Steelers not counting on RB Rashard Mendenhall for 2012

Pittsburgh Post Gazette - [Full Article]

The Steelers are not counting on Rashard Mendenhall being able to play in 2012 because of his ACL surgery.

Colbert did not say that Mendenhall would not play in 2012, but "I never feel good about an ACL for a year." Mendenhall had surgery on his knee in January after it was injured in Cleveland Jan. 1.

Fantasy Impact: 

If Mendenhall is unavailable for some or all of 2012, Isaac Redman will be a nice value pick in summer drafts. Redman filled in well for Mendenhall this season, but the offensive line continues to be a concern. Jonathan Dwyer will also likely see an expanded role.
