Steelers won't name Week 11 starter

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette - [Full Article]

Steelers HC Mike Tomlin said he is unsure who will start at halfback Sunday and how he will use Rashard Mendenhall, Jonathan Dwyer and, if he's healthy, Isaac Redman. The three rotated early Sunday before Redman's injury in the first half, and the other two then split the carries.

Said Tomlin: "My preference would be to have a healthy, solidified featured runner, but I don't always get what I want in this business, obviously, for a variety of reasons. All of those guys have been nicked in some form or fashion. We've dealt with it to the best of our abilities. They've done a nice job of being productive when given an opportunity, but the circumstances themselves have created what we've done with the running backs at this point."

Fantasy Impact: 

Dwyer was more productive (15 touches, 81 yards) than Mendenhall was (14 touches, 50 yards) in his first game back. Both players are reasonable flex plays if Redman is out.
