Willie Parker practiced today and looked good running around. Parker appears to be ready to go this week against the Redskins.
Of course we thought that before as well, only to have him suffer setbacks with his sprained knee.
Today's practice was indoors thanks to snow in Pittsburgh, so there's less of a chance he'll tweak the knee again.
© Hines Ward, Deshea Townsend, Marvel Smith, Casey Hampton, Ryan Clark, Keyaron Fox and Ben Roethlisberger sat out practice today.
Roethlisberger said he expects to practice Thursday.
Ward, Townsend and possibly Hampton will as wel.
© Clark really wants to play this week and looks good moving around. Of course he's not nailing anyone with his injured shoulder right now, either, so that makes a difference.
© Mitch Berger said the team will make a decision Friday on his status. Clark said the same.
