Isaac Redman will miss the Steelers' preseason game against the Colts on Sunday with a hip injury. We break down the fantasy implications.

Isaac Redman will miss the Pittsburgh Steelers' second preseason game against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday with a hip injury, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Tests conclude that the issue will not require surgery, and Redman could return to practice early next week.

Analysis: The Steelers' running back situation terribly complicated at the moment. Redman seemed like a potentially solid mid-round pick until his latest injury problems and Friday's news that Rashard Mendenhall would be activated from the physically unable to perform list earlier than expected. Mendenhall is still expected miss Week 1 of the regular season, but after that it's anyone's guess when he may return to the field, making an early investment in Redman a risky one. How carries will be split once both backs are healthy is still unclear. In sum: Wait for further information before tethering your fantasy hopes to Pittsburgh's backfield.
