JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) â€” Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Zach Miller is practicing for the first time since minicamp, returning to the field after missing summer workouts with a foot injury.
The team activated Miller from the physically unable to perform list Sunday. Miller ran routes in the morning session, but wasn't sure he would be available for the team's first full-pads practice Sunday night.
A former college quarterback at Nebraska-Omaha and a sixth-round pick in 2009, Miller caught 21 passes for 212 yards and two touchdowns as a rookie. He's expected to have a bigger role this fall, especially if he stays healthy.
Miller missed the first two games of 2009 because of a knee injury. He hurt his left foot early this summer and missed all of organized team activities.
