With a pair of tight ends still on the physically unable to perform list and veteran Matt Spaeth reportedly gone 8-10 weeks with a foot sprain, the Steelers are getting thin at tight end.
Heath Miller and David Johnson have not yet been cleared to practice, leaving the team with a gaggle of inexperience like Jamie McCoy, Nathan Overbay, Michael Palmer, David Paulson, and Peter Tuitupou.
Palmer arrived recently on waivers from the Seahawks, with John Rabe in turn being dropped.
At some point, the Steelers will need to look for veterans on whom they can rely until Miller, Johnson, and/or Spaeth return.
Anthony Becht! Get in shape!
