The Pittsburgh Steelers have waived running back Isaac Redman and promoted LB Kion Wilson from the practice squad.

Redman began training camp expecting to compete for the starting job but struggled to stay healthy. He managed just 12 yards on 10 carries this season and saw his playing time decrease behind rookie Le'Veon Bell and veterans Felix Jones and Jonathan Dwyer.

The 28-year-old Redman thrived at times. He ran for 121 yards in a wild card playoff loss to Denver two years ago and finished second on the team with 410 yards in 2012, including a career-high 147-yard effort in a victory over the New York Giants.

Redman was placed on the inactive list in each of Pittsburgh's past two games.
