Must be the water.

Rainey's gonna be the only man left standing. And he's the one that took a shot that looked like it about killed him last week.

Redman is back this week and Dwyer is healthy again. I think Redman and Dwyer could carry the running game this season and predict they will run better than mendenhall in my opinion.

This article confirms Ford is out. Jerrod Johnson will not play. Max is in.

This article also pretty much gives an insight to the projected Steelers plans for 2012. I was going to paraphrase the article and comment but decided against it. Better to just read it and draw your own conclusions.

Well, 1 comment: Understandably, a 100% Redman should start this game, but I did think it should have suggested Dwyer would get some time with the 1st team also. He has earned that. But, we will see how things unfold Saturday.

Looks like Jerrod Johnson will be playing the entire game next week then. Any chance Ford makes the team? I would hope we can park the miniBus in the PS garage in case our RB corp get depleted again this year.

I swear it's like every RB on our team read Jerome Bettis' chapter about faking an injury to stay on the team...

Are players getting soft?

Just building the case to "stash" Ford on either IR or PS. If he isn't playing other teams can't assess him.

Tomlin said RB Jason Ford (hamstring), LB James Harrison (knee), Mendenhall (knee) and LB Stevenson Sylvester (knee) will not make the trip to Buffalo. NT Casey Hampton (knee/elbow) will travel with the team but is unlikely to play.

Tomlin said the first team will play at least the first half against the Bills and quarterback Jerrod Johnson will not play.

Disappointed about Jerod as an Aggie fan AND cause I think he has value. I guess Batch and Lefty sat out a game each already as well. But that's cause we know what they can do. Jerod needs snaps. Will be fun to watch him play most of the last game if that is the case, at least a half.

I suspect that will be the case. This weekend, Ben will likely play into the early portion of the 3rd quarter, with Lefty finishing up the 3rd, and Charlie taking the 4th. Next weekend, Ben might only get one series, and Jerrod Johnson should have at least the 2nd half to himself, I would imagine.

The Steelers have released running back Jason Ford, who was signed earlier in training camp.
