I wonder how many games duce will last this season before he's injured again... Oh well, as long as he's there when it counts I won't complain!

Duce is very injury prone, but we can't think like that! Lets hope everyone stays healthy to make it sb40!

Yeah, you're right. I just have a hard time staying positive when it comes to Duce. I will try to get better.

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Duce Staley has been upgraded from questionable to probable after practicing all week, and is expected to play Sunday against the New England Patriots.

Staley has not played since the Steelers' 41-27 loss to New England in the AFC championship game in January. He practiced only the first day of training camp before needing knee surgery Aug. 8, and practiced little until last week.

Staley will back up Willie Parker, a third-team running back a year ago who is second in the NFL in rushing with 272 yards in two games.

Everything thinks little of duce because you haven't seen him play in a long time. Watching him run people over tomorrow will regain some confidence. I have a good feeling about him, and teamed with Willie they'll be dominating defenses.

I just hope that Duce's carries come from Verron's and not Willy's. oNLY other situation where I would be happy to see Duce runnin the ball is 4th quarter mop up duty. Nothing against Duce but every carry taken off of Willie may have been a 50 yard gain.
