Found November 14, 2012 on Fantasy Football SPIN:
Rashard Mendenhall may finally be ready to return. He's the big name with the largest paycheck and most proven history so it stands to reason he'll get a chance to reclaim the starting gig in light of the other rushers struggling. Against the Chiefs on Monday night Jonathan Dwyer (19/56) and Isaac Redman (8/21) couldn't get anything going. The ground game will be critical with Byron Leftwich at QB. Mendenhall is officially listed as 'Questionable' and we will know more when we learn about who did and didn't practice today.
