WR Anthony Miller reportedly has suffered a serious injury that will keep him out “several months,” according to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler, who tweeted the news a short time ago. He compared the injury, or at least the time missed, to what happened to JuJu Smith-Schuster in 2021.
Here’s what Fowler tweeted out.
As first reported by Dale Lolley and confirmed and expanded upon by Fowler, Miller’s season is over, and he’ll soon be placed on IR. He won’t be eligible to return. That will likely happen today as the Steelers trim their roster from 90 to 85. Miller apparently suffered the injury either late during Thursday’s camp practice or during Friday’s closed walkthrough. He did not play in Saturday’s preseason opener and was not spotted at practice yesterday.
Miller, a former second-round pick of the Chicago Bears, was signed by the Steelers last season. Spending most of the year on the practice squad, he appeared in only one game, catching one pass for two yards. He was battling to be the sixth WR on the depth chart this year and had a good start to training camp. Now, Miles Boykin appears to be in the driver’s seat for that spot.
For his career, Miller has caught 140 passes for 1,589 yards and 12 touchdowns.
