http://www.steelers.com/article/113346/Running back Willie Parker was not at practice on Monday, sent home with an illness.
“He was running a fever so we sent him to the docs,” said Tomlin. “We didn’t want him to deliver anything to anybody else. I anticipate him being fine.”
Also missing practice were linebacker Lawrence Timmons (ankle) and defensive end Travis Kirschke (calf), who were both injured against the Minnesota Vikings.
“Both of those guys are questionable here at this point,” said Tomlin. “Again it’s the early part of the week. There is a little bit more optimism in regards to Lawrence than Travis at this point. We’ll let it play out as we always do.”
