Parker and Polamalu Both Go Through Full Practice

While the news of losing DE Aaron Smith set the Steelers back today, the team did get some good news on the practice field as a couple of starters returned.

Back on the field were running back Willie Parker and safety Troy Polamalu. Both were listed on the official injury report as “Full Participation in Practice.” If both practice tomorrow without any setbacks, it’s almost a given that they will play vs the Browns Sunday at Heinz Field.

Those that did not practice today included:

LB James Farrior (elbow)
OG Trai Essex (ankle)
LB Andre Frazier (thigh)
DE Travis Kirschke (back)
WR Hines Ward (not injury releated)

No players had “limited” participation in practice.

    Troy on the field will eliminate the passing woes, right? That excuse will be null and void now. The loss of Aaron Smith is BIG. Maybe we dont see it this week, but what about A.P coming to town next week? Lets see what Ziggy brings to the field. I expect he and Kirschke to get the most playing time. I say let Mendy start and carry and then use a healthy Parker as the change-up.

    Losing Smith definitely hurts, but atleast Ziggy gets a chance to get used to the pace of the game even if its against the Browns.
