Default Fast Willie and M.Moore OUT?

Steelers | Mendenhall likely to see a lot of action in preseason opener

Wed, 12 Aug 2009 07:27:52 -0700

CBSSports.com reports Pittsburgh Steelers RBs Willie Parker (back) and Mewelde Moore (hamstring) are unlikely to play in the team's preseason opener. As a result, RB Rashard Mendenhall is expected to see plenty of action.

It's not like they were going to play much anyway. It's the first preseason game.

We're going to see the first team for a drive and it's to the bench with them.

This is Mendenhalls chance to shine if he gets most of the reps

Moore and Willie were probably combined gonna play 15 plays total as it was gonna be Mendenhalls chance to get playing time and then Vincent Redman and Summers.

I thought Mendenhall shined a lot last year before that bone crushing hit with R. Lewis.

The starters will see no more then 1-2 series Tomorrow. I'd rather see them playing for a long period of time in the third preseason game if at all.

I want to see Rashard and "DA TANK" . Frank needs to impress to make the team. I think we need a guy like him in short yardage.I'm still wondering why we kept Davis over Russell.

I was pretty impressed from what I saw of Mendy last season (though short-lived) and I'm anxious to see him bring it.

If redman plays well, redman and summers stay. vincent and davis are the odd men out.
