Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Zach Miller has been a player a lot of fans seem to think can make an impact on the Jaguars offense, Miller is a big body who is athletic and has a lot of speed for his size and has really soft hands. The big problem for Miller however is he just can't seem to stay on the football field. Miller missed the past few days of practice, but now it looks like Miller is endanger of even being available for Week 1 of the regular season.

Miller has played in just 19 games the past two seasons, missing all but four games in 2011 dealing with an injury. Luckily for the Jaguars they've had a couple of other tight ends show up in practice, including starting tight end Marcedes Lewis who seems to have rebounded from last year's disappointing season.
