Default Re: Hows the backfield looking for sunday?

maddog,

I agree, Rainey's best attribute will be as a receiver out of the backfield, no doubt. But he's still been hesitant IMO.

As for Dwyer, he was not on the injury report... he was simply the odd man out... that's why I'm surprised Redman dressed and he didn't.

Dwyer has not pulled on a uniform the past two games after Mendenhall returned from his ACL injury. He was the odd back out because they had their top two backs, their third-down back in Baron Batch and their wild-card scatback, Chris Rainey.

"The way it all happened, it made it look like I wasn't playing because I fumbled and things like that," Dwyer said. "It was all a numbers game."

Dwyer lost a fumble at the Steelers' 31 in the third game, the Oakland Raiders recovered and polished off a short drive with a touchdown to tie the score, 14-14, late in the second quarter.
