No idea.
    A real Steelers RB would do it if they had to.

    Based on...............?????????? Are you suggesting Jack Lambert wasn't tough since a turf toe made him retire?

    This just in: He has been hurt every week.

    Also, by week 2 he is SPLITTING carries ALREADY with JD, so he has less chance to get injured. The prognostications about IR being on IR was based on him being the clear #1 back, which he already is NOT. They are splitting carries, right down the middle.

    Do you always make things up that have no relation to what was said?

    So much for Dwyer being the savior of the run game. Time to move on to the next back on the roster.... plug and play, that's the new motto.

    I completely agree. I mean, why isn't Redman stopping the opposing DL from breaking through into the backfield repeatedly? But who cares? Let's just look at the stat sheet and blame the RB!

    Try to follow along if you can. The assertion was made that "a real running back would still play with turf toe." That is an assertion that is straight forward and simple. Hence, if one believes the above, then one would also, likely and logically, think Lambert wasn't a "real LB" since he retired from the same injury. If you apply basic logic, you will "get it."

    Here are the facts on the injury. Please feel free to learn. Thank you.
