The Pittsburgh Steelers are a mess at a number of positions right mow, and the tight end position may be the one in flux the most. Pro Bowler Heath Miller missed all of training camp and the preseason recovering from an ACL tear in December in a crushing loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, but he could be returning in time ti get his revenge this Monday night.
The Steelers may have Miller back for their AFC North showdown with the Bengals on Monday Night Football, according to CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora:
"“Miller has impressed the Steelers with his recovery as well, being activated from the PUP list only recently, and a return for Week 2 is likely in his case,” he writes. “Miller was a vital cog in coordinator Todd Haley’s offense a year ago, the team is thin at tight end and faces a critical game against the Bengals in the second week.”"
They’ll need him soon after No. 2 TE Matt Spaeth went down with a foot sprain and is on the IR-recall list.
