Former Steelers running back is hanging up his cleats

Veteran running back Isaac Redman announced today via Twitter that a spinal cord injury has ended his NFL career. According to the former Steeler, a handful of teams have called to inquire about his status, but orthopedic spine surgeon Dr. Robert Watkins has advised him not to continue playing football.

“Last season I tried my best through a neck injury but I just wasn’t myself on the field,” Redman explained in his statement. “After being released I went [to] Cali to see Dr. Watkins. After two MRIs and a cat scan, he then told me I had suffered a career-ending injury to my spinal cord. … I would like to thank all my fans for the tremendous support throughout my career.”
