Isaac Redman said that, despite coming off his worst game as a professional, Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin still had confidence in him.
The veteran running back apparently was right.
Redman will start at running back Monday night against the Cincinnati Bengals despite fumbling twice and rushing for just nine yards on eight carries in Pittsburgh's 16-9 season-opening loss to the Tennessee Titans.
"Obviously he played a bad game," Tomlin said Tuesday at his weekly news conference. "He'll be given an opportunity to redeem himself."
Don't expect a lot from Redman behind an offensive line that isn't very good heading into Week 2. On top of that, it's a pretty tough matchup against a solid Bengals defense. Felix Jones and Jonathan Dwyer could also figure in on the workload.
