Parker and Big Ben Miss Practice

As the Steelers get ready for Sunday’s showdown with the Colts at home, a couple of their big name offensive players sat out practice today. Running back Willie Parker and QB Ben Roethlisberger both didn’t take part in the session. Parker has a shoulder injury from Monday night’s game vs the Skins, and Big Ben sat out to rest his shoulder, which was hurt in the game as well. It could mean that Mewelde Moore could be the starting RB, and Byron Leftwhich could be lining up under center.
