Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell's chance at starting this season will be determined by how quickly he will be able to pick up the offense. If Bell struggles to learn the offense, RB Jonathan Dwyer or RB Isaac Redman could start.
Wed, 01 May 2013 11:52:16 -0700
Pittsburgh Steelers RB Isaac Redman appears to have an edge over RB Jonathan Dwyer for the No. 2 running back job at this point.
Wed, 24 Apr 2013 10:54:59 -0700
The Pittsburgh Steelers consider RBs Isaac Redman and Jonathan Dwyer better suited as complementary backs and are looking to add a starting running back in the 2013 NFL Draft or free agency.
Fantasy Tip: The fantasy value of Redman and Dwyer would take big hits if they do become backups to another running back. They probably would still be in the mix for carries but their statuses will be better known later this offseason. The Steelers' No. 2 running back would have mild fantasy value.
Thu, 18 Apr 2013 16:16:05 -0700
Pittsburgh Steelers restricted free-agent RB Isaac Redman has signed his one-year tender offer. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Sat, 09 Mar 2013 12:57:51 -0800
The Pittsburgh Steelers have offered restricted free-agent RB Jonathan Dwyer, RB Isaac Redman and DT Steve McLendon the lowest tender. Each player could receive a one-year deal worth $1.323 million if they signed their tender. The team could receive a sixth-round draft choice if they lost Dwyer and will have the right to match any offer Redman or McLendon receives this offseason.
Sun, 17 Feb 2013 11:22:09 -0800
The Pittsburgh Steelers may offer the lowest tender to restricted free-agent RBs Isaac Redman and Jonathan Dwyer this offseason. The team could also decide to make an offer to only Redman.
Fri, 25 Jan 2013 14:46:01 -0800
Pittsburgh Steelers president Art Rooney II said the team needs better production from the running back position next season whether it be from the running backs on the roster or someone else. "Whether it's [RB Rashard Mendenhall] or [RB Jonathan Dwyer] or [RB Isaac Redman] or somebody else, we have to be better at that position, as well as others, but certainly at that position. In this offseason that's something we've got to look at and decide how we get better and who we get better with."
Mon, 21 Jan 2013 14:16:08 -0800
The Pittsburgh Steelers will search for a featured back, most likely through the draft, next season because they feel RBs Jonathan Dwyer, Isaac Redman and Baron Batch are complementary backs at best. Batch should have an increased role next season after the team released RB Chris Rainey. Impending free-agent RB Rashard Mendenhall is not expected to be retained.
Sun, 20 Jan 2013 18:27:40 -0800
Pittsburgh Steelers RB Baron Batch (forearm), who is recovering from a broken forearm, is the only halfback on the roster under contract for 2013. RBs Jonathan Dwyer and Isaac Redman are restricted free agents, while RB Rashard Mendenhall is an unrestricted free agent.
Sun, 20 Jan 2013 14:44:08 -0800
The Pittsburgh Steelers are not expected to start next season with RB Isaac Redman or RB Jonathan Dwyer as their main running backs.
Thu, 17 Jan 2013 10:59:56 -0800
Pittsburgh Steelers impending free-agent RB Rashard Mendenhall is not expected to return to the team next season. General manager Kevin Colbert said Mendenhall's decision to skip a game this season was "unacceptable." The team isn't very happy with their other RBs, Jonathan Dwyer and Isaac Redman, either.
Thu, 20 Dec 2012 09:22:40 -0800
Pittsburgh Steelers RB Isaac Redman feels the offense has abandoned the running game in recent weeks. The Steelers have 17 rushes in each of their past two games - the first time the team has had fewer than 20 rushing attempts in consecutive games since 1991. Pittsburgh's 34 rushing attempts the previous two weeks were the fewest in the NFL, and their 138 yards rushing over that span is third-worst in the league. "Some games, it feels like we just go away from it," Redman said. "We didn't run the ball bad (against the Dallas Cowboys), we weren't getting smashed the last game, we just didn't run it that much. We had 16 or 17 runs. When we were winning games, we were up in the 30 mark and we pretty much win when we do that. Hopefully, we can get back to that."
Tue, 18 Dec 2012 11:33:43 -0800
Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said the team is happy with the rotation they have at running back right now. RB Jonathan Dwyer has started the last two games with RB Isaac Redman backing him up. The club will find a role for RB Rashard Mendenhall.
Sun, 16 Dec 2012 21:25:38 -0800
Pittsburgh Steelers RB Isaac Redman led the team with 30 rushing yards on three carries in Week 16 against the Dallas Cowboys, and he had a 14-yard reception on his only catch. RB Jonathan Dwyer carried nine times for just 22 yards, but he was able to find the end zone.
Sun, 09 Dec 2012 19:45:27 -0800
Pittsburgh Steelers RB Jonathan Dwyer led the team in rushing in Week 14 against the San Diego Chargers, but that isn't saying much. He had eight runs for 32 yards, while QB Ben Roethlisberger (shoulder) was second with 31 yards on five rushes. RB Isaac Redman had two carries for no gain.
Tue, 27 Nov 2012 07:26:39 -0800
Pittsburgh Steelers RB Jonathan Dwyer is atop the team's official depth chart. RB Rashard Mendenhall, who had two fumbles in Week 12, is now behind RB Isaac Redman.
Fantasy Tip: Despite the unfavorable report for Mendenhall, he should be retained in mostly every league. Depth chart placements aren't the be-all-end-all in terms of how a player is used, so Mendy could easily prove more valuable than Redman or even Dwyer eventually. The two fumbles in Week 12 may have lost him some trust points with the coaching staff, though. As the season winds down and Pittsburgh gets Ben Roethlisberger (shoulder, ribs) back, this is turning into a RB situation to avoid.
Sun, 25 Nov 2012 17:59:36 -0800
Pittsburgh Steelers RB Jonathan Dwyer led the team with nine carries and 19 yards in Week 12 against the Cleveland Browns, and he also lost a fumble. RB Chris Rainey carried five times for 17 yards, and added four catches for 15 yards, but too lost a fumble. RB Isaac Redman got in on the fumble parade, losing one, and he finished with two carries for seven yards while added one catch for 15 yards. RB Rashard Mendenhall had four totes for just six yards, and he fumbled twice, losing one.
Fri, 23 Nov 2012 10:59:08 -0800

Thu, 22 Nov 2012 12:19:11 -0800

Pittsburgh Steelers S Will Allen (shoulder), RB Isaac Redman (concussion) and LB Stevenson Sylvester (hamstring) practiced in full Wednesday, Nov. 21.
Wed, 21 Nov 2012 09:58:52 -0800
Pittsburgh Steelers RB Isaac Redman (concussion) will participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 21, after passing a concussion test.
Wed, 21 Nov 2012 06:18:22 -0800
Pittsburgh Steelers RB Mike Tomlin said he is not sure who will start the team's Week 12 game at running back. Tomlin is uncertain how he will divide the workload between RBs Rashard Mendenhall, Jonathan Dwyer and Isaac Redman (concussion), if healthy. Redman performed well on his concussion tests and could play.
Fantasy Tip: The three backs rotated early in Week 11 before Redman's injury in the first half; Mendenhall and Dwyer split the carries later in the game. Mendenhall would appear to be the favorite to start; however, Dwyer had a team-high 12 carries and 55 yards last week. This backfield situation needs to be closely monitored moving forward.
Tue, 20 Nov 2012 14:30:58 -0800

Fri, 16 Nov 2012 10:40:28 -0800
Pittsburgh Steelers RB Rashard Mendenhall (Achilles') is expected to start in Week 11. RB Isaac Redman is expected to serve as the short-yardage, third-down back. RB Jonathan Dwyer is expected to be the change-of-pace back.
Wed, 14 Nov 2012 13:30:14 -0800
Pittsburgh Steelers RB Isaac Redman was not benched after fumbling the ball during the team's Week 10 game. Redman and RB Jonathan Dwyer were alternating every two series during the game which is why he did not immediately return to the game.
Wed, 14 Nov 2012 10:22:57 -0800
Pittsburgh Steelers RB Isaac Redman said he expects RBs Jonathan Dwyer (quadriceps) and Rashard Mendenhall (Achilles') to be active for Week 11 in addition to himself.
Mon, 12 Nov 2012 21:10:47 -0800
Pittsburgh Steelers RB Jonathan Dwyer (quadriceps) saw 19 carries for 56 yards in Week 10 against the Kansas City Chiefs, while RB Isaac Redman (ankle) had eight totes for 21 yards. Dwyer also hauled in a four-yard reception, while Redman had two grabs for 18 yards. Redman also lost a fumble.
Sat, 10 Nov 2012 11:30:03 -0800

Sat, 10 Nov 2012 10:05:40 -0800
Pittsburgh Steelers RB Isaac Redman said he worked mostly with the first-team offense during practice this week but would not said if he will start Week 10.
Thu, 08 Nov 2012 16:02:00 -0800
It looks as though Pittsburgh Steelers RB Isaac Redman will remain the starting running back in Week 10 against the Kansas City Chiefs Monday, Nov. 12, with head coach Mike Tomlin riding the hot hand. RB Rashard Mendenhall (Achilles') won't play this week.
Fantasy Tip: Jonathan Dwyer could significantly cut into that workload even if Redman starts, however. But the matchup against KC is too good to ignore, making Redman and Dwyer worthy of consideration in your flex spot.
Sun, 04 Nov 2012 20:40:22 -0800
Pittsburgh Steelers RB Isaac Redman had 26 carries for 147 yards and a touchdown in Week 9 against the New York Giants with RBs Jonathan Dwyer (quadriceps) and Rashard Mendenhall (Achilles') sidelined. Redman also added two receptions for four yards.
Fri, 02 Nov 2012 11:30:26 -0700

Fri, 02 Nov 2012 11:24:42 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Isaac Redman (ankle) received the majority of the reps with the first-team offense during practice Thursday, Nov. 1.
Thu, 01 Nov 2012 13:07:12 -0700
Pittsburgh Steelers RBs Jonathan Dwyer and Isaac Redman both feel that RB Rashard Mendenhall (Achilles') should return as the starter when he's healthy. "I mean, Rac is the guy," said Dwyer, referring to Mendenhall by his nickname. "Rac has been here for years, and they drafted him in the first round to be a starter. That's his room and we complement him." It's possible that Mendenhall will miss his sixth game of the year in Week 9. Dwyer and Redman are both expected to play after being nicked up.
Thu, 01 Nov 2012 12:57:42 -0700
Pittsburgh Steelers RB Isaac Redman (ankle) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 1.
Wed, 31 Oct 2012 15:07:23 -0700
Pittsburgh Steelers RB Isaac Redman (ankle) practiced in full Wednesday, Oct. 31.
Tue, 30 Oct 2012 11:52:43 -0700
Pittsburgh Steelers RB Rashard Mendenhall (Achilles') is unlikely to play again in Week 9. RB Jonathan Dwyer (quadriceps) is expected to return to practice Thursday, Nov. 1, and the feeling is that Dwyer will start with RB Isaac Redman (ankle) serving as the third-down or short-yardage back.
Tue, 30 Oct 2012 09:56:56 -0700
Pittsburgh Steelers RB Isaac Redman (ankle) is scheduled to practice this week.
Sun, 28 Oct 2012 13:19:15 -0700
Pittsburgh Steelers RB Jonathan Dwyer carried 17 times for 107 yards in Week 8 against the Washington Redskins, starting again because of injuries to RBs Rashard Mendenhall (Achilles') and Isaac Redman (ankle).
Fantasy Tip: Dwyer might be playing his way up the depth chart, regardless of what happens with the health of Mendenhall and Redman. That's back-to-back 100-plus yard games for Dwyer, who would be a solid RB2 or 'flex' play in Week 9 against the New York Giants if he gets another start.
Sun, 28 Oct 2012 09:39:38 -0700
Pittsburgh Steelers RB Jonathan Dwyer is starting in Week 8 against the Washington Redskins with both RBs Rashard Mendenhall (Achilles') and Isaac Redman (ankles) inactive again.
Fantasy Tip: The Redskins rank seventh in the NFL against the rush, so think of Dwyer more as a low-end RB2 or 'flex' play despite his starting status.
Sun, 28 Oct 2012 08:37:06 -0700
The Pittsburgh Steelers have declared LB Brandon Johnson, QB Charlie Batch, CB DeMarcus Van Dyke, RB Isaac Redman, OT Marcus Gilbert, RB Rashard Mendenhall, SS Troy Polamalu inactive for Week 8.
Fri, 26 Oct 2012 14:13:46 -0700
Pittsburgh Steelers RB Isaac Redman (ankles) is dealing with issues in both ankles. Redman did not play in Week 7 with the ankle issue and is questionable for the team's Week 8 game.
Fantasy Tip: Jonathan Dwyer will continue to get the bulk of the work until Rashard Mendenhall, who is dealing with an Achilles' issue, can get back on the field.
Fri, 26 Oct 2012 13:41:39 -0700
Pittsburgh Steelers RB Isaac Redman (ankle) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 26, and is listed as questionable for Week 8.
Fri, 26 Oct 2012 10:42:25 -0700
Pittsburgh Steelers RB Jonathan Dwyer is likely to start against the Washington Redskins in Week 8 with RBs Rashard Mendenhall (Achilles') and Isaac Redman (ankle) banged up. Dwyer rushed for 122 yards against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 7. "He's a big back who is pretty nifty with his feet. He's shown that all through the preseason (until now)," offensive coordinator Todd Haley said. "We got down a little bit on him for the fumble (in Oakland on Sept. 23). "But when we knew he was going to play last week, that was kind of mine and Coach (Mike) Tomlin's conversation: 'Let's not forget we were pretty excited about this guy.'"
Thu, 25 Oct 2012 12:34:54 -0700
Pittsburgh Steelers RB Isaac Redman (ankle) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 25.
