There’s an outside chance he could rehab in time to return later in the season but Fowler notes this will probably end his season.
Expect the Steelers to place Miller on injured reserve in the coming days.
Miller, 27, is a former second-round pick of the Bears back in 2018. He was in the final year of his four-year, $5,353,700 contract when the Bears traded him to the Texans to swap a seventh-round pick for a fifth-round pick.
Miller was owed a non-guaranteed base salary of $1,210,050 for the 2021 season when the Texans waived him in October. He later signed on to the Steelers’ practice squad and returned on a futures deal for 2022.
In 2021, Miller appeared in three games for the Texans and Steelers, catching six passes for 26 yards and a touchdown.
