Steelers RB Isaac Redman had an MRI on his groin. We break down the fantasy implications.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Isaac Redman underwent an MRI Thursday for a groin injury suffered Wednesday. Neither he nor the team have given any details, but Redman told Mark Kaboly of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review that it "went well" and hopes to be back in practice Monday. Jonathan Dwyer took the first-team reps at running back.

Analysis: The Steelers' running game is still very uncertain. Rashard Mendenhall is expected to miss the first six games of the regular season after tearing his ACL, Redman and Dwyer are dealing with their own nicks and pains, and the offensive line is just as young and in flux. Redman could be an intriguing late-round pick for red zone carries, but for the most part it looks like Big Ben will have to carry the offense on his shoulders again; he and Mike Wallace are the only reliable fantasy options here.
