Isaac Redman, who briefly left the Bills game with a stinger before returning and scoring the team's first touchdown, sat out of practice on Monday with an ankle injury and isn't expected to play against the Panthers in the preseason finale Thursday night at Heinz Field. Steelers coach Mike Tomlin indicated that the injury isn't serious, and Redman is fully expected to be ready for the season opener against the Broncos on September 9th. Jonathan Dwyer will probably start in place of Redman tomorrow night.
In other injury news, Brett Keisel suffered a mild high ankle sprain in the game against Buffalo but said he "was fine" when asked about it in the locker room afterwards. There haven't been any indications this week that Keisel is any less fine than what he stated on Saturday, although he hasn't practiced yet this week, and it's very unlikely that he'll play in tomorrow night's contest.
Nose tackle Casey Hampton, who is recovering from offseason ACL surgery, was back at practice this week, and may see some game action Thursday night. There hasn't been any official word as to whether or not he'll play, but according to Tomlin, Hampton's "got a chance" to see some snaps against the Panthers.
The only other injury news of note as the preseason draws to a close is that both James Harrison and Jason Worilds were finally activated from the PUP list on Tuesday. Harrison has been out all of camp with a swollen left knee that eventually required arthroscopic surgery two weeks ago, and Worilds is still recovering from offseason wrist surgery. Neither player is ready for any game action, preseason or otherwise, but their activation from the list is certainly a step in the right direction.
