05:11 PM ET 11.04 | Rashard Mendenhall (Achilles) and Jonathan Dwyer (quad) are both out against the Giants for Sunday. Isaac Redman is active and will be the starter for the Steelers. Redman has been pathetic so far this year with a poultry 2.6 yard-per-carry average. Meanwhile, Dwyer has been ripping off runs and is more than double that clip in his action. The Steelers are likely going to need to air it out a little bit with the ineffectiveness of Redman. Redman has been useful in the passing game, but Chris Rainey is also expected to see his fair share of touches. The Giants are ranked 19th against the run and they've shown some improvement in stopping teams with their exceptional pass rush.

Redman had 147 yds on 26 carries, not too shabby....I hope Chris Rainey is OK!

"a POULTRY 2.6 yard-per-carry average"

If I thought the writer did this on purpose it would be funny--he runs like a chicken? But I think he actually intended "PALTRY." which means something like "meager" or "trivial." This is why spell-check is not a substitute for a competent editor.

Damn straight I kept having to remind myself that it was't Bradshaw handing off to Harris. That was some Steeler football is what that was

The OL has been mashing opposing D's the last 3 weeks. Here's to hoping they keep it up the rest of the season!!!
