Arizona Cardinals running back Rashard Mendenhall is dealing with a knee sprain, but the team doesn't seem too concerned about the injury. Mendenhall is considered day to day and while he won't play in Thursday's preseason finale, head coach Bruce Arians is hopeful he will play in the Week 1 opener.
Mendenhall tore his ACL at the end of the 2011 season and played in only six games last year, recording 182 yards on 51 carries.
Fantasy impact: Ryan Williams will get the majority of playing time on Thursday, but he's just trying to prove he's healthy after missing most of camp. Mendenhall will be the starter once healed up.
The Cardinals offensive line is in shambles once again after losing Jonathan Cooper to a broken leg, and they look to be a pass-first team in Arians' new offense. Mendenhall is a big fantasy gamble and a poor draft value with his sixth round ADP.
