Neither do I, but I would like to see him get in a few series before the preseason is over. If you go by what FSN Pittsburgh has to say, he should be back practicing by next week.

One article said his injury typically takes 10-14 days to heal so he has a few days left. I agree that there is no sense in rushing him back.

Still three more pre-season games after this for Willie to get some reps before the season starts....No need to rush the guy.....

It is possible to make sure Parker is healthy (not rush him back), get him some reps in preseason and still get a good look at our other backs. It's not as if Parker would play the whole game, let alone a whole quarter during a preseason game.

While I have seen what Willie is capable of doing on field in the regular season, it would be nice to get see him in there a few times before the season begins. Sitting him out during the whole preseason (while healthy) is not exactly the smartest decision IMO.

I hope not, i don't think they need to rush anything and make his injury worse.

I agree. However, I would like him to sit this and next game... just to allow him to fully heal. That still gives him two games to get some reps and hits in.

Pro Bowl running back Willie Parker practiced for the first time in nearly 10 days and said his knee is feeling fine, but he will not play in the preseason game against the Green Bay Packers tomorrow night and said he might not play next week in Washington, either.

Parker participated in light drills yesterday afternoon, his first work since coach Mike Tomlin surprisingly held him out of practice July 31. But Parker said he is in no hurry to get back on the field because he wants to be sure he does not aggravate the injury.

"I'm all right; I'm not concerned," Parker said. "I overworked [the knee] a little bit, went too hard in the offseason, and, when I got here, my body slowed down because I went so hard. I was overdoing it on the practice field and I needed some rest, some preseason time, to get better."

Tomlin said Parker will be replaced as the starter for the second consecutive game by Najeh Davenport. Neither Tomlin nor Parker has described the exact nature of the knee injury.

"I'm in no rush to play the next game, either," said Parker, referring to the Aug. 18 contest against the Redskins in Landover, Md. "I feel real good, but I'm not going to be stupid or re-aggravate it."

Sounds good to me.

It's all a matter of patience people. FWP will be back in action. Let him heal. Even if he does play, he probably would get no more than a series.

This means more reps for the backups and more opportunities for Davis and Russell to build on their HOF game performances.
