Steelers RB Rashard Mendenhall (achilles, out) and Isaac Redman (ankle, out) missed practice all week and are out for Week 7. 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.
