Pittsburgh Steelers’ tight end Heath Miller unsure on how much he’ll play on Sunday


This Sunday’s game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Chicago Bears is a must win for this struggling Pittsburgh team.

They’re going to need all hands on deck available and willing to go the extra mile to make big plays against one of the leagues top defenses. Last season Ben Roethlisberger said he wanted to make Heath Miller into a pro-bowl tight end.

Miller caught 71 receptions last season for 816 receiving yards and eight touchdowns before tearing up his knee late last season. Now Miller may be active and ready to play on Sunday, but right now the veteran tight end isn’t sure on how much he’ll play on Sunday’s battle against the Bears.

“I’ve never been through this type of injury when I missed an extended period of time. I’m not sure how my body is going to react. It’s hard to simulate playing football when you’re not playing football. Obviously, I missed a lot of football to this point. We’ll kind of play it by ear.” Heath Miller told the Pittsburgh-Post Gazette.

Not sure if he’ll play decoy for this game, but he could get a couple balls thrown his way sometime during the game.
