Steelers RB Rashard Mendenhall skips Monday's practice

Due to what he described his Achilles feeling "irritated," Pittsburgh Steelers running back Rashard Mendenhall @R_Mendenhall skipped the team's Monday workout. "It was just a little irritated," said Mendenhall. "It's a little tight. I'll just continue to work on it and get treatment. Hopefully, it will get better." The injury is not a tear or sprain. The four year vet is listed as questionable for Week 7 and CBS' Jason La Canfora believes he has a "good shot" to play. Redman is "hopeful" that he can play in Week 7 after injuring his ankle.

Fantasy Analysis:

Mendenhall missed most of Thursday's game against the Tennessee Titans. He was shut down too, only rushing for six yards on six carries. RB Isaac Redman @ired33 only rushed for 14 yards on five carries and also caught four passes for 105 yards. Redman should see decent playing time, assuming he's healthy, in Week 7 in order to not put a ton of pressure on Mendenhall's still-recovering body. The short week of rest and preparation certainly didn't do the Steelers any favors on the injury front.
