Free agent RB Isaac Redman has retired from the NFL.
His career was ended by a spinal cord injury last season. Redman likely suffered the injury when he was diagnosed with a concussion in Week 2. The 29-year-old spent his entire career with the Steelers as an UDFA out of Bowie State. He rushed for 1,148 yards and five touchdowns on 282 carries. Aug 22 - 10:57 AM

Steelers released RB Isaac Redman.

It's a surprise only in that Redman is a familiar name. Redman has been a healthy scratch since Week 4, and that wasn't going to change with rookie Le'Veon Bell putting a stranglehold on starting duties. Going back to the start of last season, Redman has averaged just 3.52 yards over his past 120 carries. The Steelers will move forward with Felix Jones and Jon Dwyer behind Bell.

Steelers declared RB Isaac Redman inactive for Sunday's Week 6 game against the Jets.

With Le'Veon Bell (foot) 100 percent, Redman is a healthy scratch as the No. 4 running back. There are no surprises on the rest of the Steelers inactive list: QB Landry Jones, WR Markus Wheaton (finger surgery), OT Mike Adams, C/G Cody Wallace, NT Loni Fangupo and LB Chris Carter.

Isaac Redman is inactive for Sunday's Week 4 game against the Vikings.

Redman wasn't listed on the injury report, but played through a concussion in Week 2. Le'Veon Bell is active and will start in his NFL debut. The rest of the Steelers inactives are QB Landry Jones, WR Derek Moye, C Cody Wallace, CB Isaiah Green, NT Loni Fangupo and CB Antwon Blake.

Isaac Redman said he sustained a concussion in the Week 2 loss to the Bengals, but reentered the game.

The NFL is going to want to have a word with the Steelers when they catch wind of this. Redman says he sustained the concussion on the opening kickoff of the game. He went back to the locker room and the team announced he was "being evaluated for a concussion." Then he came back onto the field for the second quarter and touched the ball four times. How did he fool the medical staff? "I said I was all right," Redman answered.

Isaac Redman is not expected to dress if Le'Veon Bell (foot) is active in Week 4.

Bell is fully expected to make his NFL debut against the Vikings. Redman has fallen behind Felix Jones and Jonathan Dwyer on the depth chart.

Isaac Redman failed to receive a carry in Week 3 against the Bears.

Redman didn't make his first appearance until late in the third quarter. He's behind Felix Jones and Jonathan Dwyer for touches and remains well off the fantasy radar.
Mon, Sep 23, 2013 01:53:00 AM

Isaac Redman rushed three times for just four yards and caught two passes for seven yards in Monday night's Week 2 loss to Cincinnati.

Redman was scheduled to start, but he ended up getting hurt on the opening kickoff. He was taken to the locker room and checked out for a possible concussion. Redman passed the tests and returned to the game in the second quarter. Fantasy owners that took the plunge and started him will be crying in their Wheaties in the morning. Avoid playing Redman or any other Steelers back next week against Chicago.

Isaac Redman was injured on the opening kickoff in Monday night's Week 2 game against the Bengals but later returned early in the second quarter.

Redman was slated to start the game. He walked off woozily to the sideline and was evaluated for a concussion. Felix Jones got the start in the backfield.
Mon, Sep 16, 2013 08:47:00 PM

Coach Mike Tomlin said Isaac Redman will start Monday night's game against the Bengals.

Redman fumbled twice and picked up eight yards on nine carries before getting benched in Week 1. "Obviously he played a bad game," Tomlin said Tuesday. "He'll be given an opportunity to redeem himself." With LaRod Stephens-Howling (knee) out for the year and Le'Veon Bell (foot) not close, the Steelers don't have a choice. Redman will be in a committee with Jonathan Dwyer, and Felix Jones may get a few change-of-pace reps. It's a fantasy situation to avoid, especially considering a matchup with Cincy's fearsome front four. Matt Forte rushed 19 times for just 50 yards (2.6 YPC) against the Bengals in Week 1.

Isaac Redman eight times for nine yards and lost a fumble in Sunday's Week 1 loss to the Titans.

Redman completely buried the Steelers early on when he botched a handoff from Ben Roethlisberger inside the 5-yard line and fumbled. He later bungled another exchange, but picked it up. In between there, Redman failed to make anyone miss and couldn't find the burst to get through a hole. He was benched for the second half and only got back in the game when LaRod Stephens-Howling got hurt. If Le'Veon Bell (foot) can get healthy, Redman will have a very meager role going forward. Even if Bell isn't back for next Monday's game against the Bengals, Redman won't be a fantasy option.
Sun, Sep 8, 2013 04:09:00 PM

Coach Mike Tomlin confirmed Isaac Redman will start Sunday's game against the Titans.

"We know what Isaac is capable of," Tomlin said Tuesday. The coach went on to say that he'll "obviously" spell Redman with LaRod Stephens-Howling and Felix Jones. Considering Redman averaged just 3.72 YPC last year and couldn't separate from Jonathan Dwyer (who was cut Saturday), fantasy owners need to keep expectations in check. No one should be desperate enough at the FLEX spot already that they need to use a talent deficient plug-and-play like Redman.
Tue, Sep 3, 2013 12:18:00 PM

Isaac Redman (stinger) was a full participant in Steelers practice Monday, and confirmed he'll run as the starter during Le'Veon Bell's (foot) absence.

This was the obvious implication when the Steelers waived Jonathan Dwyer. It's likely Redman will cede some touches to Felix Jones, particularly on third down, but he's the back to own if you simply must start a Steeler during Bell's absence. Redman was ineffective as part of the Steelers' ball-carrying carousel in 2012, averaging just 3.7 yards on his 110 carries. He's a low-end FLEX play. It's a situation to avoid if at all possible.
Mon, Sep 2, 2013 01:55:00 PM

Isaac Redman will be the Steelers' starter while Le'Veon Bell (foot) is sidelined.

Bell isn't expected back until Week 3 or 4 at the earliest. That leaves the Steelers with the unholy quartet of Redman, Jonathan Dwyer, LaRod Stephens-Howling and Felix Jones. Although Redman has been nursing a stinger, he's a coaching staff favorite and the most reliable option. Dwyer and whoever wins the change-of-pace job will also see work as part of a committee. It's a low-upside situation for fantasy owners. Redman had plenty of chances last year, but managed just 410 yards and two touchdowns on 110 carries (3.72 YPC).
Tue, Aug 27, 2013 12:20:00 PM

Steelers RB Isaac Redman missed Saturday's third preseason game with a "stinger."

Redman's absence for the Steelers' regular season dress rehearsal should lock in Jonathan Dwyer as the Week 1 starter. It's doubtful Redman's injury is serious, so we'd still expect him to be a part of the committee for the opener. Dwyer will chair said committee for the time being, but as it was last season, it figures to be a fluid situation. The upside is low with both players.
