Steelers running back Isaac Redman overcame an ankle injury to practice Friday and he back believes he could play Sunday vs. the Washington Redskins, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
Redman went through drills Wednesday and felt sore. He didn't play in last week's game vs. the Cincinnati Bengals.
Friday, he said it was like 'like night and day" with how his ankle felt so he practiced with the scout team and then ran series with the regular offense.
Could he play vs. Washington?
"It's up to coach Tomlin now. I feel like I can. It's amazing how much better it feels," Redman said, according to the Post-Gazette.
Jonathan Dwyer rushed for 122 yards agaisnt the Bengals and likely will be the starter Sunday, too.
Browns: They could have DT Phil Taylor back. He practiced several times this week after offseason pectoral surgery. He has been pain free as coach Pat Shurmur marveled at Taylor's presence.
"He looked big," Shurmur said, according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer. "I'm not used to seeing him out there. I'm not saying he's fat. I'm like, 'Wow.' It reminds you how big he is. I watched him quite a lot and he moved around fine."
Cleveland faces the San Diego Chargers on Sunday.
Bengals: They're on a bye week, but coming out of it they expected to have RB Brian Leonard back from a rib injury. He didn't play last week vs. the Steelers. He could be ready for a Nov. 4 game vs. the Denver Broncos.
“I feel good,” Leonard said, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer. “I was out there with Nick (Cosgray, Bengals director of rehabilitation) the other day running around. Didn’t feel too much pain at all. I feel like I’ll be good.”
Leonard averages better than 4 yards per carry. While he has been practicing this week, OT Andrew Whitworth and C Jeff Faine (hamstring) haven't participated.
Faine was signed just before the season because of a foot injury to starter Kyle Cook.
