Video: Miller talks about returning to practice

The practice field was as full of Seahawks today as it has been at any time since training camp began, with a handful of players returning to practice.

Among those was starting tight end Zach Miller, who said he has overcome a nagging foot injury that had him sidelined since mini-camp in June.

“My foot was just bothering for me for a while, but it finally got right and luckily, the training staff here are smart enough to keep me off of it and give it enough time to heal,” he said. “Now it feels real good.”

Miller said the injury was not related to a foot injury he suffered in the playoffs against Atlanta, though he didn’t specify the details of the new injury.

“It was a different injury,” he said. “The plantar fasciitis is done with now. What happened can come from that. … (the injury was a) one-time thing and once it heals, it’s supposed to heal stronger. So I don’t expect any issues with it for the rest of the year or the rest of my career.”

Coach Pete Carroll has already said Miller probably won’t play Friday against Green Bay, and Miller said that is okay with him.

“I want to play but I want to be smart too,” he said. “I know the games that count are the ones that I need to be there for. If I’m healthy for those, that’s what I care about.Luckily I’ve been into the system now. This is my third time. Hearing all the play calls, Coach [Darrell] Bevell, Coach [Tom] Cable, all of the stuff is a lot similar. We added some stuff and that’s the stuff I kind of get caught up on. But for the most part, I know what to do in this offense.”

Here’s some video of Miller’s post-practice session with the media:
