The running back position remains a bit of a mystery for the Steelers after two preseason games.
All of the running backs have been used in various situations, and chances are that each will play a vital role come the regular season.
Isaac Redman figures to be the starter and will get a bulk of the carries, though he missed last week with a groin injury.
Given his importance to the offense, it may be wise to give Redman extra rest so that he can be 100 percent for the start of the regular season.
Jonathan Dwyer is showing signs of finally living up to his potential.
Dwyer has had a good camp and has been solid in the preseason. He is effective not only running but also as a receiver and has a knack for finding holes in the defense and turning them into big runs.
It is possible that Dwyer will have a fairly large role with the offense this year.
But the most exciting player is Chris Rainey.
Rainey has been a focal point for the offense for all of training camp, and the coaches continue to get the ball in his hands during the preseason.
Though he will never be a back who can carry the load, Rainey could end up with the second-most touches from the back position.
Rainey is a decent runner, but he has the potential to be an excellent receiver out of the backfield. This is where he will make his mark.
Baron Batch remains a bit of a question mark.
He has had a ton of opportunities this preseason but has not looked particularly good at running the ball.
There has been a lot of talk from fans that he would be the third-down back, but that is not necessarily the case, as both Redman and Dwyer are capable (Rainey was not included because of his lack of blocking abilities).
Chances are that situational football will dictate how the backs are used this season and that the Steelers will go with the hot hand.
