Found June 17, 2014 on Sports-Glory:
Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger said Monday that tight end Heath Miller has returned to form.   Miller, who was coming off ACL, MCL and PCL surgery, had 58 catches for 593 yards and a score last year.  Now healthy, Miller is looking to put up similar numbers to the 2012 season, when he had 71 receptions for 816 yards and eight touchdowns. “(It’s) huge, the way he has looked,” Roethlisberger told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. “He has looked healthy right from the get-go, looks kind of like the old Heath. One of the practices, he caught a pass about 12 yards downfield and made a move and actually made a guy miss and he finished all the way down the field. That was the Heath Miller we love to see. “ The Steelers minicamp begins Tuesday and runs through Thursday.  Roethlisberger said he will focus on building a rapport with the new guys. “Mostly about getting to know the new guys, getting work, I think we’re going to do a lot of no-huddle stuff, he said. “Just getting to work with some of the new guys, the younger guys, and staying healthy.” The post Ben Roethlisberger: Heath Miller looks like his old self appeared first on Sports Glory.
