According to several media reports Thursday on Twitter, Pittsburgh Steelers running back Isaac Redman was knocked out by linebacker Larry Foote on the first play from scrimmage during practice.
Redman reportedly got up slowly after fumbling the football and the trainers are checking his head and neck after he was helped off the field.
We will have to see if Redman returns to practice, but it sure sounds like he might be done for the day. The Steelers former undrafted free agent started the preseason opener last week against the New York Giants, but only carried the ball twice for 7 yards. Those wound up being the only two snaps he played in the game.
Head coach Mike Tomlin will likely update the condition of Redman at the conclusion of practice.
Redman just got knocked out by Foote 1st play from scrimmage. Now getting up slowly.
