Mendenhall Injury

Postby faitdavid » Thu Oct 11, 2012 10:54 pm

Rashard Mendenhall was out for the first four weeks of this season as I'm sure you all know, but in tonight's Week 6 game against the Titans, he injured his Achilles. Man, that's rough...

Looks like they may have rushed him back too quick from the ACL injury. Just read a blurb that a lower leg injury (i.e. ankle/toe/achilles injury) is a common occurrence among ACL returning RBs. Not sure if the achilles injury is on the same leg as his torn ACL. Also worth mentioning that AD sprained his ankle last week too (torn ACL RB returning quickly).

Mendenhall is likely to start at RB for Steelers

The Steelers own one advantage going in their biggest game of the season: The Ravens know who the Steelers’ quarterback will be, but they’re only guessing about the running back.

Then again, the Steelers’ three running backs also aren’t sure who will take that first carry from scrimmage Sunday night at Heinz Field.

The Steelers have gone into big games this late in the season without injured quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. But they almost always have a running back in place.

Now they’re going with what coach Mike Tomlin said is the hot hand, starting three different backs — Rashard Mendenhall, Isaac Redman and Jonathan Dwyer — in the past five games.

Running backs coach Kirby Wilson said last week that Mendenhall would return when he was healthy, and he appears to be after missing four-plus games with an Achilles injury. Mendenhall reported being incident-free after practice Thursday.

Mendenhall has the best combined skills of the three — he possesses the get-to-the-edge explosiveness that Dwyer and Redman lack — but the downside is he figures to be rusty after getting only 19 carries all season.
