Peter King: Rashard Mendenhall "not ready to play football"
King on the Steelers' RB situation: "I think if your fantasy draft is tomorrow, you'd be smart to pick Isaac Redman ahead of Rashard Mendenhall, who is not ready to play football because of offseason knee surgery and should miss at least the first six games of the season."
This echoes GM Kevin Colbert's "guess" that Mendenhall is headed for PUP. At best, Redman is the starting RB for the season and at worst, he'll start 6-8 games and enter a timeshare with a recovering Mendenhall during the second half of the season (barring injury, of course).
