Redmen Says His Hip May Bother Him the Whole Season

Isaac Redman is hoping the nagging pain in his hip is gone for good, Ray Fittipaldo of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. But he acknowledged that the troublesome injury that has prevented him from practicing much of the past two weeks might be a season-long issue.

“I’m a downhill runner and take a lot of pounding,” Redman said. “I’m not really sure how the hip is going to hold up or if it’s going to hurt at all, or if I’m going to be fine. I’m just going to go day to day and see how it feels.

“It’s pretty much a pain-tolerance thing. It might nag me throughout the year. I’m just going to have to fight through the pain.”

Last week, Redman had an MRI, which did not reveal a significant injury. He tried to practice, but the hip didn’t cooperate. He returned to practice Tuesday and was pleasantly surprised Wednesday morning when he woke up without pain. It was the first time in weeks he has been pain-free, He is hoping to play in the third preseason game Saturday at Buffalo.

“When I first did it, it hurt pretty bad,” he said. “It was probably an 8 on a scale of 1 to 10. I couldn’t run. I couldn’t cut. Then I tried to go and I had problems moving laterally. It was a sharp pain. When I went [Tuesday], everything went well. I didn’t feel anything. I didn’t have any setbacks, so I’m going to move forward every day.

“I’m trying to make it to where I can go Saturday. I have to go out there and get as many reps as possible.”

“Right now, I’m just trying to work my way back. Right now, I feel good. I feel a lot better than I did last week. I have to try to take this opportunity and run with it and fight through this injury.”

    It’s nice to know these things as a fan. But Redman would be better off just not saying anything outside of the Steelers coaching staff. When fans know so do the Steelers next opponents. Don’t know if they plan differently than they would with Redman healthy, but who knows? It’s better just to keep quiet and let everyone guess.
