Default Steelers still banged up

Steelers still banged up in the backfield

Posted by Mike Florio on October 24, 2012

The Steelers could need running back Jonathan Dwyer to carry the load again on Sunday, against the Redskins.

Running backs Rashard Mendenhall and Isaac Redman missed practice Wednesday. Mendenhall has an Achilles tendon injury; Redman is nursing an ankle problem.

Dwyer, who didnít practice Wednesday for reasons unrelated to injury, rushed for 122 yards in a win over the Bengals.

Also missing practice for the Steelers on Wednesday were tackle Marcus Gilbert (ankle), safety Troy Polamalu (calf), and linebacker Jason Worilds (illness).

Full participants were Will Allen (ankle), linebacker Chris Carter (hamstring), and center Maurkice Pouncey (knee). Linebacker Brandon Johnson (hamstring), linebacker Adrian Robinson (concussion), and kicker Shaun Suisham (left ankle) practiced on a limited basis.

Pouncey, who missed Sunday nightís win, is expected to be available for the Week Eight game against the Redskins. Polamalu, who has appeared in only two games this season, is expected to miss the game.
