It's looking like Jonathan Dwyer will get his second consecutive start this week against Washington as Rashard Mendenhall sat out practice again Thursday, while Isaac Redman was limited.
That's not necessarily a bad thing.
Frequent readers of this blog know that I've thought all along that Dwyer was a better all-around player than Redman - though I like Redman as well.
And given Washington's shoddy defense, letting Mendenhall sit another week isn't a bad thing.
@ I've had to laugh when I hear the topic of the Steelers having to sit either Redman or Dwyer once everyone's healthy.
Were people not listening to what Mike Tomlin had to say about his special teams units on Tuesday.
As Tomlin said, once everyone's healthy, there may be some special teams regulars on the bench if they continue to draw penalties.
We know Baron Batch plays teams, so, in effect, he doesn't necessarily count as a running back. Same goes for Chris Rainey.
The Steelers could keep all five running backs on their roster active on game day with no real problems.
What does Leonard Pope really do, anyway? Same goes for DeMarcus Van Dyke if he continues to draw penalties.
