Heath Miller could make season debut against the Bengals

As other Steelers are dropping on the infirmary list, tight end Heath Miller could make his debut against Cincinnati.

The last time Pittsburgh played the Cincinnati Bengals, Steelers tight end Heath Miller tore his ACL during Cincinnati's week 16 playoff-clinching win -- that still looks good. Now with the Bengals scheduled to host their first regular season game in Cincinnati on Monday Night Football, Miller could make his season debut against the same team that shelved him last year.

"Miller has impressed the Steelers with his recovery as well, being activated from the PUP list only recently, and a return for Week 2 is likely in his case," CBSSports.com NFL Insider Jason La Canfora said (via Behind the Steel Curtain). "Miller was a vital cog in coordinator Todd Haley’s offense a year ago, the team is thin at tight end and faces a critical game against the Bengals in the second week."

The Steelers need some good news after losing Pro Bowl center Maurkice Pouncey suffered an ACL and MCL injury as a result of David DeCastro's missed cut-block that landed directly in the back of Pouncey's leg. Larry Foote also ruptured his bicepts. Both are expected to be out for the rest of the season.
