Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Heath Miller isn’t getting any younger and there is a growing concern around the organization that the veteran tight end will be unable to go when the Steelers open their 2013 campaign. Miller continues to rehab from ACL, MCL and PCL surgery.
If Miller is unable to go, Matt Spaeth would get the start. Spaeth is an exceptional blocker, but he leaves a lot to be desired in the pass catching department.
Without Miller, the team loses another offensive weapon early in the season after the departure of wide receiver Mike Wallace and running back Rashard Mendenhall in free agency.
Pittsburgh will need to dig deep and find a way to find production if Miller is on the sidelines.
The Steelesrs have a long way to go in 2013 if they hope to return to the playoffs, but it certainly isn’t going to be easy any step of the way — especially if Miller is unable to suit up when the Steelers open up their season at home against the Tennessee Titans.
