Miller signed a reserve/future contract with the Steelers on Monday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. Miller was traded to the Texans from the Bears over the summer and had five catches for 23 yards and a touchdown in two games before being cut in early October. He spent the rest of 2021 on the Steelers' practice squad and caught one pass for two yards in his lone game action.
Miller was restored to the Steelers' practice squad from the COVID-19 list Tuesday, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports. Miller can return to practice with the Steelers now that he has cleared protocols.
The Steelers have placed Miller on their practice squad's reserve/COVID-19 list. Via Tom Pelissero of NFL Network, Miller's placement on the COVID list is the result of a positive test. As a result, Miller will be required to pass league protocols before returning to practice.
Miller reverted to the Steelers' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction log. Miller played 25 of 60 offensive snaps in his Pittsburgh debut, and he caught his only target for two yards. The 27-year-old will now compete for another opportunity for a game-day elevation.
Miller secured his lone target for two yards in Sunday's 41-10 loss to the Bengals. Miller was elevated from the Steelers' practice squad for Sunday's matchup since Ray-Ray McCloud (undisclosed) was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday. Although the 27-year-old was on the field for 40 percent of Pittsburgh's offensive snaps, he failed to generate much production during his first appearance with the team.
