Didn't even bother showing up? Oof. Bye bye, 'Shard.Steelers | Rashard Mendenhall suspended Tue Dec 11, 06:48 PM
The Pittsburgh Steelers suspended RB Rashard Mendenhall for the Week 15 game Tuesday, Dec. 11, for conduct detrimental to the team. In a corresponding move, RB Baron Batch was promoted to the active roster.
Our view: Per the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, this suspension has to do with Mendenhall not showing up for the Chargers game last week after being told he would not dress. Jonathan Dwyer will continue to be the team's lead back. Mendenhall hits free agency next year and is unlikely to return to Pittsburgh.
