The Pittsburgh Steelers have waived running back Isaac Redman and promoted LB Kion Wilson from the practice squad.
Redman began training camp expecting to compete for the starting job but struggled to stay healthy.
He managed just 12 yards on 10 carries this season and saw his playing time decrease behind rookie Le’Veon Bell and veterans Felix Jones and Jonathan Dwyer.
Redman is the odd man out. He survived at first when the team cut Jonathan Dwyer after trading for Felix Jones after Le'Veon Bell hurt his foot. But with Bell back healthy the Steelers had one too many backs and this time it's Redman who gets released.
