Steelers have suspended Rashard Mendenhall for one game, activated Baron Batch from practice squad.

Fantasy Impact:

Mendenhall had been deactivated for the last two games and a source is saying Mendenhall's suspension was because he failed to show up to the game last week. Mendenhall will be a free agent in 2013. Needless to say, he's dropable if you were still holding out hope.

Steelers RB Jonathan Dwyer (quadricep, doubtful) and Rashard Mendenhall (achilles, doubtful) missed practice Friday after taking limited reps Thursday and are both doubtful for Week 9. Isaac Redman (ankle, probable) is a capable back that has a mediocre matchup and is in line for a big workload. Baron Batch (shin, probable) returned to take full practice reps Friday after missing practice Thursday and is probable for Week 9. Batch figures to back up Redman, but Chris Rainey will also be in the mix.

Steelers RB Rashard Mendenhall (achilles, out) and Isaac Redman (ankle, out) missed practice all week and are out for Week 7. Jonathan Dwyer figures to get most of the work with both Mendenhall and Redman out. Baron Batch was active ahead of Dwyer last week due to his role on special teams. Batch and Chris Rainey should backup Dwyer, who is a sneaky start this week against the Bengals' suspect rush defense. He hasn't been very consistent this season, but he seems healthy and has a nice matchup this week. Consider him a low-end RB2.

Steelers RBs Rashard Mendenhall (achilles) and Isaac Redman (ankle) missed practice again Thursday. Both Mendenhall and Redman appear to be heading towards questionable tags. If they can't play, Jonathan Dwyer would probably be active and take the lead role. Baron Batch was active ahead of Dwyer last week due to his role on special teams. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette believes Mendenhall has a better chance to play than Redman.

Steelers RBs Rashard Mendenhall (achilles) and Isaac Redman (ankle) did not practice Wednesday. Redman hopes he can play in Week 7, but at this point his availability is looking pretty shaky. Mendenhall may also be out, but he's considered “day-to-day.” If neither player can play, then Baron Batch would get the bulk of the work.

Pittsburgh Tribune-Review - [Full Article]

The Pittsburgh Steelers have come to an agreement with veteran free agent running back Mewelde Moore.

The 5-11, 209-pounder spent the past three years with the Steelers, predominately as a third-down back.

Moore had 33 carries for 99 yards a season ago and 26 catches for 205 yards.

The Steelers were in need of a third-down back. The role was filled during today's first day of full padded practice by rookie Baron Batch.

Fantasy Impact:

Moore is a quality veteran, but offers almost nothing to fantasy general managers.
