Default Miller may be back for WK 12

Steelers healing; Heath Miller could return
By Scott Brown
TRIBUNE-REVIEW
Tuesday, November 18, 2008


The Steelers are in relatively good health as they prepare for the Bengals on a short week for each team.

Coach Mike Tomlin said tight end Heath Miller could return for Thursday’s 8:15 p.m. game after missing the previous two contests with a sprained ankle. Tomlin did rule out cornerbacks Bryant McFadden (arm) and Deshea Townsend (hamstring) for this week.

William Gay will make his second career start at the cornerback spot opposite Ike Taylor against the Bengals while Anthony Madison and Fernando Bryant will again share the role of nickel back.

Max Starks will start his sixth consecutive game at left tackle as Tomlin said things are still “status quo” with Marvel Smith.

Smith, Tomlin added, may need surgery to correct the back problems that have plagued him since early October.

As for the overall healthy of the Steelers, Tomlin said, “We came out of (last) Sunday’s game pretty good.”

Scott Brown can be reached at sbrown@tribweb.com or 412-481-5432.

You know, it's looking like a better and better option to just let Smith go, and pay Starks whatever he was making. He seems like he's doing OK over on that side again, and if you ask me, it looks like Smith's days as a top-quality starter are done.

See? That works out for everyone. Except Smith, I guess, but whatever.

He ruled out mcfadden, but the steelers website said mcfadden had full participation in practice today.

Good, so that means they can start ignoring him in the game plan this week then.

2 good things out that short article........

1. the return of Heath Miller and 2. no major injuries from the Bolts game.

Forward progress instead of one step forward and two steps back. Things are looking good for a relatively healthy team going into the final run. That's much better than what we faced last year. (thumbs up and fingers crossed).

I agree we need to get the to Heath when he comes although Matt has done a good job. Now it all starts upfront and, if we don't always have to use who ever is playing TE to block for extra protection for Ben our TE would be more envolved in the passing game. Then maybe when it is third down look for Miller or Ward as the no Brainer go to guys.

I agree that Matt has done a great job and now we will have 2 TE's that can hurt you in the passing game.

What kills me is that we have so much talent on O and its just not clicking right now. I hope they can all get on the same page real soon because I miss seeing the endzone.

Yup the more tightends we have the better. I will be happy when we get millers blocking back, and hopefully we use him like we did Matt.
