Pittsburgh Steeler running back Isaac Redman is set for an MRI on his injured groin.
This is not what the Steelers needed to hear right now. The running back corps is already suffering with injuries to starter Rashard Mendenhall , Jonathon Dwyer, and John Clay. Redman was slated in as the starter for a team that traditionally likes to run the ball. He started the last 2 games last year and played well and had some sleeper appeal this season. Isaac hasn't made practice since last Thursday when he rushed for 14 yards on 5 carries against Philadelphia. This leaves rookie 5th round pick Chris Rainey from Florida and Baron Batch as the only healthy running backs on the roster. Do they bring in a free agent?? Only time will tell. If the injury is true, Redman should be dropped in your running back rankings. If Rainey starts, he takes a big jump up in the rankings.
