Will he be ready? Won’t he be ready?
No, it’s not a love poem, it’s just the consistent struggle for Steelers fans and the team concerning if Pro Bowl TE Heath Miller will be ready to go in week one vs the Titans, and if not, when he truly will be ready to play.
It was reported over the weekend that Miller would miss about a month of action, which would be a huge blow to a Steelers offense that has had major issues the first two presason games.
Now Tuesday, CBS Sports’ Jason LaCanfora, citing a league source, said very much the opposite, stating that the Steelers “expect Miller back for practice the week before their home opener Sept. 8 against the Titans, and he could return to the lineup sooner than some have reported.”
Last season Miller was the team MVP, and right now remains on the PUP list after a gruesome ACL injury in week 16 last season at home vs the Bengals.
With the struggles on offense and the lack of depth at the TE spot, any news about Miller being back sooner rather than later is good news at this point for the Steelers.
