PITTSBURGH (93-7 THE FAN) — They haven’t been able to stay healthy, but the Steelers’ (5-3) backfield is starting to balance their offense quite nicely, and running back Isaac Redman, coming off a season-best 147-yard effort in New York, is looking forward to another big night against the struggling Chiefs (1-7).

“It felt good. I hate sitting on the sideline, watching my team go to battle, and not being able to contribute. No other running back could really step in, so I had to go out there and put the running game on my back, and I just tried to do my best,” Redman told 93.7 The Fan’s Eric Hagman about the win over the Giants.

With rookie Chris Rainey nursing injured ribs, and the lower body of veteran Rashard Mendenhall still on the mend, Redman is ready and hopeful once again to play an integral role in the offense.

“Coach Tomlin said he’s going to stay with the hot hand,” he explained, “but I’m not really sure what that means.”

The Steelers now average 104.9 rushing yards per game, which ties them with upcoming opponent and AFC North front-runner Baltimore for 20th overall. It doesn’t sound like much, but it’s a distinct improvement over the beginning of the season, when the Steelers ranked in the NFL’s basement in that category.

Redman spoke further about his own role in the offense:
