Steelers HC Mike Tomlin told reporters on Tuesday that they intend to stick with Isaac Redman as their starting running back for Monday night’s game against the Bengals.
“Obviously he played a bad game,” Tomlin said, via ESPN.com. “He’ll be given an opportunity to redeem himself.”
Redman’s performance Sunday was not only discouraging, but the loss of LaRod Stephens-Howling left them with limited depth at the position. Pittsburgh re-signed Jonathan Dwyer on Monday, but it’s doubtful that he’ll see anymore than a limited number of carries in Week 2. Felix Jones is more likely to be used as their change-of-pace back.
