Default Steelers' Miller likely to play Sunday against Jets

Steelers' Miller likely to play Sunday against Jets

PITTSBURGH TRIBUNE-REVIEW

Steelers tight end Heath Miller passed a post-concussion test, and barring any setbacks the sixth-year veteran will play Sunday against the visiting New York Jets. Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said Tuesday at his weekly news conference that Miller "has absolutely no symptoms" from the concussion he sustained in a Dec. 5 game against the Ravens. Miller will practice today, Tomlin said. Among the Steelers players who could be limited in practice this week because of injuries are strong safety Troy Polamalu (ankle), right tackle Flozell Adams (ankle), cornerbacks Bryant McFadden (hamstring) and Anthony Madison (knee) and linebacker Keyaron Fox (elbow). All are expected to play in the 4:15 p.m. game.

Consistent with his policy of not commenting publicly on officiating, Tomlin said that whatever issues he has with some of the hits quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has taken are between him and the NFL. Several Steelers players said after last Sunday's game that the officials are not doing enough to protect Roethlisberger. On keeping his talks with the league private, Tomlin said, "I think that is the prudent approach in getting what we desire, which, of course, is clarity or change."

The Jets were featured this year in "Hard Knocks." The popular HBO series has a camera crew embed with a team during training camp, and it has played to strong reviews. Not that Steelers training camp will be chronicled any time soon on HBO. "I have no interest, whatsoever, in doing 'Hard Knocks,' " Tomlin said.

tomlin's take

On the decision to trade wide receiver Santonio Holmes to the New York Jets last April:

"We realized that we were potentially weakening ourselves at the wide receiver position, but we were very optimistic about what Mike Wallace was capable of. We also knew that what we got in exchange for him would probably strengthen us in another position. Of course, we eventually used that pick to get Bryant McFadden. Those are the normal decisions that go on in our business, particularly in the offseason, when you are talking about building your football team. Usually it involves weakening you in one area and possibly strengthening you in another area."

On the 17 offensive holding calls that have been made against the Steelers in the last four games:

"No question that holding occurs just about on every snap in the National Football League. I think anybody in this industry will acknowledge that. What we need to do is cut down on the actions that are triggering the flags of course, which is grabbing and restricting, the jersey coming away from the body and so forth. We've got to do a better job of it, a more detailed job of playing technical."

On watching film of Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis, who has said he is frustrated because teams don't throw in his direction:

"I assume he is that good, because I don't have a lot of video evidence because nobody is throwing the ball in his direction. He has a right to be frustrated, and hopefully he is frustrated on Sunday."

On Jets center Nick Mangold, who might be the best player at his position in the NFL:

"I always tease Maurkice Pouncey. He wants to be the best center in the world. He can try by being the best center in the stadium on Sunday."
