During his Tuesday press conference, coach Mike Tomlin said the running back rotation would not be changed for the upcoming week. Last week Dwyer got the start with Isaac Redman as the backup and Rashard Mendenhall was a healthy scratch.
The Steelers struggled to run the ball in their Week 14 loss to the San Diego Chargers, but Tomlin did not blame that on the running backs. Tomlin indicated that the situations of the game made the Steelers pass the ball more than they would have wanted. Dwyer carried the ball eight times for 32 yards and Redman had two carries for no yards. Running back Chris Rainey had one carry for six yards. Due to a large second half deficit, Pittsburgh's running backs only got three total carries in the second half.
Pittsburgh travels to Dallas to take on the Cowboys on Sunday, Dec. 16. Kickoff is at 4:25 p.m. ET.
