Default Will Willie play on Saturday?

Willie as in Willie Parker. Just wanted to know if Willie Parker is playing Saturday night against the Packers. I really hope he does, I really like Parker and want to see him play.

If he's not playing Saturday, well will he come back?

Thanks!

I wouldn't rush him back anyway. If we CAN get him back though for no later then the Washington Game, I feel that would help the Steelers A LOT considering he would have 3 games under his belt going into Cleveland.

hey guys,

unfortunately no, willie will not be playin on sat vs the packers. #1 i talked to him on the phone today (we are friends) and he said he'll be back in practice on monday, #2 Tomlin said that he is on day 11 of his 14 day break, which would place him to come back on monday. i told him that we cant afford to lose our Weapon X this season, so he has to take it easy and just take care of himself. Preseasons not that important, but I too would like to see him in this new offense. I suspect big things from ma boy willie this year. Look for him to be used like LT. Catchin the ball all over the field, and ofcourse running by everyone. He is fine, knee is good, but tomlin and the coaching staff is being smart with not only him, all the other guys who r "injured". We were set w/ 5 preseason games this year, and a camp that started early, we dont need to kill our gamebreakers before the season starts.

Patience friends....Fast Willie will be back in action soon enough....

:)

Cool Re: Will Willie play on Saturday?

No reason to bring FWP back in yet.

We really need to find out who are backups are going to be and the only way to do that is give them reps.

Hey all,

Just remember, we have 5 Preseason games.

Which means that in a regular year, we are just NOW going into our first game.

I have no problem with him missing two of the next four games. Give him time.

We already know Willie can run so if he has to sit out the entire preseason that's fine with me.

I believe that's what LT of the Chargers does every year anyways. He doesn't play in the preseason. We need Willie fast, healthy and ready to go when we open up against the clowns.
