Tests on Steelers RB Isaac Redman revealed a hip injury that will not require surgery but will prevent him from playing Sunday vs. Colts. Redman could return to practice as early as next week.
Good news for Redman owners and potential owners. However, the Steeler RB situation got a little muddier now that Rashard Mendenhall is off the PUP list. Although Mendy is likely to miss most of September, according to reports, Redman owners could have a rental player at RB for a shorter time than they thought and hoped if Mendenhall returns after September. Mendy likely won't be rushed into lead-back carries, but it could mean a committee situation.
