Jonathan Dwyer and Chris Rainey both practiced today for the Steelers.
With Isaac Redman also practicing, the Steelers could have some backfield choices for the first time in several weeks.
Who will start? Who cares.
The Steelers will likely run both Dwyer and Redman against the Chiefs on Monday, while Rainey, who has a cracked rib, will likely only return kicks.
@ Steelers offensive coordinator Todd Haley said all of the right things today when he met with the media.
Haley says he's over his firing in Kansas City, he's moved on, yada, yada, yada.
But you had better believe that Haley wants to beat the Chiefs - and more importantly, general manager Scott Pioli - in the worst way.
That does not mean, however, the Steelers will still be chucking the ball into the end zone up 31-7 in the fourth quarter.
Haley has a long relationship with current KC coach Romeo Crennel. He won't embarrass a man whom he respects.
@ Safety Troy Polamalu still has not practiced this week for the Steelers. But that's not such a big deal.
Because they play on Monday night, the Steelers will get an extra practice Saturday this week.
The team treated Wednesday as a bonus practice day and Thursday as their official first day of practice for this week.
Though Polamalu won't play this week against the Chiefs, I would be surprised if he doesn't at least go through some position drills by Saturday.
