    Heath ahead of schedule?

    From espn AFC North comlumn

    Tight end Heath Miller. He's the biggest question mark in the division. After excelling in the first season of Todd Haley's offense, he tore ligaments in his right knee in the second-to-last game of the season and had surgery on Jan. 2. He's no longer on crutches and was spotted walking without a limp last month. The Steelers have been vague on Miller's timetable. Some believe that Miller will be ready for the start of the season after the Steelers passed on Tyler Eifert in the first round and didn't take a tight end in the draft. But there's still a chance that Miller could miss the start of the season or be placed on PUP. Losing Miller would significantly impact Pittsburgh's passing game. Last season, Miller led the Steelers in catches (71) and tied for the most touchdown catches (eight). Without Miller, the top two tight ends on the roster are Matt Spaeth and David Paulson. Spaeth has averaged eight catches per season, and Paulson had seven catches last season as a rookie.

    I think a lot of us were expecting him missing about 8 games. I think he can be back by week 3-4.


    *******Can one of the mods change the spelling error in the title to schedule* Thanks

    Even if he could come back this season I don't believe he would be as productive so I would prefer to him sit it out and come back 100 percent physically and mentally next year.

    I'm a bulls fan, No. I do not want another Rose situation. If Heath decided that which I highly doubt, he better let everyone know he won't be playing this season.

    No way is he going say he can't play this season, that would be like asking a fat kid if he is hungry. The answer will always be yes.

    Ok so lets say he comes back and plays 80%.
    Heath at 80% >>>>>>> Spaeth/Paulson. Either way I think he'll be fine, if he's already running and do everything he's told theres no reason to be extra cautious on him. He's 30, not 23

    Ben will get killed if Heath plays at 80% and it really doesn't matter at this point because we won't see him till mid season at the earliest anyhow.
