Steelers RB Rashard Mendenhall's Achilles injury isn't serious

Rashard Mendenhall @R_Mendenhall isn't alone -- he left all of his fantasy owners sore Thursday. He gained just 17 yards on seven touches against the Titans and missed most of the second half with an Achilles injury. Fortunately for those owners, Mendenhall isn't expected to miss much more game time. A source who spoke with Mendenhall told's Ian Rapoport that the injury is minor. According to the source, Mendenhall's Achilles tightened up on him, and the Steelers chose to take no chances, especially since Mendenhall is coming off an ACL tear.

Fantasy Analysis:

Meanwhile, Isaac Redman @ired33 suffered an ankle injury Thursday night. Jonathan Dwyer @JDwyer27 was a healthy scratch. Baron Batch @baron_batch scored a touchdown, and Chris Rainey @crainey3 got into the game as well. This backfield is pretty messy with or without Mendenhall, but at least we know whom the top dog is if Mendenhall is healthy. We'll see how he progresses during the upcoming week. There's currently no telling if he'll play in Week 7 at Cincinnati.
