Pittsburgh Steelers RB Rashard Mendenhall (ACL surgery) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Oakland Raiders, reports Mark Kaboly of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. Mendenhall has yet to make his season debut, as he's still rehabbing from a torn ACL that ended his season early last year. Isaac Redman and Jonathan Dwyer will continue splitting carries in his absence.
Fantasy Impact: The Steelers have an early bye in Week 4, which would give Mendenhall an extra week of recovery and rest. However, at this point, there's not much reason to believe he'll be a boon to your fantasy team. Continue checking back for updates on his status.
