The Pittsburgh Steelers have suspended running back Rashard Mendenhall for conduct detrimental to the team.
Mendenhall has been inactive for the last two games after fumbling in a 20-14 loss to Cleveland on Nov. 25. He was third on the depth chart behind Jonathan Dwyer and Isaac Redman when the team released its updated chart on Tuesday.
The 25-year-old Mendenhall has struggled staying healthy over the last 11 months. He tore the ACL in his right knee in the 2011 regular-season finale and returned on Oct. 4 against Philadelphia, accounting for 101 yards and a touchdown in a 16-14 victory. Mendenhall strained his right Achilles the following week against Tennessee and never regained a firm hold on the starting job.
The Steelers replaced Mendenhall on the roster by promoting running back Baron Batch from the practice squad.
