Rashard Mendenhall was a full participant in practice Thursday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Rashard Mendenhall (ACL surgery) was listed as a full participant in Thursday practice, reports Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Mendenhall has missed all of training camp and preseason rehabbing from a torn ACL, and was inactive in Week 1 against the Denver Broncos

Fantasy Impact: The Steelers' injury reports should be taken with several grains of salt - Mendenhall was also listed as a full participant last week, but later admitted that he barely practiced and didn't suit up for Sunday night. For now, assume he's not playing until proven otherwise. Jonathan Dwyer is still the top fantasy choice at RB for Pittsburgh.
