Rashard Mendenhall exited Thursday night's game with an Achilles injury. We break down the fantasy implications.

Rashard Mendenhall left Thursday night's matchup with the Titans after suffering an Achilles injury. Before leaving he carried the ball six times for a total of 6 yards.

Fantasy Impact: Now we wait to see how serious the injury really is. Mendenhall was listed as questionable after he left the game, but he never returned back to action. Issac Redman also left early with an injury, so Baron Batch took over and proved to be equally ineffective on the ground. Mendenhall just made his 2012 debut last week after having ACL surgery earlier this year, so this is not what his owners wanted to see in game No. 2. An update will likely come sometime on Friday, so be on the lookout for that news.
