Short week, short notes.
Bryant McFadden is practicing again this week, but the team is waiting until the New England game to bring him back.
That's probably a smart move since it gives his broken forearm another 10 days to heal and the Steelers need him for the long run.
© Heath Miller could be back this week, which would be good news for an offense that's struggled to score without him.
© Marvel Smith continues to be out and Mike Tomlin said surgery hasn't been decided upon - yet - for his injured back.
© For the first time in weeks, the team came out of a game with no new injuries. That's a good thing considering they'll have a mini-bye after Thursday's game with 10 days off before they head to New England.
© Willie Parker and Gary Russell could share short-yardage carries.
