    Tuesday with Tomlin, 10-30-12 - Injury updates and more

    TUESDAY, OCTOBER 30, 2012

    Tuesday with Tomlin
    Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin would not commit to a starting running back today, saying only that he expected Isaac Redman back at practice Wednesday, while Rashard Mendenhall has been cleared to return to individual drills.

    Jonathan Dwyer, who has started the past two games - gaining over 100 yards in each - is expected to sit out practice Wednesday and return Thursday.

    Tomlin said he'll wait until later in the week to make a decision on who starts, but the feeling here is that Dwyer starts, Redman serves as a third-down and short-yardage back and Mendenhall sits out again while he gets that Achilles' tendon 100 percent healthy.

    @ Troy Polamalu and Marcus Gilbert are out again, while Stevenson Sylvester is also looking doubtful with a hamstring.

    @ Ryan Clark will have to pass concussion tests but should be OK.

    LaMarr Woodley's hamstring is still a little sore and the Steelers will be limited at practice early in the week.

    @ Tomlin said he expects that the league is keeping a close eye on the situation in New York this week with the weather.

    There's been extensive flooding in the New York/New Jersey area, making travel around the city difficult.

    Things aren't expected to get back to normal for several days and I wouldn't be surprised if this game was bumped to Monday night to allow an extra day for cleanup.

    @ If you're looking for some insight into what the Steelers are planning to do with rookie nose tackle Alameda Ta'amu, look no further than the move they made Tuesday.

    The Steelers released practice squad defensive tackle Corbin Bryant and signed John Malecki and tight end/fullback Jamie McCoy to the practice squad.

    That tells me that they are planning on activating Ta'amu to the active roster and releasing a tight end.

    He was definitely his usual vague, non-committal self when it came to the question about Dwyer starting again.

    You could hear the disgust in his voice when he was questioned about Ta'amu though. He's got inhouse problems, legal problems, and league problems.

    It's a real shame what Ta'amu did to screw himself. He was supposed to be a good character guy, I was very surprised when I heard about his exploits.

    The Steelers are going to need Woodley back this week. Playing Eli isn't like playing RGIII. If you can get pressure on Manning it's a good thing.
