Steelers RB Rashard Mendenhall (achilles, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 8. Jonathan Dwyer (not injury related, probable) took full practice reps again Friday and is probable. Dwyer is expected to get the start with Mendenhall out, with Isaac Redman rotating in on third downs. Redman (ankle, questionable) took limited practice reps again Friday and is questionable. Consider Dwyer a mid- to low-end RB2 this week against the Giants. He ran hard last week.
