Default Heath Miller to be activated by Steelers before Week 1

Heath Miller, not Mike Wallace or Antonio Brown, was the Pittsburgh Steelers' most valuable pass catcher last season. That's why the tight end's recovery from ACL surgery looms so large over the Steelers' 2013 campaign.

But the team's plan for Miller is starting to clear up. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette writes that the team wants to bring Miller off the active/PUP list before the start of the regular season, giving him time to work his way back into form.


The Steelers had a similar plan for running back Rashard Mendenhall last season. He wound up making his regular season debut in Week 4. The Steelers have a Week 5 bye after facing the Jacksonville Jaguars in London, so October 13 against the New York Jets could be a potential return date for Miller. If the Steelers left Miller on the PUP list to start the regular season, he would not be able to return until Week 7.

The Steelers are short at tight end with Miller's top backup, Matt Spaeth, out at least two months with a foot sprain. The team could have to make some hard decisions at the position, but they aren't yet bringing in outside help.

Miller's value to the team has often been understated. His absence could show how much he truly means to the success of Ben Roethlisberger.

You don't have to be rocket scientist to realize Heath Miller is coming off the PUP before the start of the season

I'll break my own obvious news: Steelers considering using IR/designated to return on TE Matt Spaeth, who had Lisfranc surgery on Sat
