(670 The Score) Veteran tight end Zach Miller was named winner of the Ed Block Courage Award by his Bears teammates, the team announced Monday.

Miller will be honored during a banquet Tuesday with the award that's given annually to the Bears player who "best displays professionalism, strength, dedication and is a community role model." The Bears organization first began awarding it in 1984.

Miller, 34, spent last season with the Bears on a split contract and was placed on injured reserve while he recovered from a horrific knee injury suffered in October 2017.

A Bear since 2014, Miller has 146 career receptions for 1,631 yards and 15 touchdowns since arriving in the NFL in 2009.

The Ed Block Courage Award helps benefit the Ed McCaskey Scholarship Fund, donating to high school, college and vocational scholarships for the children of Maryville Academy.
