Isaac Redman will practice Wednesday for the Pittsburgh Steelers after passing a concussion protocol, according to Mark Kaboly of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. Redman suffered a concussion early during the Steelers' loss to the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday.
There is no official word yet on Redman's status for this week's game against the Cleveland Browns. He will undergo another test Thursday that could give a better indication of his playing prospects.
Fantasy Impact: Whether Redman is worth fantasy consideration, even if he is deemed healthy, is another matter. Rashard Mendenhall and Jonathan Dwyer were on their way to take the majority of the carries out of the backfield last week even before Redman went down.
It has been impossible to tell who the Steelers' lead back is this season, thanks to a litany of injuries and vague statements from the coaching staff. At this point, however, it appears that it likely isn't Redman. Stay away from the running back for now.
