According to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, Steelers tight end Heath Miller will likely be back for next week’s divisional game against the Bengals.
Miller has impressed the Steelers with his recovery as well, being activated from the PUP list only recently, and a return for Week 2 is likely in his case. Miller was a vital cog in coordinator Todd Haley’s offense a year ago, the team is thin at tight end and faces a critical game against the Bengals in the second week.
After losing to the Titans today, the Steelers could use Miller’s veteran presence.
