The NFL’s leading rusher is out for the rest of the 2007 season.
ST. LOUIS, MO. — Willie Parker, the NFL’s leading rusher, had a fractured right fibula and is done for the season.
Parker’s injury occurred on his first carry of the game and there were unconfirmed reports that his foot got caught in the artificial turf at the Edward Jones Dome.
The fibula runs from the knee to the ankle and is the smaller of the two bones in the lower leg.
The Pro Bowl halfback gained one yard after taking a pitch from Ben Roethlisberger and running around to the right.
After Parker was tackled, he took himself out of the game and was carted off the field into the Steelers locker room.
Najeh Davenport had a good night in Parker’s place, but this is hardly good news for Pittsburgh. I don’t they’re as good as their record. I’m predicting an early exit from the playoffs in January.
