Adam Shefter on Who Say - [Full Article]

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.

Fantasy Impact: 

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.
