Thumbs up Joey will start on sunday...

elers' Porter to start despite sitting out preseason

Associated Press

PITTSBURGH - Pro Bowl linebacker Joey Porter will start the Pittsburgh Steelers' opener Sunday against Tennessee despite sitting out the four preseason games and most of training camp following knee surgery.

Because Porter missed so much of camp, coach Bill Cowher plans to give Porter some series off so backup James Harrison can play. Porter resumed practicing Monday for the first time since the opening days of camp.

"He's been looking pretty good the last couple of days," Cowher said. "He's not ready to play a whole game and James will certainly spell him at times."

Running back Duce Staley, who also had knee surgery during the first week of camp, was downgraded from questionable to doubtful. Staley hasn't taken part in a full practice since the first day of camp.

Jerome Bettis (calf) was ruled out earlier in the week, which means the Steelers are all but certain to be without their top two running backs. Willie Porter, a former college backup at North Carolina, will make his first career start.

Harrison (hamstring) and cornerback Willie Williams (groin) were added to the injury list. Both are listed as probable.

James Harrison is listed as probable, and cowher said that even though porter will start, Harrison will see alot of playing time too since Joey isnt ready for a full 60 minutes yet.

I just hope he isnt rushing to come back to early.

Playing them this soon will be a huge mistake. 16 games to the playoffs, easy Bill, easy. If injuries start putting holes in our starting line up we will never get things rolling.

Cowher is pretty good with determining if some one is ready to come back or if they need more time to rest. If he puts him in he'll probably only play part of the game, i'm just glad to see him back.

just like black-n-gold said "Cowher is pretty good with determining if some one is ready to come back or if they need more time to rest" that's the reason i'm not worried about joey porter coming back this soon. i'm glad he's back and i can't wait for sunday.
