    They seem to have their own injury problems these days.

    PITTSBURGH -- Steelers running back Willie Parker is suffering from a shoulder subluxation but is expected to play Sunday against the San Diego Chargers, Pittsburgh coach Mike Tomlin said Tuesday.

    Parker suffered the injury -- in which the shoulder pops out of joint and immediately pops back in -- during a 23-6 victory over the Washington Redskins on Nov. 3. Parker is being fitted for a harness and will focus on strengthening the muscles around the shoulder to prevent re-injury.

    "We weren't able to let [Parker] go last week, but it's our intention to let him go and practice this week and play for us this weekend," Tomlin said.

    Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger continues to deal with his injured right shoulder and was described as "day to day." If Roethlisberger is able to practice this week, Tomlin said he likely will start Sunday.

    In other news, the Steelers signed veteran defensive back Fernando Bryant to add depth to an ailing secondary. The team released linebacker Donovan Woods to make room for the move.

    Steelers starting tight end Heath Miller (ankle) also is not expected to play this week, Tomlin said.

    Whether it's Big Ben or Leftwich at QB.

    I can only hope that Rivera is watching tape of EVERY Steeler game. Our D HAS TO GET STOPS. PERIOD.

    I would actually want Ben to play, he's injured. Leftwich looked god in the second half vs. the skins.

    Doesn't really matter, Mewelde Moore is a bruiser and will hurt us even if Parker doesn't play at all.

    If there was ever a team we could bring heat against, it's this team. The thing is, if we don't Roethlisberger or even Leftwich will tear us apart.

    Leftwich looked real good. He doesn't get intimidated.
