Speedy Willie Parker gives Steelers a big rush

Willie Parker, a second-year free agent from North Carolina, continues to make plays the Pittsburgh Steelers are unaccustomed to getting from a running back. While lightning delayed the start of Saturday night's 17-3 preseason victory against the Miami Dolphins, it was Parker who provided some bolts of his own with his speed and big-play ability. He had runs of 37 and 21 yards in the first quarter, then caught a 20-yard swing pass. (Pittsburgh Post-Gazette)
