    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    Redman still has more yards from scrimmage and actually has scored a TD...

    Dwyer had a very good game against the Bengals and I would love to see more...but, I'm not going to pin my season hopes upon him...

    Isaac Redman back for Steelers, Rashard Mendenhall isn’t

    Things are coming into a bit more focus in terms of the health of the Steelers backfield heading into Sunday’s game against the Redskins.


    For starters, it looks like they’re going to be leaning heavily on Jonathan Dwyer again. Rashard Mendenhall missed practice again with the Achilles injury that forced him to miss last week’s game against the Bengals and his chances of getting well enough to play in Week Eight aren’t looking all that good. They didn’t miss him all that much — Dwyer had 122 yards and Chris Rainey scored a touchdown — so they’ll likely be giving Mendenhall all the time he needs to get well.


    The chances that Isaac Redman will be able to give Dwyer and Rainey a little help are looking a little better. Redman’s ankle felt well enough to allow him to be a limited participant in practice for the team on Thursday, an improvement from his bystander status on Wednesday and a step in the right direction in terms of his ultimate return to the field.


    If Redman does play, he’ll have center Maurkice Pouncey blocking for him. Pouncey was ruled in by Mike Tomlin earlier this week and there was no change in that status after a day of practice.


    “I feel really good,” Pouncey said
    , via the team website. “I came in this morning with not that much pain at all. I feel good today. It’s really, really positive. I am definitely playing this week.”


    The earliest we’re likely to get anything so definitive about the Steelers backs is Friday.

    It's looking like Dwyer

    It's looking like Jonathan Dwyer will get his second consecutive start this week against Washington as Rashard Mendenhall sat out practice again Thursday, while Isaac Redman was limited.

    That's not necessarily a bad thing.

    Frequent readers of this blog know that I've thought all along that Dwyer was a better all-around player than Redman - though I like Redman as well.

    And given Washington's shoddy defense, letting Mendenhall sit another week isn't a bad thing.

    @ I've had to laugh when I hear the topic of the Steelers having to sit either Redman or Dwyer once everyone's healthy.

    Were people not listening to what Mike Tomlin had to say about his special teams units on Tuesday.

    As Tomlin said, once everyone's healthy, there may be some special teams regulars on the bench if they continue to draw penalties.

    We know Baron Batch plays teams, so, in effect, he doesn't necessarily count as a running back. Same goes for Chris Rainey.

    The Steelers could keep all five running backs on their roster active on game day with no real problems.

    What does Leonard Pope really do, anyway? Same goes for DeMarcus Van Dyke if he continues to draw penalties.
