No Surgery For Isaac Redman, Out This Week

Following test results, Pittsburgh Steelers running back Isaac Redman will avoid surgery on his injured hip, but will also miss the Steelers' preseason game on Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts. However, Redman could return to Steelers practice as early as next week.

In addition to the hip problem, Redman has also been slowed in the preseason by a groin injury. The Steelers expected Redman to enter the season as the starter as Rashard Mendenhall (torn ACL late last season) has just recently been removed from the physically unable to perform list. With this latest news, Redman could still be on track to be the feature back for the start of the season.

Jonathan Dwyer, who had been battling a shoulder injury, is projected to start against the Colts on Sunday at the running back position.

MRI Scheduled For Isaac Redman

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Isaac Redman is scheduled to undergo an MRI on his injured groin, according to Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Redman initially sustained the injury during a night practice on Aug. 3 and has been forced to miss some practice time since.

Despite the injury, the 27-year-old back was able to play in the Steelers' first preseason game at Lincoln Financial Field against the Philadelphia Eagles last Thursday. Redman finished the game with five carries for a total of 14 yards rushing, in addition to two receptions for four yards receiving.

Since being signed as an undrafted free agent out of Bowie State in 2009, Redman has registered 726 rushing yards (162 attempts), 150 receiving yards (27 receptions) and five total touchdowns in 33 career games with the Steelers.
