Steelers running back Rashard Mendenhall (Achilles) didn't practice Wednesday.Fantasy Spin:Mendenhall is day-to-day with the injury, but it's not a positive sign that he was unavailable Wednesday since Pittsburgh played in the Thursday night game last week. We're probably looking at a game-time decision Sunday night.
Steelers running back Rashard Mendenhall (Achilles) and Isaac Redman (ankle) didn't practice Friday and will not play in Week 7, asccording to Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post Gazette.Fantasy Spin:Jonathan Dwyer should get the start and is a decent play against the Bengals on Sunday night, but the Steelers figure to throw more often than normal. Baron Batch will be his backup.
The Steelers run game was at full strength against the Eagles, but just two weeks later it has again been decimated with injury once again. Rashard Mendenhall’s knee is back to full strength, but he will miss Sunday’s game with an Achilles injury. Isaac Redman and Marcus Gilbert are also ContinueThe post Steelers Running Game Questionable for Sunday appeared first on SteelBlitz.
I’m to the point right now where I really don’t want to hear anymore about scheme or play-calling or injuries or if Ben is mad at Haley or if out throwbacks are really that ugly (yes they are). Instead, how about we see some fire and intensity from this team? How about someone get in the face of a teammate and say, “Let’s go! Get your S#@$ together and block that guy or cover...

The Pittsburgh Steelers won’t have their top option (Rashard Mendenhall) for their crucial matchup with the Bengals on Sunday night football this weekend. Their reliable pass catching backup (Issac Redman) has also been ruled out of action, leaving a trio of relatively unknown running backs set to handle the load against the divisional foe. But who will have the greatest fantasy...
Ben Roethlisberger, Urban Meyer, Randy Moss and Michael Turner, to name a few, are busy otherwise and aren't walking through that door.
Still, the good old days are back in the Mid-American Conference.
MAC teams and players are earning national recognition, highlighted by Ohio University cracking the Associated Press Top 25 this week. An off-the-national-radar, offensive...
Head Coach Mike Tomlin came down from on high for his weekly press conference and announced what sounded more like a list of soldiers in the infirmary rather than a list of injured football players. Rashard Mendenhall, Isaac Redman, Maurkice Pouncey were called ‘questionable.’ Troy Polamalu, Marcus Gilbert and Chris Carter are each ‘out’ for Sunday night’s game in Cincinnati...
Thanks to my bud Benson for sending this over. I needed this.
After the Steelers dropped to 2-3 I was pretty frustrated with both the team and the fans' response to just unecessary losses. And despite the state of the team, I still remain as optimistic as ever.
