Steelers Player Notes

RB Duce Staley, whose ankle was injured slightly in the last game against Dallas and did not practice last week, did practice on Monday.

LB Kendrell Bell, who has not played since the first exhibition game, practiced for the first time this regular season on Monday. He had hernia surgery.

CB Willie Williams will make only his third start in the past three years when he opens on the left side for injured Chad Scott Sunday.

CB Ike Taylor will move back into the dime defense after being demoted early on. His reemergence comes out of necessity because of injuries to CB Chad Scott and S Mike Logan.

QB Ben Roethlisberger has a bruised knee from the team's last game in Dallas Oct. 17, but practiced on Monday and showed no ill effects from it.
