Found October 25, 2012 on Fantasy Football Champs:
Steelers running back Isaac Redman (ankle) turned in a limited practice session Thursday while Rashard Mendenhall sat out again.Fantasy Spin:Redman had 105 yards receiving in his last game but he's only rushed for 127 yards on 50 carries (2.5 ypc) this season. Jonathan Dwyer ran for 122 on 17 carries against the Bengals in Week 7 so even if Mendenhall remains out Dwyer will likely play over Redman.
