Steelers Activate RB Rashard Mendenhall Off PUP List

Steelers are hurting a little bit no pun intended at the running back position so I am not shocked.

Don’t change your fantasy draft boards until you see what Mendenhall looks like in game action.

Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert has been saying for some time now that running back Rashard Mendenhall, who tore his ACL late last season, would likely begin 2012 on the physically-unable-to-perform (PUP) list. So it was with some surprise that the team announced Friday that Mendenhall and teammate Casey Hampton, who was also recovering from offseason ACL surgery, had been removed from the PUP list.
