    Do you play Isaac Redman the rest of the preseason?

    Now that Jonathan Dwyer returned back to practice on Thursday and should play on Sunday night, do you let Redman sit the rest of the preseason or try to play him if/when he recovers?

    There's still three games left and you'd hope that by then he's well enough to play in at least the final game. If he's not then he's probably going on the PUP or being deactivated to start the season.

    Dwyer now has all the experience with Mendy still out. Maybe you let Redman rest regardless, let Dwyer play as the starter for a bit and then let Rainey and Batch do the bulk of the work.

    I'd hate to see IRed come back and then make it worse before the season starts.

    I wouldn't play Redman until the 4th preseason game, and that is only if he is 100 percent. We don't have quality depth (and according to some SA members) quality starters, so there is no reason to risk injury at our weakest offensive position.

    I don't see Redman playing this Sunday, even Dwyer will be strictly limited, . . will be a big dose of Batch and the New guy from Illinois . . .

    Yes for a bit in game 4 and then I see what we have in Rainey and Dwyer. Run Batch into the ground in the mean time.

    lol its not like hes adrian peterson and doesnt need preseason, hes a scrub if he can play he needs those reps. Id prefer dwyer get all the reps and steal the job, but redman isnt the caliber of player you sit in the preseason

    I have to agree with this. We need to protect both Redman and Dwyer and see what they have in the 4th week. Got to be real carful now. And we do need to sign another RB from someplace.

    Do we have Ricky Williams number on speed dial?
    The Steeler way...is the only way.

    This new guy Chris Ford has got to be better than Clay.I don't recall ever seeing a team have multiple catastrophic injuries year after year in training camp.
