarter with a right ankle injury. He was in a walking boot after the game. Massie, who has missed only three games in 3½ seasons with the Bears, was replaced by Cornelius Lucas.

Special-teams ace Sherrick McManis hurt his groin while covering a punt in the second quarter and did not return.
