Rashard Mendenhall emerges fine after first game

Mike Bires on Twitter - [Full Article]

RB Rashard Mendenhall (knee) didn't have any setbacks in his first game of the year.

Fantasy Impact: 

Much like Adrian Peterson, Mendy was thrown right into duty and carried the load. He had 14 carries to Isaac Redman's 13, but Mendenhall collected 81 yards and a TD and was much more productive. He also collected 2 passes for 20 yards. It was the shot in the arm the Steelers running game needed. Expect Mendy to be a solid starter going forward and for his workload to increase.
