The Pittsburgh Steelers are readying themselves for a big divisional game this coming Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals and as usual, head coach Mike Tomlin held his weekly press conference on Tuesday during which he updated the overall health of his team prior to their first practice of the week.
According to Tomlin, tight end Heath Miller (rib) “has a chance” to return Sunday against the Bengals after missing the Sunday night game with a knee injury. His practice participation during the week will be key.
Cornerback William Gay (concussion) is still in the concussion protocol and Tomlin really doesn’t have an update on him. He was knocked out the Sunday game late with a head injury. Gay, however, hasn’t missed a game yet during his career.
As far as other injuries go, linebacker Sean Spence (hamstring) and tight end Matt Spaeth (knee) might be limited at the start of the week. Spence sat out Sunday night with a hamstring injury while Spaeth re-injured his knee in that game.
