Steelers Inside Slant

Willie Parker is a second-year pro who played little as an undrafted rookie in 2004 and entered training camp this year fourth on the Steelers' depth chart. He's a native of Clinton, N.C., who played at North Carolina but never did nail down a starting job with the Tar Heels. Now he needs just 63 yards in two games to become the first Steeler to rush for 1,000 yards since Jerome Bettis in 2001. (Steel City Sports)
