Just heard John Clayton (NFL Live) say he twisted it in practice today and is questionable for Sunday?

Well, at this point, I guess that's better than doubtful.

Sorry, but I put about as much stock in reports from the Disney Channel, err, ESPN as I do PFT anymore. When I see a print article from the P-G then I'll fret about it. This is the same network that turns 100.4-degree fevers into 104-degree fevers and mild shoulder sprains into major separations, after all.

Willie Parker - RB - Steelers

Willie Parker aggravated his knee injury and did not practice Wednesday. His status for Week 7 is now up in the air.

Parker reportedly stepped in a hole at practice Monday as the Steelers came off their bye week. All signs before the aggravation pointed towards FWP playing against the Bengals after missing two games. Now Mewelde Moore may get the tasty matchup.

The last time he sprained it he was out 3 weeks - I expect at least that long now....if he didn't tear the ligament this time. I hope they are getting a MRI.

What a blunder - rushing your #1 RB from a knee injury.....stupid stupid stupid.

Now they have to go 5 wide.

Not worried about facing the Bungals without hiim.........but look who we play next week...and the next and the next and the next.

Get well sooner than later, Willie!

Well, you know of those infamous Pittsburgh Potholes, don't you? Well, there was a pothole inside, maybe???

Dammit. I was looking forward to seeing him run all over their D. This is dissapointing at the very least.

:laughing::laughing::laughing:

There are potholes everywhere here. The potholes birth more potholes on a daily basis!

This news does suck, but I have every confidence in MM facing the Bungles front line, IF the OL can do their part by opening up some holes for him to take off.

Get that knee well, Willie- we're going to need you healthy for the brutal second half of the season. :drink:

Not good, but if anything is aggravating him we can afford to keep him out one more week and hopefully be 100%

No big deal this week. Just means more Gary Russell on sunday.

Wonder if Willie will be ready for the Giants game?

He should have just been rested through the bye week anyway...why bring him back to face the hapless Bungles?

He got injured because of a hole in the practice field!?! Where the hell are they practicing at? Bahgdad High?

Smell test failed!


maybe they read my comments on the Sweed thread and decided to sit willie to rest him a bit more! :chuckle:

rly can't beleive someone actually said we had to go 5 wide now.. :doh:

if willie doesn't play this week it's fine.. we are playing an 0-7 bengals team.. and MM ran good against the jags...

They use Grass Turf on the indoor field. That stuff can kill your feet.

Moore and Russell played well against the Jags . . . if we lose to Cincy it won't be because FWP was hurt. Keep him out this week if we have to.

A hole in the practice turf? :doh: Dang, I mean like seriously...

I'm not worried about our running game against the Bungles, but if he's out for an extended period of time, it will hurt out next stretch of games.

I'm about the furthest thing from a Willie-hater, but I have to ask the question. Are the wheels really truly falling off?

Hopefully he gets his knee healed up nice and good before he plays. Nothing worse than a runningback with bad knees.

Id rather rest him and let Gary and Meweldee run this week. But you do wanna see him get reps to be ready for that nasty stretch we have coming up.

The way Moore is playing, Parker should sit out until he is 100%.

That Bastard! That's why I'm voting Obama this time. He's promising free, world class quality government turf for all divots. So we don't even have to pay for it! :thumbsup:
