Default Casey Hampton tries at fullback...for a day

Linebacker Lawrence Timmons (groin), tight end Matt Spaeth (shoulder) and linebacker James Harrison (ribs) didn't practice on Sunday afternoon. Wide receiver Santonio Holmes was back to full-time work (football pants) after returning to the field in a partial capacity (shorts) on Saturday.

? Nose tackle Casey Hampton got a crack at becoming a 325-pound fullback in the practice-concluding goal-line drill and was cracked by linebacker Clint Kriewaldt while leading on a carry by running back Najeh Davenport that went nowhere.

"Clint blew his (behind) up," linebacker James Farrior said. "He didn't rock me," Hampton said of Kriewaldt. "He did his job, though."

He did it well enough to make fullback a one-and-done position for Hampton.

"I'm probably gonna retire after that one," Hampton said. "I've been begging to do it, but I don't think I want to anymore."

? Davenport and Verron Haynes remain the leading candidates to emerge as the Steelers' third-down back, but Willie Parker would like a shot at remaining on the field for all three downs. Parker distinguished himself in another one-on-one blocking drill yesterday, "backs on defensive backs," by stuffing safety Tyrone Carter and pancaking cornerback Ike Taylor, all under the watchful eye of coach Mike Tomlin.

? "The offense pounds us one day, and the next day we come back against them. It's been really good. I think the offensive line's doing a great job, and we're trying to do our thing on the defensive line. It's been back and forth all camp."
- Defensive end Brett Keisel on which unit is getting the better of the other in practice.
Digits

1 - First-team offensive line combinations used so far in camp (left to right, Marvel Smith, Alan Faneca, Chukky Okobi, Kendall Simmons and Max Starks). 15 Successful field goals from formation by Jeff Reed (in 15 attempts, with a long of 48 yards).

Stick a picture of the QB holding a snack pack behind the endzone. Nothing will stop him!

Hampton would be a big fullback at 325 but it sounds like he don't wont none of it.
