    Ah, this gets old folks, but here we go....

    Steelers still banged up in the backfield

    The Steelers could need running back
    [URL="http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/5709/jonathan-dwyer"]Jonathan Dwyer[/URL] to carry the load again on Sunday, against the Redskins.


    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 didnít 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 nightís 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.

    After his 122-yard game on Sunday, he had to take some time off to work out some commercial endorsements...

    My understanding is that Dwyer was out Wednesday for a gynecology appointment.

    Maybe it was a personal reason/
    Do you ever take a day off from work due to personal reasons?
    Overreact much?

    Pete, if I missed as much work as this guy does, I'd be unemployed PRONTO. I think he's a better back than Redman, but he's always banged up. So, no....I don't overreact TOO much. LOL

    For a guy trying to build his reputation on the team, I hope it was a very good reason. Being there, being reliable is a big part of that reputation. A football player only needs to set aside about 20 weeks a year to be at his job. He should be there unless there was a death or birth in the family.
