Great news for the Pittsburgh Steelers today as they’re slowly getting players back from injury, activating RB Rashard Mendenhall and NT Casey Hampton from the physically unable to perform list. Both are coming off ACL injuries that occurred at the end of last season, and it’s still unclear whether the two will be ready in time for their season opener against the Denver Broncos. Mendenhall is activated as RB Isaac Redman, who has seen most of the work in Rashard’s absence, injured his groin last week and just had an MRI. The team still is without Max Starks, Mike Adams and James Harrison, who had knee surgery on Wednesday. The Steelers host Indianapolis Colts Sunday night.

Don’t Throw Out Batch With The Mendenhall Bath Water Just Yet
