NFL: Update of the Walking Wounded

Justin ZuckerCorrespondent INovember 25, 2008

Willie Parker is questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Patriots with swelling in his previously injured knee. Mewelede Moore will once again spell Parker if needed.

Starting DE Brett Keisel will be out with a sprained MCL in his left knee. He could miss a few weeks.

CB Deshea Townsend is also out with a strained hamstring.

CB Bryant McFadden is listed as questionable. He has not played in one month due to a broken forearm. A McFadden return would go a long way in containing the Patriots passing attack.

LT Marvel Smith will also miss Sunday's game. As previously stated, I don't expect to see him in a Steelers uniform again.

The Steelers really need to begin STAYING healthy if they are going to survive this daunting four game stretch which includes the Patriots, Cowboys, Titans, and Ravens.
