RB Mendenhall Ahead of Schedule on His Broken Shoulder

Good news on the injury front for the Black and Gold, and the Post-Gazette today said that RB Rashard Mendenhall is ahead of schedule for his broken shoulder suffered in the Week Four Monday night win over the Ravens that landed him on I.R. Here is the story:

Steelers rookie running back Rashard Mendenhall has recovered so well from a broken shoulder blade that he could have played the final month of the regular season and into the postseason if he hadn’t been placed on injured reserve, said director of football operations Kevin Colbert. Mendenhall, the team’s No. 1 draft pick, was injured in Week 4 against the Baltimore Ravens when he was tackled by linebacker Ray Lewis. Mendenhall did not have surgery. Such an injury is more associated with car accidents than football games. “He’s way ahead on his rehab,” Colbert said. “He looks good at this point and all the medical reports indicate he’ll have a full recovery.”

Matt Loede has been in the sports media for over 16 years, with experience covering the MLB, NBA, and NFL. On Sunday’s during football season, you can hear Matt on national networks like Fox Sports Radio, Associated Press, and others. Born and raised in Cleveland Ohio, Matt studies and talks football inside and out, and is anxious to share his thoughts and comments with readers on a daily basis.
