According to Adam Schefter, Heath Miller suffered a torn ACL and MCL in Week 16 against the Bengals. The Steelers initially believed he avoided an ACL tear, but tests on Monday revealed the full extent of the damage.
Leonard Pope is next in line at tight end on Pittsburgh's depth chart.
Fantasy Impact: Depending on his recovery, Miller may miss the beginning of the 2013 season. Adrian Peterson suffered multiple tears in December last year, but he is also a freak athlete who recovered quicker than anyone expected.
Miller set career-highs in receiving yards and touchdowns after turning 30 this season. Now eliminated from playoff contention, the news just gets worse for the Steelers.
