The Steelers wrapped up the post bye practice week, Friday, with WR Dallas Baker (shoulder), RB Carey Davis (ankle) and LB Keyaron Fox (hamstring) all being ruled out this week on the injury report with Baker being the only one to practice limited on Friday. RB Willie Parker (knee) and T Marvel Smith (back) both sat out again on Friday and are officially listed as doubtful on the injury report and both are very unlikely to suit up versus the Bengals. DT Casey Hampton (groin) was limited on Friday and is listed as questionable and likely will be a game time decision.
Literally, this dudes head is huge!!!!!!!!!!
On Thursday, Steelers WR Hines Ward (Not injury related) was back practicing fully after his customary Wednesday day off. NT Casey Hampton (Groin) was limited in practice participation on Thursday and WR Dallas Baker (Shoulder), RB Carey Davis (Ankle), LB Keyaron Fox (Hamstring), RB Willie Parker (Knee) and T Marvel Smith (Back) all sat out again on Thursday. Parker and Smith are looking more and more like they will be sidelined this week versus the Bengals.
The Steelers released defensive tackle Jordan Reffett from the practice squad and signed kick return specialist Jayson Foster. The 5-foot-7, 175-pound Foster starred at Georgia Southern and won the Walter Payton Award, which is given to the top player in Division I-AA, in 2007.
Steelers running back Willie Parker did not practice with the Steelers today because he re-aggravated his injured knee and his status is now uncertain against Cincinnati. Parker stepped in a hole in practice on Monday and aggravated his sprained medial collateral ligament in his left knee
Steelers WR Dallas Baker (Shoulder), RB Carey Davis (Ankle) and LB Keyaron Fox (Hamstring) as expected all sat out on Wednesday and have been ruled out this week versus the Bengals. NT Casey Hampton (Groin), RB Willie Parker (Knee) and T Marvel Smith (Back) also all sat out on Wednesday and all three are expected to be ready this week. WR Hines Ward (Not injury related) got his usual Wednesday practice off as well.
Look at that Pornstache Matt Jones has going. Nice mustache there, Matt!
