For the second straight day, the Pittsburgh Steelers received some great news.
Tight end Heath Miller practiced fully for the second time this week and the first time during his return from a knee injury at the end of last season. Miller is not expected to play every snap in the team’s Week 3 match up against the Chicago Bears, but he could see action in a limited role.
It could be a big boost for the team’s offense, which has greatly struggled at the start of the season.
Miller provides an upgrade with his blocking and gives the team a solid possession receiver underneath.
His return can also mean that rookie wide receiver Markus Wheaton can see an increased role in the offense and give the team the ability to stretch the field which they have greatly lacked since Mike Wallace left the team in free agency.
It is going to be interesting to see how things play out for the Steelers offense in Week 3 after their disastrous start, but the return of Miller could be the first piece of the puzzle that they have failed to figure out so far.
