View Full Version : Townsend back in the lineup?

I read that Townsend's heel is healed enough for him to start again.

Who would we want back there? B-MAC is doing phenomenally thus far. Is it B-Mac's speed vs. Townsend's experience?

With the west coast O of the Iggles, I'd prefer to have BOTH back there. We are going to see a lot of BMac and a lot of the nickel package w/Timmons.

Townsend didn't practice yesterday so I would doubt he starts.

I bet he plays but doesn't start, unless he doesn't practice today.

I hope he starts. The Eagles love to throw all over, and Townsend is an asset. I'd like to have both in the game, and if healthy, I'd go with Deshea.

Looks like Townsend is out after all.

Pittsburgh Steelers

Cornerback Deshea Townsend missed Friday's practice and was ruled out of Sunday's game against the Eagles. He will miss his second consecutive game. Bryant McFadden will start for him. Defensive end Brett Keisel (calf) and linebacker Donovan Woods (hamstring) are out. Linebacker James Farrior (back), guard Chris Kemoeatu (ankle) and nose tackle Casey Hampton (groin) are fine. They will play. Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger had a good week of throwing despite a sprain to the AC joint in his right shoulder.
