Dropping like flies. Let's hope it is not serious.

LATROBE, Pa. -- Second-round draft pick Limas Sweed and offensive lineman Jeremy Parquet couldn't finish the Pittsburgh Steelers' second practice Wednesday because of cramping.

Neither player is expected to miss any additional time.

Sweed, a wide receiver from Texas who will play a key role in the offense, was taken off the field on a cart late in the afternoon practice -- creating concerns he injured a hamstring or a groin. He caught a touchdown pass during a drill earlier in the practice.

"We took him off to protect him," coach Mike Tomlin said. "He's a guy who's run all day, who's run a bunch and had some opportunities and the body betrayed him a little bit."

Parquet is a fourth-year free agent lineman from Southern Mississippi.

The Steelers practiced twice in full pads on a humid day with temperatures in the mid-80s, something they do only a few days each camp. So their injury list was unusually long for only the fourth day of camp.

Also sitting out were inside linebacker James Farrior (groin), running back Mewelde Moore (undisclosed illness), offensive tackle Marvel Smith (groin) and punter Daniel Sepulveda (knee). Sepulveda's season-ending right knee surgery to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament is scheduled for Aug. 6.
