A few notes on the injury front.
The following players missed practice yesterday:
Marvel Smith (back spasms) - get ready Max and Trei
LaMarr Woodley (calf) - uh oh.
Casey Hampton (toe) - something tells me Big Snack aint missing a game because of his toe.
Ben Roethlisberger (shoulder) - more here than we thought? Including last Sunday?
Keyaron Fox (hamstring)
Hines Ward & Deshea Townsend (day off)
We also signed some punter to the practice squad - Rocky Schmitt. In case Mitch Berger can't go. I always wondered if guys like that are legitimately psyched about 'getting a call up'. If Berger plays, he's gone. He needs to beg for that 40 year old hamstring to stay tight as a drum. Anyhow, for his valiant efforts last Sunday I''m pulling for Mitch, I just hope we don't botch this one and keep him active if he's borderline. We may need a sturdy leg in the punting game next Monday, even if we were to win.
One note to end: I know we have some mathmaticians in the group. Care to inform us know what the odds are of losing both your punter and your long snapper in one game? I dunno, perhaps just check how many games a punter or some long snapper that are long tenured have missed in their careers. I'm curious though.
