    Aww, man. That hurts those guys.

    It was another one of those random grass turf injuries.

    That sucks but that is just part of the game I am sure they will just keep on rolling though.

    Lots could happen injury wise with each playoff game. Everybody is 0-0 again!

    Can't say I feel bad for him. With his socio-political commentary this past offseason, he's on my **** list forever.

    Everyone says bad stuff but I still do not wish injury or illness on them.

    They'll be ok without him, Redman's very capable & i was pretty high on Dwyer coming out last year.

    Does that mean some OTHER Steeler back will have to have MULTIPLE fumbles in the playoffs and SCREW the entire team in his place?

    ...Too soon?

    I think they've got that covered - Redman fumbled twice on Sunday against the Browns.

    :thinking: I wonder if he realizes that the Packers DIDN'T send Mendenhall a Superbowl ring for the FUMBLES that gave them last years title.

    That's b/c his fumble didn't lead directly to points. Big Ben got 1 for the pick 6 he threw earlier in the game though.
