My brother sent me a text saying that Mendenhall broke his arm and he would be out 2 months. But I looked for an article on it and I'm seeing a lot of things saying that it isn't true. Anyone know what's going on?

I think things are beginning to surface. According to Rotoworld he doesn't have a broken arm. http://www.rotoworld.com/content/playerpages/playerbreakingnews.asp?sport=NFL&id=4652&line=179494&spln=1

I scared myself too..trust me. Although Ryan Clark did twitter something about how they weren't wearing pads at practice so Mendenhall should have never been hurt..http://twitter.com/ryanclark25. Wonder what that's all about?

Just when the Pittsburgh Steelers' running game was seemingly on the rise, their starting running back Rashard Mendenhall reportedly broke his arm today.

Full details of his injury have not yet been released, and the Steelers have yet to confirm the story. However, sources say that Mendenhall injured his arm, and in all likelihood will miss significant time as a result.

Potentially losing Mendenhall will hurt the Steelers in an exponential way this season.

Mendenhall is without a doubt the only true feature back caliber player on the roster. His injury will only be compounded by the tremendous need the Steelers have to run the football in the absence of quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.

If Mendenhall is forced to miss substantial time, replacements are likely be a combination of third down back Mwelde Moore and training camp wonder Isaac Redman.

More to come as information becomes available.

:dunno:

Seems to be a lot of conflicting reports. :banging:
Once there is a confirmation one way or the other, the title will get edited again. Probably safer this way to just leave it as a rumor. And lets hope it's just that. :crossfingers:

KDKA's Jory Rand reports that Rashard Mendenhall's agent says that the story that he broke his arm is just a rumor.

The Steelers' public relations department says they have spoken to Mendenhall and he is fine and will play Sunday in Denver.

But KDKA-TV Sports also learned that Mendenhall underwent some tests on his arm.

Those tests are likely the source of this story getting started in the first place, but Mendenhall practiced with the Steelers.

He was seen getting ready to leave their facility on the South Side with no apparent sign of injury and whatever those tests were, it appears they turned out okay because it seems Mendenhall is fine and set to play against the Broncos.

I can't believe Mark Madden is still doing sports. Is he on talk radio? He belongs back reporting on the WWF.

I ask this as seriously the heart attacks many of us had upon seeing this post, but how on earth does Mark Madden have a job? I mean, I cannot think of one person who actually likes this guy. Does he have naked photos of the mayor or something?

Actually, he is part of a LARGE contingent of people who think Pittsburgh just inst big enough for the Steelers and Penguins, so they despise the Steelers for being the better/more popular/more successful organization. Honestly i know about 50+ people, Pittsburgh born and raised, who hate the Steelers and football in general because they feel it "takes all the attention"! And Mark Madden is the ring leader... honestly if it isnt Roethlisberger (his old neighbor by the way) "Double M" hates it!!!

He knows next to nothing about football. He DOES however know his hockey, 105.9 The X (his home station) is the Official Penguins network... i think he should be allowed to ONLY have a hockey show! His football discussion is VERY anti-Steeler (Pro-Ben though) and it was terrible having him as the only daily sports talk show in the Burgh. Luckily we have "the Fan" now and Madden is history to me!
