NFL Injury Report:
The Pittsburgh Steelers have reinstated running back Rashard
Mendenhall following his one-week suspension for conduct detrimental to the
team, reports Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
Halfback Rashard Mendenhall, suspended for one week by Mike
Tomlin, returned to the Steelers Monday.
The Steelers suspended Mendenhall for last Sunday’s game
against the Dallas Cowboys after the running back did not show up for the team’s
contest versus the San Diego Chargers at Heinz Field on Dec. 9. Mendenhall was
told prior to the Chargers game that he would not suit up but instead would be
listed as inactive.
Mendenhall entered the season recovering from a major knee injury.
While he was able to eventually retake the field, he’s struggled with fumbles
and generally ineffective running. In 34 rushing attempts the 25-year-old has
gained 113 yards while fumbling three times
Now that Mendenhall has been reinstated, the Steelers will
have a roster exemption until 4 p.m. EST tonight.

I was tired of Bruce Arians’ offense. I was tired of bubble screens and seeing Roethlisberger on his back more than Joan Rivers awaiting another...

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Plaxico Burress has been with the team for four games now and this past Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys he was one of the seven inactive players for the first since he was signed.

Maybe, but time is running out.

Thanks to Benson for sending this over.
I may be partial to Mr. Magoo's A Christmas Carol in terms of animated yuletide specials, but Charlie Batch having anything to do with Christmas wins Christmas.
Hopefully this season turns out less depressing than the typical Charlie Brown life scenario. Video below:
Here we go.
