Ben Roethlisberger sat out practice again Thursday, but is targeting Friday as a day to possibly return.
Willie Parker sat out again with his shoulder injury, but like Roethlisberger, he is targeting Friday as a day to practice.
At this point, I would say that Heath Miller, Marvel Smith, Najeh Davenport and Bryant McFadden are the guys who will be out.
© There are several reports that the Steelers are interested in signing former Atlanta and Oakland cornerback DeAngelo Hall. Even though the Steelers could use some help at the position - particularly next season – I don't see it happening.
Hall has been a bit of a goofball during his career and, in my opinion, is overrated as a player. He's certainly not as good as he thinks he is.
He could possibly help the Steelers in the return game, however. Hall has done a little punt and kick returning in his career.
Perhaps bringing a me-first guy into this locker room is something the Steelers feel they could get away with because they have strong leadership.
