• Running back Isaac Redman, chastised by coach Mike Tomlin for revealing he would have an MRI on his injured groin, said the test revealed Thursday exactly what the Steelers' athletic trainers thought it would. Only he didn't say what that was. And Tomlin wouldn't even acknowledge that Redman had the exam. Redman hopes to be back on the field as early as next week. “Hopefully I can get through this, rehab it and do what I need to do to get healthy,” Redman said.

LaMarr Woodley is out $60,000 and, unlike fellow linebacker James Harrison and his frequent run-ins with the NFL's fine patrol, this is money he gladly paid. When Woodley heard his former school district in Saginaw, Mich., was being forced by budget restraints to charge athletes $75 to play this year, Woodley decided to pick up the tab. Tomlin said Woodley set an example for every NFL player. “He's a man that took $60,000 and provided potentially a lifetime of opportunity,” Tomlin said.

• The Steelers are finally getting some of their injured players back. Left tackle Mike Adams (knee) and running back Jonathan Dwyer (sprained shoulder) practiced Thursday, a week after they were hurt during a preseason game in Philadelphia. Offensive tackle Max Starks (knee) will start working out Friday, although he is not ready for full activity. Starks is seven months into what is normally a nine- to 12-month window for returning from a torn anterior cruciate ligament. “It's still a long way away, Sept. 9, and in my mind, there are a lot of things that have to be put in order,” Starks said, referring to the opener. Newly signed tight end Justin Peelle practiced, but offensive tackle Chris Scott was diagnosed with an ankle injury.
