Found August 18, 2013 on Pro Football Zone:
According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette,  there’s a good chance that Steelers tight end Heath Miller won’t be ready to play until after the first month of the regular season, or possibly longer. Heath Miller probably won’t be back at least for the first month of the season and perhaps longer. Except for Ben Roethlisberger, no player is more important to both the running and passing games than Miller, a blocker nonpareil and the team’s best receiver last season. No disrespect to David Paulson and Jamie McCoy, but in no way do they resemble Miller. The Steelers badly want to regenerate their running game, and getting Miller (and Matt Spaeth) back will help Le’Veon Bell and the other backs. But when? There’s no doubt that Miller is one of the most underrated players on the Steelers offense.  I have a feeling they’ll figure out how to manage things without Miller.   Need NFL Tickets? Loading...
