The Steelers have many problems on offense, but they’re getting a key piece back tonight.

Tight end Heath Miller is active for tonight’s game against the Bears, his first action since tearing his ACL late last year. They’ve kept four tight end up for the game, which points to them trying to keep him fresh, but getting him back will be significant.

The Steelers won’t have rookie running back Le’Veon Bell, as he was on their inactive list, along with quarterback Landry Jones, receiver Derek Moye, cornerbacks Cortez Allen and Isaiah Green, center Cody Wallace and defensive tackle Hebron Fangupo.

There were no surprises forthe Bears, with the following players inactive: Wide receiver Marquess Wilson, cornerback C.J. Wilson, running back Michael Ford, guard James Brown, offensive tackle Jonathan Scott, defensive end David Bass and defensive tackle Zach Minter.

    Best TE in the league. Our offense is not the same without him. Expect a laugher against Cubs.

    Let’s hope it makes a difference cuz right now six rings are weighing them down to the basement of the AFC North.

    It’s good that Heath is back, but it doesn’t appear the offense plans to keep the ball long enough for it to matter.

    I doubt it is the plan.
