PITTSBURGH (AP)

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Jonathan Dwyer might not get a chance at a third straight 100-yard game on Sunday against the New York Giants.

Dwyer is listed as doubtful thanks to a right quad strain that prevented him from practicing on Friday. Dwyer said ''it's looking good right now'' and called taking the day off a precaution.

Running back Rashard Mendenhall is also doubtful while he deals with a right Achilles injury, leaving Isaac Redman as the healthiest feature back remaining.

Redman, who started the first three games of the season, says his sore ankles are feeling better and that he'll be ready to play.

The Steelers will be without safety Troy Polamalu (right calf) and right tackle Marcus Gilbert (ankle). Linebacker LaMarr Woodley and safety Ryan Clark are probable.
