The Steelers look like they have their No. 1 running back fully healthy once again. Rashard Mendenhall carried the ball 14 times for 81 yards and one touchdown in Week 5. Reports indicate he did not suffer any setbacks in his first game back.
Fantasy Impact: Mendenhall looked good on Sunday. You couldn't tell it was his first game back, or that he had surgery on his knee earlier this year. Pittsburgh desperately needed help in the ground game, so Mendenhall will surely continue to shoulder the load going forward. Isaac Redman received 13 carries but couldn't find much room to run in his playing time, while Jonathan Dwyer was inactive. Expect Mendenhall to continue to improve as well as he makes his way back to regular action.
