    Steelers Miller has symptoms, doesn't practice

    Steelers tight end Heath Miller suffered a setback with his concussion and did not practice today, which leaves his status for Sunday's game against the New York Jets in doubt.

    Miller missed last Sunday's game against Cincinnati because of a concussion he sustained on Dec. 5 at Baltimore.

    He practiced for the first time since then on Wednesday, but sat out today when he experienced a mild headache.

    "He experienced a little headache," said offensive coordinator Bruce Arians. "Very cautious. We're not going to take any chances with him."

    Arians said he hopes Miller can practice on Friday and play on Sunday but they will not take any chances.

    "I sure have my fingers crossed, I hope so, but we're going to do what's in his best interests, his family's. We're not going to force anything. He's smart enough to make the right decision."

    We have got to have Heath for the playoffs, if he can't go this week then I would rather have him sit and get healthy. If he is able to go though, man that would be a huge lift for the offense. We're inconsistent enough as it is normally but without Heath it's a lot worse.

    Hopefully he just had a little headache it ends up going away. If he feels better tomorrow then hopefully he'll be good to go. I would imagine if not though they'll pull the plug on him or atleast make it a game time decision.

    If heath can't go, then (we) have no choice but Spaeth and David Johnson).

    Jets safeties are banged upbig time so (we) might be able to get away with Spaeth or Johnson, but hopefully Heath plays and makes a positive impact (particularly in the red zone).

    Not a real fan of Johnson, but he did catch some nice passes this year so far.

    Let him play more.. Spaeth is not the answer...

    For having an OC who has no FB on the roster and loves his TE's. You would think we would have some better TE's behind Miller.
