Isaac Redman is set to undergo an MRI due to a groin injury, Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. This is the first indication that the Pittsburgh Steelers running back has been having any kind of health trouble, so it's difficult to gauge just how serious the issue is.
Analysis: Be sure to keep an eye on Redman for MRI results. Assuming he is healthy, he has the potential to be a very good, potentially overlooked feature back. With Rashard Mendenhall expected to miss at least the first six weeks of the regular season while recovering from the torn ACL he suffered late last year, Redman should see plenty of touches. Redman was very productive after Mendenhall went down, totaling 110 yards from scrimmage in Week 17, and 142 yards in the Steelers' Wild Card playoff loss. At 230 pounds, Redman should see goal-line touches, and he is a solid receiver to boot.
