Have not kept up on the injury front this week! I take it from your comment that Heath is back this week? Have not kept up on the injury list much this week, no time. If so, this is good, hopefully Heath will be utilized like Spaeth was, Miller is a more dangerous TE

wow, i heard some bad info then. i heard miller practiced fully tuesday and was expected to start. wonder if it took a turn for the worse? still cant find miller being out anywhere else. if both are out, then that will hurt our recent success of the underneath stuff.

update: dont know which one is out of date, but nfl.com does not have miller on the injury report and spaeth as Q.

this is the latest i seen from today:

News: The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports Steelers TE Heath Miller practiced for the second consecutive day Wednesday, but he wouldn't commit to playing in Thursday night's game against the Bengals at Heinz Field. Miller, who missed the past two games because of an ankle injury, practiced with the first-team offense and appeared to be comfortable running his routes.

He was listed as out on that list for 11/14/2008 only - if you'll notice, Marvel Smith is listed as out for both 11/14/2008 AND 11/19/2008 on that list - I would assume that means Heath will be available tonight.

And did I hear someplace that Spaeth was injured too?

I really don't want to see Heath come back and hurt himself as it seems many of our players are doing.

But without Spaeth... if he is injured, we NEED a big TE.

I would love to see Heath turn his season around tonight he is due a big game and I couldn't think of anyone else I would like to see him do it against.

sweed?! are you kidding me?! we should trade him. we dont need him. we got washington who is the best WR3 in the league now since he doesnt drop easy catches any more, especially on 3rd down.......oh wait.....never mind.....

just seen the inactive list. miller or spaeth are not on it. i think miller will start and have a big night, but they left spaeth active in case miller's ankle gets re-aggravated. hopefully we wont have to see spaeth since he didnt practice much all week and miller did.
