Heath Miller made it through both days of practice this week and is good to go Thursday night against Cincinnati.
Offensive coordinator Bruce Arians said, however, they expect Miller to probably tweak the ankle here or there - nothing serious - and to be limited to about 75 percent of the offensive plays.
If you've ever had a badly sprained ankle before, you know how easy it is to turn it again doing the most simple of things. But the pain goes away pretty quickly.
It kind of gives you an idea, however, of how serious they're taking this game.
The Steelers could allow Miller another week off to rest the ankle and get it ready for the game at New England. But they're going to put him on the field at less than 100 percent this week because they need this win against the Bengals.
Miller likely can't do any more damage to the ankle, but the Steelers need him to make their offense go.
