EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP)

Running back Jonathan Dwyer is missing a chance at a third-straight 100-yard game when a strained right quad forced the Pittsburgh Steelers to inactivate him for Sunday's game against the New York Giants.

Dwyer, who missed practice Friday, was replaced by Isaac Redman, who was inactive the past two games with an ankle injury.

Safety Troy Polamalu is missing his fourth straight game and sixth in seven with a calf injury.

Giants safety Kenny Phillips is inactive for the Giants despite practicing all week. He has now missed the last five games with a knee injury.

Tight end Bear Pascoe also is inactive with an ankle injury. Mark Herzlich starts at middle linebacker for Chase Blackburn, who sustained a hamstring injury last week.
