TE Miller Misses Practice with an Exercise-Related Headache

It was a bad news day on the injury front for the Steelers, as starting tight end Heath Miller missed practice due to an exercise-related headache. His status for Sunday vs the Jets is now up in the air.

It’s hopeful that he can be back on out on Friday, but if not, the Steelers may take the sitting out as a sign that he’s not ready to go, and may sit him another week with a short week next week as the team will play on Thursday the 23rd vs the Panthers at home.

Miller was cleared to resume practicing and did so Wednesday, only to be sit out of Thursday’s practice.

Another key player that sat Thursday was linebacker James Harrison. He sat out practice for a second successive day with an undisclosed illness.

They are finally acknowledging publicly what we’ve been saying here all along: Ben goes for broke too often. Now we’ll see if recognition translates into points. Letting Legursky lead Redman through a few holes might help. Designing pass patterns for a quick release (less than 3 seconds) and delayed crossing routes is recommended too. At least try something innovative. Our redzone performance must improve, or our time in the playoffs will be brief.
