Former Illinois running back Rashard Mendenhall was drafted last month by the Steelers. And Mendenhall likely is anxious to move to Pittsburgh, pronto.

Mendenhall was robbed at gunpoint on Monday in Chicago, according to the Sun-Times. He surrendered his phone, cash, and wallet.

“It was obviously a scary moment,” his agent, Mike McCartney, told the Sun-Times. ”But he is fine. He is doing great. He said he doesn’t have anything that is worth his life.”
