PITTSBURGH (AP)

Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Heath Miller will make his season debut Sunday night against the Chicago Bears.

Miller hasn't played since tearing ligaments in his right knee last December against Cincinnati. Miller returned to practice this week and the Steelers hope his presence will help them snap out of an 0-2 start.

Pittsburgh rookie RB Le'Veon Bell will miss his third straight game due to a sprained right foot. Starting CB Cortez Allen is also out with an ankle injury. WR Derek Moye, who has one of Pittsburgh's two touchdowns this season, is also inactive.

WR Marquess Wilson, CB CJ Wilson, RB Michael Ford, G James Brown, T Jonathan Scott, DE David Bass and DT Zach Minter are inactive for the unbeaten Bears (2-0).
