The Steelers could need running back

Running backs
[URL="http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/4652/rashard-mendenhall"]Rashard Mendenhall[/URL] and [URL="http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/5544/isaac-redman"]Isaac Redman[/URL] missed practice Wednesday. Mendenhall has an Achilles tendon injury; Redman is nursing an ankle problem.

Dwyer, who didn’t practice Wednesday for reasons unrelated to injury (), rushed for 122 yards in a win over the Bengals.

Also missing practice for the Steelers on Wednesday were tackle
[URL="http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/6617/marcus-gilbert"]Marcus Gilbert[/URL] (ankle), safety [URL="http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/681/troy-polamalu"]Troy Polamalu[/URL] (calf), and linebacker [URL="http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/5701/jason-worilds"]Jason Worilds[/URL] (illness).

Full participants were Will Allen (ankle), linebacker
[URL="http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/6668/chris-carter"]Chris Carter[/URL] (hamstring), and center [URL="http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/5706/maurkice-pouncey"]Maurkice Pouncey[/URL] (knee). Linebacker [URL="http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/3954/brandon-johnson"]Brandon Johnson[/URL] (hamstring), linebacker [URL="http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/7958/adrian-robinson"]Adrian Robinson[/URL] (concussion), and kicker [URL="http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/3529/shaun-suisham"]Shaun Suisham[/URL] (left ankle) practiced on a limited basis.

Pouncey, who missed Sunday night’s win, is expected to be available for the Week Eight game against the Redskins. Polamalu, who has appeared in only two games this season, is expected to miss the game.

WTH happened to Dwyer? Is he just to lazy to practice or what? This is insane this season.
