Redman said in a Quote today that he could have easily played in the last two preseason games. It was Tomlin's idea to not play him. Probably because he knew Bell was Hurt, and that they were gonna release Dwyer anyways, so why risk him playing in preseason games when he already knows Haley's offense, and the O-line. As where Howling and F.Jones did not.
But Redman was not injured. So that excuse is wrong.
