Setback for Miller

The Steelers suffered a blow Thursday when tight end Heath Miller was forced to sit out practice with headaches, a lingering symptom of the concussion he suffered two weeks ago in Baltimore.

That could be bad news if Miller is unable to play Sunday against the Jets. With the Jets banged up at safety, Miller would be a heavy target if he plays.

If not, the Steelers are forced to settle for Matt Spaeth trying to go over the middle - ugh.

© On a related note, Darrelle Revis is suffering from a bit of a hamstring injury. That could be good news. But it also continues to lead me to believe the Jets will have Revis follow Hines Ward and Cromartie shadow Mike Wallace.

© Bryant McFadden and Flozell Adams both returned to practice today, but James Harrison sat out for the second consecutive day with an illness.

Well, as much as I am a fan of Heath, and this is a huge game for the media, I think he should sit out this game. If we beat Carolina & the Brownies, we got the #2 seed, which to me is Howard Huge!! I still think which ever team does NOT play Baltimore in the 2nd round of the playoffs goes to the Super Bowl from the AFC...

Just read Polamalu is likely to sit out also. I guess we aren't as healthy as Tomlin suggested during his presser.
