After patiently waiting, it looks like Ben Roethlisberger and the rest of Steeler Nation will get their beloved tight end back this Sunday night, “Heeeaaatth” Miller. Since going out with an ACL in week 15 of the 2012 regular season, the Pittsburgh Steelers have only managed to win one game.
“I felt pretty good,” said Miller after Friday’s practice. “I have had some positive days this week. We’ll evaluate it and make a decision based on that.”
Miller is such a huge part of what the Steelers do offensively. He is a red zone threat along with being such a great blocker. Roethlisberger and the offense have only managed to score 19 points in their first two games of the season. However, the decision if Miller plays or not is left to Mike Tomlin and the medical staff.
“I can let them know how I feel and based on how they think I looked they will make the decision from there,” said Miller. “I can tell them I am good, but if they don’t think I will be productive I won’t be out there. It will be based on what I feel like tomorrow.” Miller said on Friday.
“I am excited,” said Miller. “It’s been a long time sitting and watching. I am close to the end now. It’s the hardest part figuring out when you are ready to go. I know it’s sooner rather than later.”
Not only is Steeler Nation excited, Miller himself is too. After participating through practice this week, time is getting close for Miller. All signs are pointing that he will play against the Bears on Sunday.
