NFL Trade Rumors:
Mike Bires tweets that Steelers RB Jonathan Dwyer missed Friday’s practice with a quad injury and adds that “all signs point to” Isaac Redman getting the start against the Giants this weekend.
With RB Jonathan Dwyer sitting out today, al signs point to Isaac Redman starting for the Steelers. #steelers

Rashard Mendenhall figures to miss another game because of the Achilles injury that he’s been dealing with, so Redman could be in line for a very solid workload. The Giants are an average defense, so he could be a decent spot-start in fantasy leagues. Dwyer still has a chance to play, but it seems unlikely that he would seen a huge workload.

THE WALKING DEAD
Former Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Hines Ward will have a cameo role this season in the hit AMC show, "The Walking Dead." Ward will play a zombie of course and the 7 minute video below has all of the details. The 36-year old Ward, who is now an NFL analyst for NBC Sports, had over 12,000 receiving yards in his career for Steelers and has never been shy when a camera...
According to Aditi Kinkhabwala of NFL.com, Pittsburgh Steelers running back Jonathan Dwyer was sent a weighty message by head coach Mike Tomlin following the end of the 2011 season as the Georgia Tech product was warned in front of all of his teammates that if he showed up to training camp overweight he would be out of a job.
Kinkhabwala reports that Tomlin had a picture of Dwyer...
While I was not a fan of Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown backpedaling 20-yards into the end zone on the punt return last week against the Washington Redskins, I think him being fined $10,000 is way too harsh.
To put that in perspective, the Baltimore Ravens were fined $20,000 by the NFL this past week for previously not listing free safety Ed Reed on the injury...
The Pittsburgh Steelers resumed practice on Thursday as they prepare to take on the New York Giants Sunday at MetLife Stadium.
The Thursday injury report is now out and it shows that linebacker LaMarr Woodley (hamstring), linebacker Stevenson Sylvester (hamstring) and running back Baron Batch (shin) did not practice. The status of Woodley heading into the weekend now appears to...
Sure, the deep passes to Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Mike Wallace are down so far this season under the direction of new offensive coordinator Todd Haley, but he is still on pace to have a solid season, and the process might just be increasing his market value as well.
Despite the lack of deep receptions, the Steelers fourth year receiver has 36 catches on the season and...
The players on the Pittsburgh Steelers defense liken Hall of Fame coordinator Dick LeBeau to a father figure. When the critics started chirping the 75-year-old LeBeau was losing his touch after the Steelers got off to a slow start, his players rallied around him.
The proof is on the field.
Nearing the season's midway point, Pittsburgh (4-3) is second in the NFL in yards allowed...
TweetLast week the Steelers wore those hideous striped uniforms but the only uniform Big Ben Roethlisberger should be wearing is an orange prison overall.
Just having a little fun with Big Ben and yes the neck was purposely left out of the funny mugshot picture, just seemed funnier that way. Can't wait for the New York Giants to pound him (no pun intended) week 9.
Due to Sandy's aftermath, the Steelers have no choice but to fly into Newark on Sunday morning and bus to its game against the Giants at MetLife Stadium that afternoon.
The hotel that the Pittsburgh Steelers were to stay at on Saturday in Jersey City is still without power so the team will fly in on Sunday for their 4:25pm game with the NY Giants.

Pittsburgh Steelers (4-3) at New York Giants (6-2)
Last week, the Giants won in Dallas in the exact type of game they normally win. They are now 18-7 ATS as road favorites under Tom Coughlin. On the road in general, they are 50-25 ATS under Tom Coughlin, as opposed to 34-38 ATS at home. As home favorites of more than 3, which they are this week, they are 18-26 ATS under Tom Coughlin...
