Here's what we do know about the Steelers' backfield: Isaac Redman will be on the field first tonight versus the Broncos. After that initial snap, who knows? But yes, Redman will get the start, sources have told ESPN's Josina Anderson. He is listed as probable on the injury report because of an ankle injury and is expected to split carries with Jonathan Dwyer . Rashard Mendenhall is listed as doubtful as he continues to work himself back up to full strength after tearing an ACL in January.
Still, Dwyer would be the guy I want if I had to pick someone out of this trinity. Redman isn't 100 percent and is more suited for third-down duties. Dwyer wasn't forced to miss two preseason games because of injury and was the team's best runner in August. In any event, I think this is going to be close to an even split, making either player nothing more than a flex option. But for what it's worth, I think Dwyer has more upsde tonight.
