Steelers TE Heath Miller says 'there's a chance' he can play entire season

Steelers tight end Heath Miller spoke to the media on Wednesday for the first time since tearing three ligaments in his right knee in Week 16 last season. During the press conference, Miller said he is running but not at full speed. Miller also said "there's a chance" that he can play by Week 1, but it's a little too early to draw conclusions.
"It's a long time before training camp, so that's a long time to make gains positively or maybe even for something to happen negatively," Miller said. "So, I'm just taking one day at a time, and I hope to get better every day."

Fantasy Analysis:

Miller is 30 years old and will turn 31 in October. Even without this injury, he should be heading into his NFL twilight years. But with this major knee injury, he faces long odds of reaching his previous numbers. He was unexpectedly solid last season, but even among a relatively weak tight end class, he is nothing more than an uninspiring TE2 this season. Matt Spaeth, David Paulson and David Johnson are the other tight ends on the Steelers' roster, so ... yeah, nothing much to like here.
