Pittsburgh Steelers RB Rashard Mendenhall (Achilles) was limited in practice on Thursday, reports Dave Lolley of the Observer-Reporter. It was the team's first practice of the week as they draw the Monday Night game against the Kansas City Chiefs. Mendenhall hasn't played since suffering the Achilles injury back in Week 6.
Fantasy Impact: The Steelers have stressed that Mendenhall will take the starting job back once he's healthy. We'll continue monitoring practices this week, but it sounds like he's a longshot to suit up on Monday.
There's a strong chance that Mendenhall could be back in Week 11 against the Ravens' defense, so he's a good buy-low candidate for your fantasy playoff run. Keep him as a roster stash for now.
