Up to Four Starters Could Be Out for Giants Game

It’s expected to be a hard-hitting affair tomorrow when the Steelers tangle with the World Champion New York Giants at Hinez Field. While the Steelers remain a slight favorite, they will go into the matchup missing possibly as many as four starters.

For sure out for the game is left tackle Marvel Smith, who has not taken to the practice field in two weeks due to back spasms. Max Starks will play in his place. RB Willie Parker will likely miss the game due to his knee injury, and Mewelde Moore will again be the starter at RB unless Parker can make a quick recovery.

Aaron Smith is dealing with personal issues, and rumors have it is something to do with his family. Mike Tomlin says he is questionable for the contest, and if he’s not around, his play will for sure be missed. Santonio Holmes is another player that won’t be around, as he will miss the game due to his issue this past week with getting stopped by police with marijuana in his car. Nate Washington, who had a TD last week will play in his spot.

Matt Loede has been in the sports media for over 16 years, with experience covering the MLB, NBA, and NFL.

    I’d like to thanks our organization for putting a garbage offensive line out there! We’re great. I would highly respect any personnel player (other than an offensive lineman) to come out and say our offensive line sucks! The personal foul against Chris K, the holding on Colon (who sucks) the false start on Colon, When Starks didn’t even block Kiwanuka and, when Chris K got pushed to the ground by a guy who weighs at least 70 lbs. less than him, and I could go on and on. We had NY suck ass giants on the ropes in the 3rd and our o-line single handedly blew the game…Ben held the ball too long a bunch of times as well. And as soon as Arians stopped calling short stuff, our offense didn’t do shit! At what point do we protect the fucking quarterback and call the right plays????
