Alan Robinson of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports Tuesday via Twitter that Pittsburgh Steelers running back Isaac Redman said today that the MRI that he had last week revealed that the injury that currently has him out of action is to his hip and not his groin. Robinson reports that Redman said that he is getting better every day. Redman now figures to be limited to working on the side this week at practice and it seems unlikely at this point that he will play in the third preseason game this coming Saturday against the Buffalo Bills. The injury is rumored to have been bothering Redman Read more [...]

Steelers Offensive Game Notes Versus Colts

The Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Indianapolis Colts 26-24 Sunday night at Heinz Field in their second preseason game of the 2012 season. Below are my offensive notes from the game. The first big run by Jonathan Dwyer was a result of great blocking by the offensive line. Willie Colon had a great block out at the second level. Fullback Will Johnson also had a great lead block on the...

Steelers backfield in good hands with young talent on the rise

Just over a week ago, the Steelers running back situation looked like it was on life support. Isaac Redman wasn’t practicing with a sore groin, Jonathan Dwyer wasn’t working out either and Rashard Mendendhall is not near ready to return from this ACL injury from last year. The Steelers went out and signed Jason Ford  out of Illinois to help at least get some healthy bodies in...

The Pittsburgh Steelers beat Indy: What Matters

Unlike the norm, Ike Taylor held onto an INT last night for a Pick-6 that propelled the Steelers to a win. The Steelers team that took the field last night in Pittsburgh against the Indianapolis Colts figures to look very little like the finished product it is hoped this team will become.  Missing from the field were James Harrison, Rashard Mendenhall, Casey Hampton, Mike Wallace...

Steelers activate Rashard Mendenhall off PUP

In a surprising move, the Steelers have activated Rashard Mendenhall off the PUP list. This move is surprising because everyone, including Steelers GM Kevin Colbert himself, believed that Mendenhall would begin the season on the PUP and have to miss at least 6 games after tearing his ACL last December. Mendenhall is doubtful for week 1 and, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, ...

Mike Wallace Ready To Report To Steelers

Plugged in Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette says the Steelers expect wide receiver Mike Wallace to report this weekend. If true, it would give him two weeks to get ready for the opener.Fantasy Spin:Wallace was a top fantasy receiver in 2011, hauling in 72 balls for 1,193 yards and eight touchdowns. The two weeks should be enough time to be ready as both he and quarterback...

Offensive Line Fantasy Value of the Pittsburgh Steelers

Pittsburgh by all accounts should have had a major decline on Defense in 2011 but the “old” guys just keep being a resilient bunch.  Pittsburgh has had  a mantra that every team should have..”next man up.”  Whenever the Steelers had an injury or issue that should have impacted them immensely, they just plugged another well trained man into the spot of the man who went...

Steelers vs Bills preview

Affiliate: The Steelers have been involved in two incredibly close preseason games so far, losing to the Philadelphia Eagles by one point in the opener and then overcoming the Indianapolis Colts 26-24 last weekend. The win over the Colts was highlighted by a long touchdown grab by Antonio Brown from starting QB Ben Roethlisberger. Roethlisberger finished 5-of-9 for 81 yards and...

Veteran Surprise in Steelers' OLB Bullpen

James Harrison’s assertion this week that it’s still “realistic” to expect him to suit up in Denver was reassuring to a degree, but the linebacker position remains uncomfortably thin.

Standing Out: Players Who Took a Step Forward Against the Steelers

As we expected, and predicted, the Steelers were a much better test of talent against this Colts team than the abysmal Rams were in Week One of the preseason.  There were performances both good and bad this week, both as a team and individually. As the first roster cuts approach next Tuesday, which players are impressed last night?  Andrew Luck Luck was a little jittery for...

Feed the Beast

If Sunday night was any indication, Steelers defensive end Ziggy Hood is on the cusp of a breakout season. He's too shy to boast in that regard, but his teammates aren't.
