Rashard Mendenhall (Achilles) missed practice on Friday and was limited on Wednesday and Thursday. He is listed as doubtful and not expected to play for the Pittsburgh Steelers against the New York Giants on Sunday.
Mendenhall has played in only two games and has 19 carries, 74 rushing yards and added a receiving touchdown so far this season.
Fantasy Impact: So he has dealt with an ACL rehab and now he's struggling with an Achilles injury. Not good. Those are two of the worst injuries to recover from and he's a lock to remain on the injury report for the rest of the season at the least.
He's not a player who should be owned in all leagues by any stretch of the imagination. His ceiling is dropping and he'll be in a time-share situation at best.
