Steelers running back Isaac Redman claims to have not had to do too much to get back on the field after suffering a concussion.

Steelers players don't seem to have much of an issue taking part in the Festivus tradition of the "Airing of Grievances" lately.

This time, as reported by Post-Gazette reporter Ed Bouchette, Isaac Redman was forward with diagnosing his own concussion he suffered in Week 2.

How did he beat the concussion testing administered on the sideline?

"I said I was all right."

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin is quick to lean on the medical professionals employed by the Steelers for the scientific details surrounding such injuries. Redman, who, to our knowledge, does not possess a degree in any medicine-related field, seems to have found a much simpler explanation.

This will no doubt draw the attention of the Steelers' coaching staff and front office, not to mention the league. While one could argue if he had a concussion, he very well might not remember what he did to get back in the game - he appeared to have suffered the injury on the opening kickoff of the team's eventual loss to Cincinnati.

Redman was pulled back to the sideline, and Felix Jones took his place.

What we know is he, as well as many other Steelers, played as if they were concussed in that game.
