WR Braxton Miller ready to make plays

Braxton Miller will be active on Sunday at Minnesota.

The rookie wideout injured a hamstring in the Week 2 win over Kansas City and spent the past three weeks rehabbing.

"I'm excited to get back out there with my brothers and teammates and contribute and just get back on the field," Miller said. "It's been tough. I'm a competitor, so I always want to be out there with the team."

Even though he wasn't on the field during that span, Miller said he stayed sharp mentally.

 

"I still prepared like I was going to play on Sundays," Miller said. "I never can take a day off of looking at the playbook or paying attention in the film room."

The rookie was a limited participant on Wednesday, his first time on the field with his teammates since Week 2. He was a full participant Thursday and Friday, and Bill O'Brien was impressed with how Miller returned from the injury. 

"He did a nice job this week," the head coach said. "Anytime you miss time, it's tough especially on a rookie receiver, but I thought he came back and he was obviously paying attention while he was out." 

The 2016 third-round draft pick's goals are simple.

"Contributing at a high level," Miller said. "Just make plays whenever I'm capable of making them whenever the ball comes my way." 

So far in 2016, the former Ohio State Buckeye has a pair of catches for nine total yards.
