Steelers tight end Heath Miller has sustained a concussion and is out for the rest of tonight's game against the Ravens.

Miller's head snapped back on a hit by Ravens linebacker Jameel McClain while trying to catch a Ben Roethlisberger pass late in the third quarter. No penalty was called on the play even though Miller looked like he might be in a defenseless position.

Carl Johnson, the head of NFL officials, said on NBC's broadcast of the game that McClain should have been penalized.

Miller stayed down for several minutes as a hush fell over the crowd at M&T Bank Stadium but he walked off the field under his own power.
