    Steelers fear a torn ACL, won't know for sure until he gets a MRI.

    Pittsburgh Steelers’ starting running back Rashard Mendenhall left Sunday’s win over the Cleveland Browns with a knee injury, and head coach Mike Tomlin told reporters after the game that he could have a torn ACL, according to multiple reports.

    An MRI will be performed Monday to see the extent of the damage.

    sounds like Mendy may be done. I think Redman can do it if he holds onto the ball.

    It's a loss, but not one that's impossible to over come. Steelers don't rely as much on the run anymore. If it was Brown, we'd be in much worse trouble.

    True the Steelers don't rely on the run like they use to but Ben's ankle still is a huge concern......Hard to believe Ben will be his usual self next week so the running game will have to produce and the Steelers are even thinner now at RB.......The running game will have to produce.....I like Redman and I'm anxious to see him in his first play-off start....I'm usually hard on Mendenhall but the last month he has looked like a different back and seemed to be hitting his stride so its a shame he is out for the play-offs.....Next man up...Its been the theme all year......

    I bet they wish that they would have rotated Dwyer and Mendy the whole year like Houston did with their RB's.
    The Steeler way...is the only way.

    This is a per-dick-i-ment!

    Clay is a good short yardage back but?..............

    I love Redman but what if he gets hurt or keeps fumbling?.............

    FWP wasn't any good when he was good!.................

    Let's hope Mwelde is ready to go..........who the hell would name a kid Mwelde?

    If its torn, it is pretty darn impressive he walked out of the stadium the way he did... Most people get carted out with that kind of an injury. In any case, we should probably get used to the idea that he is out for the year.
    However much you think you know about football, rest assured that Skip Bayless knows more!

    Confirmed, he's done for the year.

    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Steelers running back Rashard Mendenhall is out for the rest of the season.
    KDKA-TV Sports has confirmed he has a torn ligament in his knee.
    Mendenhall went down in the first quarter Sunday against the Cleveland Browns without being hit.
    Tests Monday confirmed the injury.

    I am less concerned about Mendy and the running game than I am the fact that the offense cant score more than 14 points per game. That is not enough to win a playoff game. I thought the offense was pulling it back together towards the end of the Browns game, but what is with Wallace? I saw him duck to avoid a hit he thought was coming rather than going up for a ball. His arms have gotten noticeably shorter across the center of the field. He ran out of bounds rather than putting his head down and gaining a more yardage. Seriously, what is up with this guy?

    its a loss but the steelers can overcome it, i have faith in redman he grinds it out for that extra yardage, and fights for it, he hits the hole hard like a true back is suppose to do, but we will see
