Safety Ryan Clark won't play this week after injuring his shoulder in thte fourth quarter against Tennessee. He'll be the only starter who won't play, though.
Mike Tomlin said today that Tyrone Carter would start in Clark's place, but that Anthony Smith would see some time at free safety as well.
© James Harrison (hip pointer) and Ben Roethlisberger (ankle) will be limited at practice early in the week, but are expected to play.
© The Steelers finally gave up on getting Marvel Smith back this season and placed him on IR Tuesday.
To replace him on the active roster, the team signed Jason Capizzi to its roster. Capizzi was on the practice squad of the St. Louis Rams.
© Tomlin refused to address whether he stood behind offensive coordinator Bruce Arians and took offense at the question.
It was a poor time to ask about Arians. The team is 11-4 and readying for the playoffs, not 4-11.
