|The 2010 6th round pick lost the backup role behind to Isaac Redman in each of the last two seasons and enters 2012 coming off a foot injury that ended his season in Week 13. The Steelers liked him coming out of Georgia Tech but he was a bust as a rookie and has earned just 25 carries in two seasons. Granted, he has averaged 6.0 yards per carry in his limited work but you might want to know that 76 of those yards came on one run. While it is nice that Dwyer sits behind the largely unproven Isaac Redman, he has done nothing to suggest that he can take advantage of a situation. Dwyer is worthy of a late round pick in your fantasy draft based on opportunity.

On track to play in Week 14
|Tomlin said running back Le’Veon Bell, who sustained a concussion against the Baltimore Ravens, appears to be OK and could play against the Dolphins. Bell will be monitored during the week per their normal concussion protocol, Tomlin said. (Post Gazette)|
FF Today's Take: Bell is going through the concussion protocol this week and so far, so good. We'll track his practice participation throughout the week. If he's unable to play, Jonathan Dwyer would likely get the start.

Classified as a Lisfranc injury
|The Steelers could be out with Le'Veon Bell, their projected starting running back, for considerably longer than expected. Bell has a rare midfoot sprain that's being classified as a Lisfranc injury, a source told the Tribune-Review on Wednesday morning, and the team is now hoping to have him return in about a month.
FF Today's Take: This isn't good news for Bell. Foot injuries are tricky and now it's being classified as a Lisfranc. Darren McFadden, Maurice Jones-Drew and Santonio Holmes have all missed significant time in their careers with this type of foot injury. Isaac Redman is expected to start in Week 2 and will likely split time with Jonathan Dwyer.
