Rashard Mendenhall: Will Reclaim Starting Job When Healthy
Update: Though Mendenhall (Achilles') is probably a week away from returning to game action, when he is ready to play, he will reclaim his starting role, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

Recommendation: Despite the strong efforts turned in by Isaac Redman and Jonathan Dwyer of late filling in for Mendenhall, Steelers running back coach Kirby Wilson endorsed Mendenhall on Wednesday saying, the he "has the whole package, so that’s your guy," while adding "Rashard has always been our lead dog and our top runner." That said, while Mendenhall is line to start when he gets back, the Steelers intend to deploy his backfield mates as well and plan to ride the hot hand. As for Monday's game against the Chiefs, a Redman Dwyer time-share seems to be the likely outcome.
