Rashard Mendenhall is list as doubtful for Sunday's game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the New York Jets. Mendenhall is still recovering from a torn ACL suffered late last season, and despite being a full participant in practice this week the Steelers are looking to ease the running back into game action.
Fantasy Impact: With Mendenhall all but ruled out this weekend, expect Jonathan Dwyer and Isaac Redman to handle rushing duties for Pittsburgh. Dwyer may have jumped Redman on the depth chart based on last week's performance, but don't be surprised if the two backs split the workload. Should they struggle, Mendenhall could be in line to take over the starting job in Week 3.
