Rashard Mendenhall's Speedy Recovery

Is Mendenhall a Go for Sunday Night?

December 19, 2011; San Francisco, CA, USA; Pittsburgh Steelers running back Rashard Mendenhall (34) runs with the ball against the San Francisco 49ers during the third quarter at Candlestick Park. The 49ers defeated the Steelers 20-3. Mandatory Credit: Kyle Terada-US PRESSWIREThere was a lot of hush-hush around the whole Rashard Mendenhall injury over the offseason, a lot of speculation that he could miss at least half of the 2012 season or not be full form for all of it.  But now, it looks like there’s a chance Mendenhall could open the season on the field, currently listed as Questionable on the Pittsburgh injury report.
 
Today, Mendenhall went through his second straight full day of practice, and he didn’t even wear a knee brace.
 
You may remember that in the Steelers’ last game of their 2011 season, first round against Denver, Mendenhall tore a ligament in his knee and things certainly didn’t look good for him.  But according to his Pittsburgh teammates, the recovery has gone quite well.  Defensive End Brett Keisel basically assured that Mendenhall was back in form, saying he looked “incredible” during yesterday’s practice.
 
FANTASY SPIN:
 
If you can afford the roster spots, I would recommend holding onto both Isaac Redman and Jonathan Dwyer until we actually see Mendenhall start taking 20 carries a game.  But if Mendenhall was passed over in your draft, now’s the perfect opportunity to scoop him up.  It’s hard to find a steady running back these days, but Mendenhall has proven he can be that man in the past.  Whether or not he’s got it in him this year is still up for major question, but at only 25 years old, Mendenhall may still have plenty in the tank.

It's ridiculous how low he was ranked considering his potential upside, he was barely in the top 50!  Behind perennial backups Bernard Scott and Rashad Jennings just a year after being a solid first rounder.

I have him in 2 fantasy leagues. Kind of felt like he could have been a steal given where I got him...
