The Steelers are planning to give running back Jonathan Dwyer more chances in Sunday's game against the Jets. Dwyer was the only back who ran effectively at Denver in Week 1. The backup to Isaac Redman with Rashard Mendenhall out, Dwyer ran nine times for 43 yards. Coach Mike Tomlin said Dwyer earned "increased opportunity" with his effort against the Broncos. Redman had one good short-yardage run for a first down but not much more as he finished with 20 yards on 11 carries. All in all the Steelers ran 26 times for 75 yards and a 2.9-yard average with no touchdowns. Dwyer had the team's longest run, 11 yards.
