Isaac Redman, not Jonathan Dwyer, will start for Pittsburgh Steelers if Le’Veon Bell still out
Summary of 2 articles · Updated Aug 27, 2013
Rookie Le’Veon Bell , who is nursing a foot sprain, is a lock to make the team. So too is Redman. But it's fair to ask why Redman over Jonathan Dwyer. Jonathan Dwyer will play in the Steelers’ final preseason game as he had hoped. Isaac Redman won’t get a chance to suit up at Carolina on Thursday despite his best lobbying efforts to do so. That Redman won’t play actually bodes well for the fourth-year veteran opening the season as the Steelers’ starting running back. Jones, meanwhile, will get one final opportunity to prove to the Steelers coaches that he belongs on the 53-man roster, which has to be finalized by 6 p.m. ET on Saturday. - - - Hit us up on Twitter @YShutdownCorner, email us at and "Like" Shutdown Corner on Facebook for NFL conversation 365 days a year, the way it should be.
