PITTSBURGH (AP) -Willie Parker is back on the Pittsburgh Steelers' injury list.
Parker missed practice for the second day in a row Thursday because of a shoulder injury - not the sprained knee that kept him out of four games - and the running back's status for Sunday's game against Indianapolis is uncertain. The Steelers' final practice of the week is Friday.
Parker, who rushed for at least 1,200 yards in each of the last three seasons, returned from his knee injury layoff to rush for 71 yards and a touchdown in a 23-6 victory over the Redskins on Monday night. Parker hadn't played since hurting his knee Sept. 21 against Philadelphia.
Ben Roethlisberger, dealing with a slightly separated right shoulder and a left pinkie ligament injury, also didn't practice Thursday. The Steelers quarterback is optimistic about practicing Friday and playing against the Colts, although he sat out the second half of the Redskins game.
