Parker Sits w/ Back Spasms; Woodley Sits w/ Swelling in Knee

Steelers starting RB Willie Parker just didn’t feel right waking up Saturday night, but should be okay. Parker missed Saturday’s session with back spasms, although the team says it should not be a major problem.

Coach Mike Tomlin said Parker woke up with his back not feeling right. The Steelers had their first and only night practice Friday night. “It shouldn’t be a big, major deal, but we wanted to exercise caution,” Tomlin said.

Also missing from Saturday’s session was starting outside linebacker LaMarr Woodley, who sat out his third consecutive day of practice due to swelling in his right knee, but he expects to return Sunday.
