Mendenhall has started and played in just four games for the Steelers this season. In fact, the Steelers could've suspended Mendenhall four games. The Steelers suspended running back Rashard Mendenhall earlier this week. But it's a bad idea to bring back Mendenhall, and this is about what everyone has seen on the field. After being suspended one game for conduct detrimental to the team, the Pittsburgh Steelers have reinstated running back Rashard Mendenhall to their roster. He is too quick to bounce the ball to the outside, which has upset the Steelers' offensive linemen. Teams have been able to have success with rookie running backs, and you don't have to take one in the top five like Trent Richardson David Wilson and Alfred Morris have been instant producers in their first season in the league.
