Bus garaged for two weeks

Official word out of Pittsburgh is that Jerome Bettis will be out for at least two weeks with a calf injury. The Bus will not be available for the season opener against Tennessee but might be able to play after that.

So barring any more injuries (knock on wood), Willie Parker will start, Verron Haynes will be the third-down back, and rookie Noah Herron will fill in wherever needed. No word yet on whether Maurice Clarett will show up at Heinz Field holding a cardboard sign with “WILL WORK FOR FOOD” scrawled on it.
