    That's why I said if healthy. If he and the team take the necessary precautions and make sure they don't rush his return. I love Mendenhall, but I honestly don't want to see him in-game until at least after the week 4 bye. But if he comes back healthy, and takes a couple games to get reacclimated, I can see him having a very productive second half of the season.

    Hope so. I really want to like Mendenhall but I guess his last season faux pas are still fresh in my mind.

    Its so hard as a RB to come back from that kind of injury, and remain the same as before. We will see though. Hopefully he'll be fine.
    However much you think you know about football, rest assured that Skip Bayless knows more!

    Everyone is so high on Baron Batch.

    To be honest, he won't do anything for us, all he does is write blogs and win people over to his side, but that doesn't necessarily mean he has the talent for us.

    Whilst I don't like Mendenhall, Redman should be our starter.

    Though it happens very rarely, I agree with you.

    I always talk right, just like to annoy other members to disvalue my opinion.

    After these games I just don't see much in him.

    It's very nice he writes blogs, and seems like the kind of guy on our team, but I hope it doesn't stop someone from making the roster.

    Rashard Mendenhall’s most strenuous work might not be rehabbing his knee.

    It might be learning patience.

    The Steelers aren’t expecting Mendenhall to play Week 1, but they obviously think it won’t be long thereafter, since they activated him from the physically unable to perform list.

    “To be real, I don’t know when I’ll be ready to play,” Mendenhall, said, via the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. “I’m just working with the training staff and doing what I can to get on the field.”

    Mendenhall, who injured his right knee in last year’s finale at Cleveland, has been using the time since being activated to adapt to a new offense.

    “I don’t question anything I’m doing in practice,” he said. “I can do most everything I did before, but I have to keep it within a certain realm that I’m comfortable with.

    “I was comfortable during the 7-on-7 drills. I jumped in some plays here and there, and hopefully we’ll increase that as we go along.”

    Activating him was a bit of a risk, since he might not be ready until after the Week 4 bye, but easing him into practice will at least give him a chance to work with Haley, in hopes he can hit the ground running.
