Pittsburgh Gazette: Willie Parker returned to start
yesterday. He and Mewelde Moore then split the duties at
HB. It worked well because the Steelers' 161 yards were the
most on the ground since they had 164 in the 2nd game at
CLE. Uncharacteristically, the Steelers had slipped to 24th
in the league on the rush. Parker carried 16 times and ran
for 87 yards. Moore ran 12 times for 67 yards. Parker
missed 5 full games and parts of two others this season
with a sprained MCL and shoulder injury. He left in the 3rd
quarter of their game Nov. 20 when his knee was hurt
again." I came out great and I feel good," Parker said. "I
am not where I need to be, but I feel a lot better. I never
thought I would be happy with something like [splitting
time at the position]. I think that is the perfect thing
for me right now. It's a good thing for the team, helping
this team out."
