Dwyer is competing with Stepfan Taylor for opportunities behind starter Andre Ellington.
"We have all the confidence in the world in Stepfan and Jonathan," Arians said. "Jonathan had a big, long run (Tuesday) and Stef did an unbelievable job in pass protection. It’s an ongoing thing, and we’ll use them both.
"We won’t really have a two and a three. They’ll have roles and go into games with roles so everybody knows exactly what to expect. And when your number’s called to increase your role, you better be ready."
Andre Ellington is pretty much locked into the
"(Dwyer) is in better shape and he's running routes and catching the ball better than I remember," Arians said. "I know he'll pound you and can really run the football. I know he can pass block. But he caught the ball extremely well. He made some catches in the red zone for us. That was a surprise."
As for Hughes, the former Colts backup rusher, Arians called him "outstanding," citing his toughness, mentality and skill set as strengths. Not only is he a load on his feet but he can also run good routes and catch passes.
Both have a chance to make the Cardinals final roster.
Dwyer disappointed despite appearing in a career-high 15 games for the Steelers in 2013. His production fell off across the board, as he finished with 197 yards on 49 carries, without a touchdown.
Stephens-Howling must prove he's healthy following ACL surgery. If he's the only one who returns, the Steelers would seek to bolster the position through free agency or the draft, the report said.
