It has been reported that Marion Barber did not join his team on the trip to Pittsburgh for tomorrow’s game.
The hope that Barber would play after missing practice all week, has just been killed.
Rookie Tashard Choice, who was once the third string running back, will start against one of the toughest teams in the league in some of the harshest weather conditions.
It won’t be easy but Choice showed great potential on Thanksgiving Day. But then again, its one thing to rush against the Lions, and another to do it in Pittsburgh.
This will be the first game Marion Barber has missed in his career since he was a rookie in 2005.
