Steelers RB Mendenhall off PUP list

Adam Shefter on Twitter - [Full Article]

Even though he is off PUP, Steelers' RB Rashard Mendenhall is not expected to be ready to play regular-season opener, could miss most of Sept.

Fantasy Impact: 

Our own Dale Lolley, longtime scout who covers the Steelers, agrees, and said today he "can't see Mendenhall doing much for a while." Owners are likely to jump on this and take a shot on Mendy before he really should go in drafts. Roster spots are precious, especially in the early season, so unless you have a deep league Mendy could just be sucking up space for a while unless you can IR him. The upside can be great though. Taking him at the right time in your draft will be the key.
