The Steelers made no moves during their bye week. They did make one on Saturday before their game in Jacksonville when they released LB Patrick Bailey and signed NT Scott Paxson from their practice squad.
PLAYER PERSONNEL NOTES
--QB Ben Roethlisberger's game in Jacksonville was only the fifth time he's thrown for 300 yards in a regular-season game and his first in two seasons.
--LB James Harrison leads the AFC with 6.5 sacks, second in the NFL. He's two from tying his personal high from last season, when he made the Pro Bowl.
--K Jeff Reed, perfect on nine field-goal tries, needs three more to pass Roy Gerela as the team's second-most prolific field-goal kicker. He has 144.
--RB Willie Parker has the team's only three touchdowns rushing and they all came in the opening game.
--WR Hines Ward's 90 yards receiving in Jacksonville pushed him over 9,000 yards, the only receiver in Steelers history to hit that mark. He has 9,053.
--All but a minor one or two of the Steelers not on injured reserve should be ready to play Oct. 19 in Cincinnati. That means the return of starters RB Willie Parker (knee), FB Carey Davis (ankle), NT Casey Hampton (groin) and DE Brett Keisel (calf), as well as K Jeff Reed (calf) and DE Nick Eason (ankle). WR Dallas Baker (shoulder) may not be ready.
