Parker plays, but Mendenhall gets starting nod

Pittsburgh Tribune Review - [Full Article]

In other Steelers news, Tomlin acknowledged that there has been a changing of the guard at running back — at least for now.

Tomlin said Rashard Mendenhall has passed Willie Parker on the depth chart.

Mendenhall has started the Steelers' last three games and rushed for 304 yards and four touchdowns. Parker returned last Sunday after missing two games because of turf toe. He rushed for 26 yards on seven carries in the Steelers' 27-14 win against the Browns.

"It's great to have Willie back," Tomlin said, "but Rashard has the hot hand if you will."

Tomlin said the Steelers are in relatively good shape from a health standpoint.
