AP reports: Steelers WR Limas Sweed, a second-round draft pick in
April out of Texas, is expected to play in his first NFL regular-
season game Sunday in Cincinnati. Sweed dressed for only one of
Pittsburgh's first 5 games, and didn't play in any. With backup WR
Dallas Baker injured, Sweed finally fits into the Steelers'
rotation. His debut, weeks later than expected, was substantially
delayed as Sweed went through the adjustments all NFL rookies must
make. "He's come a long way," said Roethlisberger, who asked the
front office for a tall receiver at the end of last season. "It's
hard because you don't get a lot of work in practice with me
because I've got to work with the other guys (the starters). I'm
sure if he gets a chance, he'll do just great."
