Rashard Mendenhall is questionable for Sunday's game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Baltimore Ravens, head coach Mike Tomlin said Tuesday. Mendenhall is still dealing with an Achilles' injury that has left him on the sidelines for the Steelers' last four games.
Fantasy Impact: Tomlin and others around the Steelers' organizations have repeatedly hinted that Mendenhall will be the team's starting running back as soon as he is healthy enough to return. When that will happen is a mystery at this point, however.
Keep a sharp eye on injury reports this week if you think you may need Mendenhall this week. The matchup is a good one on paper, though the Steelers will certainly be getting the Ravens' A-game. You may want to avoid Mendenhall as a fantasy option just as a precaution even if he is marked active at game-time.
