Default Willie Parker not optimistic about playing Sunday, likely out

PITTSBURGH (AP)—Steelers running back Willie Parker isn’t optimistic about playing in Detroit.

An injured left big toe kept Parker out of the Steelers’ 38-28 victory over San Diego on Sunday and Rashard Mendenhall ran for 165 yards and two touchdowns in his place.

With Mendenhall pushing to replace him as the starter, Parker didn’t practice Wednesday because his toe still hasn’t healed.

“I’m a competitor and I want to compete and show the world what I’ve got but, at the same time, I’ve got to be smart about it,” said Parker, who ran for at least 1,200 yards every season from 2005-07. “Right now, I’m not where I need to be.”

When Parker last played in Detroit, his 75-yard touchdown run helped the Steelers beat Seattle 21-10 in the Super Bowl in February 2006.

No loss. Take your time Willie, Mendenhall should be able to handle the load.

Maybe, maybe not. If he doesn't play a lot, he isn't going to get a lot of interest, and wil probably sign a reduced salary to stay with the Steelers.

IMO, that is the best thing that can happen, instead of trying to bring someone else in here to learn the system.

Hmm. I don't know how I feel about this. On one hand, I'm happy, because I want to see if Mendenhall can have another great game. On the other hand, it's never good when a starter is hurt and can't play.

Anyway, looks like it's all mendy this week. Hope he tears it up.
