Parker OK with No. 2, not all the way back from toe

Pittsburgh Post Gazette - [Full Article]

Willie Parker won't argue with Tomlin's decision to give Rashard Mendenhall the brunt of the carries Sunday.

"He's the coach, he has to make a decision and live with it. He thinks that's the best for our offense right now and pretty much I have to prove him wrong. I'm cool with it."

Parker carried only seven times last Sunday after missing the previous two games with turf toe. Mendenhall has started the past three games and rushed for 304 yards and four touchdowns.

"I'm not all the way back," said Parker. "I'm not Willie Parker, I'm not myself right now."
