Maybe The Ravens Should Prepare To See Heath Miller As The Steelers Quarterback

Heath Miller almost filled in at quarterback for the Steelers on Monday nightThe Baltimore Ravens are prepping to face a Pittsburgh Steelers team without Ben Roethlisberger, but I imagine they probably aren’t thinking about seeing Heath Miller under center. Well, maybe they should.

Dave Bryan at SteelersDepot.com points out that after Roethlisberger left Monday night’s game (as first reported by Rick Reilly)  with a shoulder injury, Byron Leftwich nearly came out after landing awkwardly on his back on the his first throw of the game. Seemingly lifelong Steelers backup QB Charlie Batch was inactive, which would have meant that tight end Heath Miller would have had to come in as the team’s emergence quarterback.

Apparently, Miller played quarterback in high school and as a Senior was ranked number 15 in state by SuperPrep. He was recruited by the University of Virginia as a QB, but was moved to tight end during his redshirt freshman year.
