PITTSBURGH (AP) -Pittsburgh Steelers running back Willie Parker and linebacker LaMarr Woodley were inactive for Sunday's game against Indianapolis, the fifth time in six games Parker has not played.
Parker, a Pro Bowl running back the past two seasons, missed four games with a sprained knee, only to injure a shoulder during the Steelers' 23-6 victory over Washington on Monday night. Parker was replaced by Mewelde Moore, who averaged 101 yards in three starts when Parker was out.
Woodley, third in the AFC with 9 1/2 sacks coming into the weekend, injured a calf against the New York Giants on Oct. 26, but played against Washington. Woodley was replaced by Lawrence Timmons, Pittsburgh's first-round draft pick in 2007.
Also out for the Steelers was left tackle Marvel Smith, who missed a fourth consecutive game with back discomfort and was replaced by Max Starks.
Colts cornerback Kelvin Hayden was inactive for a fifth consecutive game, this time because of a hamstring injury. Hayden started the Colts' first four games but has not played since Oct. 5 against Houston.
