Rashard Mendenhall: Closer than Redman?

RotoWire.com Staff

Update: The Steelers reportedly think that Mendenhall (Achilles') has a better chance of playing this week than Isaac Redman, Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Recommendation: For that to be plausible, Mendenhall needs to practice Friday, but unless he ends up listed as probable, the Steelers' 8:20 ET kickoff Sunday is problematic for those (who don't roster Baron Batch) interested in using Mendenhall this week.
