    Geez it never ends. Anybody know how to pour and hand out water? I fear we will be down a water boy by next week.

    The Latest Steelers Buzz; Essex to start?
    11:25am - Friday, October 31st, 2008 by depaoli
    Chris Kemoeatu did not practice today and has a noticable limp. I'm hearing he has an ankle injury but there has been no word from Steelers headquarters. The Steelers are concerned and we may see Trai Essex start Monday night.
    Marvel Smith missed practice today and as I stated yesterday don't count on him playing. There is more to his back spasms than the coaching staff is saying.Troy Polamalu was not on the practice field but he is not injured.
    The good news for the Steelers is Casey Hampton and LaMarr Woodley are practicing. Both players have been nursing injuries. Woodley with a calf injury and Hampton with turf toe.
    The Steelers coaching staff has talked about using Willie Parker and Mewelde Moore as a one-two-punch this week. I'm hearing 12-15 touches for Parker.
    Aaron Smith did miss practice yesterday and has been in and out for the past two weeks due to personal reasons but the Steelers do expect him to play
    Santonio Holmes has had a very good week of practice. Seems motivated for a big game Monday night.
    Punter Mitch Berger did punt today but there is still no word whether he will play. The Steelers added punter Ricky Schmitt to the practice squad this week.

    I almost don't want to jinx us by saying this, but...

    With all the injuries, its absolutely MIRACULOUS that Ben is healthy. The guy is definitely blessed.

    Don't worry, I'm currently knocking on wood and touching iron. FYI, touching iron is the Italian equivalent of knocking on wood.

    If you don't stop, you'll go blind. Not to mention you'll need a new keyboard.

    Re: Monday keeps getting more interesting.

    Okay, well it potentially can get worse i suppose:

    Troy Polamalu's wife is close to delivering a baby boy and he wouldn't commit Thursday to playing on Monday night if she goes into labor.

    "I don’t know. We’ll see what happens," Polamalu said. "She's due soon...any time now." Steelers coach Mike Tomlin typically makes exceptions for players tending to personal matters and is supportive. However, the odds that Polamalu's wife has the baby just before game time probably aren't all that great. The couple is planning to name their son Paisios.

    If Tyrone Carter and Anthony Smith are your starting safeties, we better start praying now that Santana Moss can't play either (he did miss Wednesday and Thursday practice, as did Portis)

    This is getting to be a game of Injury Chicken. Which team will forfeit first due to lack of players...
