Running back coming off awful game Aaron Wilson

The Pittsburgh Steelers plan on keeping Isaac Redman in place as their starting running back despite a horrendous game against the Tennessee Titans.

Redman fumbled twice and rushed for only nine yards on eight carries during a 16-9 loss to the Tennessee Titans where the Steelers only rushed for 32 yards.

Now, Redman will get the start against the Cincinnati Bengals in the second game following the return of Jonathan Dwyer.

"Obviously he played a bad game," Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said of Redman. "He'll be given an opportunity to redeem himself."

The Steelers lost La'Rod Stephens-Howling for the season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament.

And rookie Le'Veon Bell remains sidelined with a foot injury

Dwyer led the Steelers with 623 rushing yards last season, but Tomlin was noncommittal on his role.

"That depends on his dependability," Tomlin said. "We'll play it by ear and see how he looks on the practice field and in the classroom."
