Steelers Injury Report: TE Heath Miller Added Thursday As Limited

The Pittsburgh Steelers have now wrapped up their final practice prior to traveling to London this afternoon to take on the Minnesota Vikings this Sunday at Wembley Stadium and the Thursday injury report reveals just a few changes from the one released Wednesday.

Tight end Heath Miller (knee) was added to the report after being limited Thursday and while we don’t know for sure, him not practicing fully could have been a precautionary move. Miller played nearly 60% of the snaps last week in his season debut.

Cornerback Cortez Allen (ankle) and running back Le’Veon Bell (foot) both practiced fully again on Thursday and both remain on track to play Sunday against the Vikings. Speculation that Bell will actually start the game is growing, but the team of course has yet to confirm that.

Defensive end Brett Keisel (hamstring) and nose tackle Steve McLendon (hamstring) both practiced fully on Thursday as well. Keisel did not work on Wednesday, so this is a good sign that his hamstring injury is indeed not serious.

    I hope we did not rush 83 back too soon. We need him.

  • Mike Amaro

    I don’t think we rushed him back…the time he did play on Sunday he looked crisp and ready to go…..They probably just felt there was no need to put him in a situation that could ultimately result in a setback.

    Hopefully Cortez Allen can play a full game without getting hurt again. One thing is definitely for sure, these new guys are definitely not made of Steel.

    Ready or not, glad to see heath on the gridiron

    I wouldnt start Bell have him come in the second quarter. Use all three backs start Jones, have Bell come in and give Dwyer some carries. Earth Wind and Fire
