While there’s not much good in Steeler Nation right now, the team may be getting close to getting one of its offensive stars back, that being tight end Heath Miller.
Mike Tomlin said today that he expects Miller to be able to raise his game and practice this week, this after being only a partial participant in practice last week.
“We expect him to work fully this week and see where that participation takes us,” said Tomlin. “Now make no mistake we are not expecting Heath to step out of a phone booth with a cape on, but we are looking forward to watching him work and letting the result of that work guide us as how we proceed throughout the week.”
Having Miller back would be a huge boost to an offense that has scored just 17 points in the first two losses of the season.
It would also give Ben Roethlisberger a weapon he sorely needs, as right now it looks as if he and the wide outs are simply not clicking.
