Rashard Mendenhall dealing with a toe issue, fantasy value trending downward

Matt Kartozian-USA TODAY Sports

Rashard Mendenhall (toe) didn't practice on Wednesday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Rashard Mendenhall (toe) did not practice on Wednesday. He remained on the sidelines and was on a bike.

Mendenhall has dealt with a knee injury since training camp, but this is the first we've heard of a toe issue. It's unclear whether it's a sprain or the dreaded turf toe.

Fantasy impact: The injuries are piling up for the oft-injured tailback. He was busy for the Cardinals in their win on Sunday with 15 carries and he's basically seeing a featured role. That could change now that it doesn't look like his body is going to hold up. Andre Ellington has been moving up the depth charts and had received praise from the coaching staff. He makes a lot of sense as a pickup while Mendy owners could entertain the idea of trading him for the right price.
