Pittsburgh, PA (Sports Network) - Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Heath Miller will need surgery to repair an anterior cruciate ligament and medial collateral ligament injury, the team announced Monday.
Miller also possibly injured his posterior cruciate ligament in Sunday's loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, which eliminated the Steelers from playoff contention.
Miller finished the season with 71 catches for a career-high 816 yards and eight touchdowns.
Additionally, running back Baron Batch suffered a fractured arm and has been placed on injured reserve.
