    Can we find a healthy running back? Mendenhall done for the year

    Parker out
    Mendenhall out
    Davis out

    All that's left on this team is Moore right now, and that's no joke. We'll have to wait and see what develops with the injuries this week but it's not looking good early on for our stable of backs, or lack thereof...

    Less than favorable situation.

    We currently have 1 running back healthy. Don't get me wrong. I like MeMo. But the whole "no backup or fullback" thing is a bit unnerving. I am not sure of the severity of Carey Davis, Rashard Mendenhall, or Willie Parker's injuries. A sprained knee, especially one that forces you to miss a game, is nothing to laugh at.

    I am a fan of Gary Russel, but I don't want him being the top backup right yet.

    Parker will be back after the bye week....They might even rush to play him next week....I would expect Russell to be back on the active roster with these injuries to all the RBs.......I don't think Mendenhall or Davis have serious injuries but who knows at this point....

    I wouldn't be surprised if they haven't already contacted Russel to get him on a flight back to Pittsburgh tonight or first thing tomorrow.

    We haven't heard any updates yet on Mendenhall or Davis other than it's a shoulder and ankle respectively.

    Russel is on the practice squad, so he is at the game I think.

    At least the one back we have left is a good all-purpose guy.

    Finally, it will be Gary Russel time. He has been slaped in his face because of his college grades and that should stop now. Tomlin can't fu@k this up. Russel would have put that ball in the end zone, simple as that.

    Yes Mendenhall has a broken shoulder and he's done for the year. Simmons has either an achilles injury or a broken ankle.

    wow this is just all kinds of not good.

    Russel and Davenport are the obvious choices right off the bat...BG32 and I were talking and Shaun Alexander is available right? Might be worth checking into

    This is just such a sad thing for Mendenhall, the dude was running hard tonight and getting into the flow of the game.
