Kansas City Chiefs

WR Antonio Brown (ankle), T Marcus Gilbert (ankle), LB Stevenson Sylvester (hamstring), S Troy Polamalu (calf)

Emmaunel Sanders will draw the start in place of Brown opposite Mike Wallace and he’ll also return punts. Jerricho Cotchery, meanwhile, will be Pittsburgh’s No. 3 receiver. Isaac Redman will start for the Steelers after rushing for 147 yards and a touchdown against the Giants last week. Dwyer will be the backup.
Rashard Mendenhall & Isaac Redman both out for Week 7
Friday, October 19, 2012, 2:35pm
Jonathan Dwyer figures to get most of the work with both Mendenhall and Redman out. Baron Batch was active ahead of Dwyer last week due to his role on special teams. Batch and Chris Rainey should backup Dwyer, who is a sneaky start this week against the Bengals' suspect rush defense. He hasn't been very consistent this season, but he seems healthy and has a nice matchup this week. Consider him a low-end RB2.

At just 5'8", 180 pounds, Rainey is a bit undersized to be an every down back, but he possesses tremendous speed and a natural pass-catching ability. We recently took a look at Rainey' potential to provide a Darren Sproles/Dexter McCluster-type role for coordinator Todd Haley's offense and if he catches on to the nuances of the pro game quickly, Rainey could be the perfect candidate to provide an explosive punch to Pittsburgh's ground game.
