Panthers Wrap Up Preseason Tonight Against Steelers

Charlotte - Tonight's Steelers-Panthers game will be
best remembered for which backups play well enough to survive
Saturday's cutdown from 75 players to 53.
It's been a hectic week for the Steelers, with only three days
to prepare after Sunday's 27-13 win over Philadelphia.
Steelers coach Mike Tomlin says the starters will play about a
quarter against the Panthers. Ben Roethlisberger might play less
after throwing for 247 yards and an interception against the
Eagles.
Receiver Hines Ward may sit out as he has a broken nose.
Willie Parker should get some work. Parker has only 14 carries
in the preseason after missing two weeks of camp with a sore knee.
It will also be the final chance to audition for roles on the
starting offensive line.
Game time is set for 8pm at Bank of America Stadium.
