The Post-Gazette is reporting Willie Parker will miss the Colts game due to a shoulder injury sustained during the Redskins game.
Willie Parker's return to the starting lineup didn't last very long. After finally returning from a four-game absence to play in Monday night's victory against the Washington Redskins, the two-time Pro Bowl running back has a new injury -- an ailing shoulder -- and will not play against the Indianapolis Colts.
Parker injured his shoulder sometime in the third quarter against the Redskins -- "I'm not sure how," he said -- but still finished the game. His shoulder did not begin aching until the next day, and he has not practiced this week. Parker finished with 70 yards on 21 carries in his first game back from a sprained ligament in his left knee. He is expected to miss only one game and will be replaced by Mewelde Moore.
