James Harrison isn’t the only Steelers player with an uncertain outlook because of injury.
Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that running back Isaac Redman will get an MRI on his injured groin. Redman hasn’t been able to get through a full practice since the team’s preseason opener against the Eagles last Thursday.
Redman had five carries for 14 yards and two catches for four yards in that game, but injured the groin during practice the previous week. He tried to practice on Tuesday, but had to leave before the session was complete. The MRI is expected to give the Steelers a better idea of how to treat Redman as well as a timeframe for his full return.
These are not healthy times in the Steelers backfield. Rashard Mendenhall still has no timetable for his return from a torn ACL, Jonathan Dwyer has missed practice time with a shoulder injury and John Clay was waived-injured this week after tearing his quad. That leaves Chris Rainey and Baron Batch as the healthy Steelers runners at present, which can’t be the most comfortable feeling for the team with the season fast approaching.
