Jonathan Dwyer and Isaac Redman say that Rashard Mendenhall should be the Pittsburgh Steelers starting running back once he is healthy enough to do the job.
Dwyer has posted consecutive 100-yard rushing games, but told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that Mendenhall should return as the starter once his knee is healthy enough to do so.
"I mean, Rac is the guy," said Dwyer, using Mendenhall's nickname. "Rac has been here for years, and they drafted him in the first round to be a starter. That's his room and we complement him."
Redman said all three backs should contribute and play.
"I don't really feel like it matters who starts," Redman said. "When all three of us are healthy, we're all capable of being in the game and contributing."
