Pittsburgh Steelers TE Heath Miller (rest, non-injury) didn't practice Tuesday, Sept. 9.
Huddle Up: With RB Le'Veon Bell and starting WRs Antonio Brown and Markus Wheaton accounting for 20 of Ben Roethlisberger's 32 targets, Miller was targeted only four times and had three receptions for 26 yards in the Week 1 win over the Browns. He'll be a TE2 option Thursday night in Baltimore.

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Heath Miller had a team-high five catches for 53 yards, including a 27-yard touchdown reception, in the team's preseason game Thursday, Aug. 21.
Huddle Up: Miller is an underappreciated fantasy contributor, the kind of tight end you grab after everyone else has one or pick up off the waiver wire for a bye week plug in. With the Steelers losing 1400 yards and 16 touchdowns due to the departures of Jerricho Cotchery and Emmanuel Sanders, there are touches to be had in the Pittsburgh passing game; that means Miller could wind up with a few more fantasy-friendly stats on his plate.

The Pittsburgh Steelers may look to sign TE Heath Miller to a contract extension this offseason in order to reduce his 2014 salary cap figure of just under $9.5 million. Miller is entering the final year of his current contract.
Huddle Up: It only makes sense for the Steelers to keep Miller around, and to ease their cap pressure by stretching Miller's contract across a few more years in the process.

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Heath Miller (non-injury) was limited in practice Tuesday, Nov. 26.
Huddle Up: Miller, who should be good to go for Thursday night's showdown with the Ravens, has been targeted 19 times over the past 2 games, resulting in 13 catches for 108 yards. He remains stuck, though, on 1 TD catch for the season after hauling in a career-high 8 scoring passes a year ago.

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Heath Miller (knee) won't be restricted in the team's Week 4 game against the Minnesota Vikings.
Huddle Up: Miller had 3 catches for 35 yards on 4 targets in Week 3 as he played his first game since getting injured last Dec. 23 and expect the progress to be slow and steady.

Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Steelers TE Heath Miller (knee) has practiced in full three straight days and says he's ready to return to action in Week 3 against the Chicago Bears, but the decision will be up to the coaching staff. 'Whenever I'm ready to play I think it's unrealistic to think I'm going to come back in midseason form,' said Miller, who caught 71 passes for a career-high 816 yards before shredding his knee in the 15th game last season. 'I've had some positive days this week so we'll evaluate how I felt, how the coaches think I looked, and I'm sure they'll make a decision based on that.'
Huddle Up: Miller is expected to get the OK, and even in his limited condition, his return should provide at least a little lift for a sagging Steelers' offense. On the other hand, expecting much of anything out of Miller fantasy-wise, is likely still a few weeks away.
