On Wednesday, Steelers TE Heath Miller practiced for the first time since suffering a horrific concussion against the Ravens. By Thursday, though, some post-concussion symptoms had returned, and now, his status for Sunday’s game vs. the Jets is in question. Miller

"He experienced a little headache," offensive coordinator Bruce Arians said, via the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. "Very cautious. We're not going to take any chances with him."

Since the headache was deemed minor, the team hopes Miller can practice Friday and be ready to go Sunday.

Heath Miller suffers a setback

I believe the best judge of whether Heath can go on Sunday is Heath.  Headaches can be caused by just about anything.  If it persists, then caution should be taken.  Still steams me that this hit was only worth a $25,000 fine.  When I saw Heath's head go back and touch his back between the shoulder blades, I knew the hit was serious and high impact.  Good luck to Heath.

Heath Miller suffers a setback

If he doesn't feel right, then fine...sit him. But if he gets up to play, and wants to play...then hand him a thick helmet & tell him to have fun! There is way too much BS these days talking about being carefull. The NFL player career is fairly short lived & players need to be out there for the team & themselves, if they can be.

Heath Miller suffers a setback

He should just take the rest of the season off.  Why risk it?  My beloved Twins sat Justin Mourneau down for half the season, just out of respect for his "non baseball" life.  You only get one life, so don't throw it away because of manhood.  If you lose there is always next season, if your brain don't work you are finished.  I'm done.
