Steelers | Heath Miller ready to play
Fri, 20 Sep 2013 12:03:15 -0700
Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Steelers TE Heath Miller (knee) has practiced in full three straight days and says he's ready to return to action in Week 3 against the Chicago Bears, but the decision will be up to the coaching staff. "Whenever I'm ready to play I think it's unrealistic to think I'm going to come back in midseason form," said Miller, who caught 71 passes for a career-high 816 yards before shredding his knee in the 15th game last season. "I've had some positive days this week so we'll evaluate how I felt, how the coaches think I looked, and I'm sure they'll make a decision based on that."
Miller isn't a lock to play, so obviously he's a risky choice to put into your starting lineup. Even if he does play, he's unlikely to see a large amount of snaps. Bench him for now.
