Parker, Hampton out for Steelers

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin just announced during his Tuesday press conference that RB Willie Parker (sprained knee), NT Casey Hampton (groin) and DE Brett Keisel (calf) will be out for Monday night’s game against the Ravens.

Rookie RB Rashard Mendenhall is expected to make his first NFL start in place of Parker, while veteran Chris Hoke will replace Hampton.

Tomlin said that QB Ben Roethlisberger, who has been slowed by a sore shoulder and left last week’s game with a hand injury, wouldn’t be limited in practice this week.
