Steelers’ Miller unsure of return date
Heath Miller knows his football career isn’t over, just paused. When the injured Pittsburgh Steelers Pro Bowl tight end will be able to hit the “play” button again is anybody’s guess.
While allowing there’s “a chance” his surgically repaired right knee could be ready before the season opener against Tennessee on Sept. 8, Miller thinks it’s too early to project just when he’ll slip on his No. 83 jersey and return to his job as quarterback Ben Roethlisberger’s favorite target.
“I’m just trying to get better every day, and I’m doing what I’ve been asked to do,” Miller said Wednesday. “And I’m listening to my body, so I’ll just progress that way.”
Five months removed from a gruesome hit that prematurely ended the best season of his career, Miller’s body is telling him to be encouraged. He’s already running and walked around the practice field in a T-shirt and black shorts with his right knee wrapped in tape and ice during the second day of organized team activities.
Niners’ Crabtree tears tendon
SANTA CLARA, Calif.
San Francisco 49ers leading wide receiver Michael Crabtree has had surgery to repair a torn right Achilles tendon.
Crabtree was operated on Wednesday, one day after suffering the injury during an organized team activity.
Coach Jim Harbaugh would not speculate when Crabtree might return to play, but the injury is not necessarily season ending.
The 25-year-old Crabtree, the team’s 10th overall pick in the 2009 draft out of Texas Tech, had career highs last season with 85 receptions for 1,105 yards and nine touchdowns for the NFC champion Niners, who lost 34-31 to the Baltimore Ravens in the Super Bowl.
