The Pittsburgh Steelers are still being coy about RB Rashard Mendenhall's status for Monday's game against the Broncos. Although the team listed him as a full participant in Thursday's practice, he was reportedly nowhere to be found on the field, only telling reporters he practiced "a little bit", suggesting that the team is staying tight-lipped to keep the Broncos guessing. Mendenhall is still recovering from a torn ACL that ended his season early last year.
Fantasy Impact: The Steelers' bizarre mind games aside, Mendenhall still won't have much fantasy value at the start of the year, leaving the run duties to Jonathan Dwyer and Isaac Redman. With Redman having injury issues of his own, Dwyer is the safe fantasy play this week.
