Pittsburgh Steelers running back Jonathan Dwyer is considered doubtful for Sunday's game against the New York Giants because a sore quad muscle. The Beaver County (Pa.) Times reported that Dwyer, who has rushed for 299 yards on 58 carries in five games this season, did not practice Friday.

Mendenhall also was listed as doubtful this week with an Achilles' injury, meaning Redman likely will get the start Sunday.
