Cornerback Deshea Townsend did not practice for the third day in a row and is not expected to play in Sunday night's game in Cleveland, forcing Bryant McFadden to start for the first time since the final game of the 2006 season.
Townsend (heel contusion) has been listed as doubtful on the team's official injury report, meaning there is a 75 percent chance he won't play.
Also, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger went through a full workout for the first time this week and is listed as probable. Roethlisberger has a sore right shoulder that has limited his preparation.http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/08256/911718-66.stm
