Mendenhall injures a hamstring
By BOB LABRIOLA
Steelers.com

Last year, it was Lawrence Timmons’ groin. This year, it’s Rashard Mendenhall’s hamstring. And none of it surprises Coach Mike Tomlin.

Last May, Timmons arrived as the team’s No. 1 draft pick, but after taking part in one full minicamp practice, he was injured and ended up missing the rest of the offseason program. This year, Mendenhall was the No. 1 pick, and after taking part in both minicamp practices on Friday, he missed both sessions on Saturday with what was termed a slight hamstring strain.

“It’s a precaution right now,” said Tomlin about the decision to sideline Mendenhall. “He has somewhat of a hamstring injury. It’s becoming somewhat commonplace for some of these high-round draft picks to have this situation happen to them during minicamp weekend. It happened to Lawrence last year, it happened to (No. 2 pick LaMarr) Woodley last year.”

It’s unlikely that Mendenhall will return to the field for Sunday’s finale, but Tomlin doesn’t expect his injury to linger as long as Timmons’.

“The schedule that these guys are on is really not conducive for preparing them to come in and meet what awaits them in terms of minicamp,” said Tomlin. “They go through the combine and they go to their pro day, and then they go on this city tour, where they’re visiting with respective teams and they have functions they need to go to.

“When they’re in college, they spend a lot of time in winter conditioning programs getting ready to play spring football. It’s an awkward time for these young guys, because they’re not really a part of a team as they prepare for the draft. They miss a little bit of that, and injuries happen. But like last year, it’s short-term misery. It’s not going to define him. It allows him to take a step back, and watch and take some mental reps.”

If the health news on Mendenhall was something less than ideal, Tomlin was tickled to talk about the progress two of his veteran players have been making after needing season-ending surgeries last year.

Ryan Clark did not play after the Oct. 21 game in Denver, and he eventually had to have his spleen and gall bladder removed. After losing between 25 and 30 pounds during the entire ordeal, Clark has returned and taken part in every portion of the offseason program to date.

“If you know Ryan, you don’t count him out of anything,” said Tomlin. “He has a great spirit, he’s a great competitor, he has passion and loves to play the game of football. He’s in the process of marching back, and you probably won’t know (how he will do) until we go out and play football. We like where he is right now, and I’m sure he’s glad to be back out there with his teammates. His teammates are happy to have him, and he’s a great leader.”

Marvel Smith battled back spasms for portions of last season, and his injury ultimately required surgery as well. He missed five complete games.

“When you feel good your spirits are uplifted, and all reports are that Marvel is feeling as good as he’s felt in a long time,” said Tomlin. “It’s the sacrifice these men make to play this game. A lot of times you play in less than ideal circumstances in terms of health – it’s part of it. But when you deal with those situations like he has and you come through the other side and you’re feeling good, you really appreciate it. That’s what you see from him.”

MINICAMP NOTES: Tomlin said he excused Ben Roethlisberger from the afternoon session so that the quarterback could attend to some personal matters … Darnell Stapleton had been given permission to miss Friday, and he was back on Saturday … After one practice on Sunday, minicamp will end. The players are not allowed to gather as a complete team again until OTAs resume on May 20.

Hey, If it is common place for this to happen, and has now happened to Timmons, Woodley, and now Mendenhall; wouldn't ya think it might be a good idea to do something about it? If the rookies are not conditioned because of the travelling, etc., leading up to the draft, maybe it might be a good idea to move the mini-camp back a week or two (isn't that when Cowher had his). Two give them time to get their conditioning back up. Perhaps not run them as hard?

Obviously there is a problem that MT knows about since he spoke about it.

If the electric fence keeps shocking you, maybe you should quit touching it.

I hope he gets well soon. I don't understand all the pressure on Mendenhall and Timmons. I don't expect them to contribute right away, but see them as the future of this team. Keep in mind that Mendenhall is almost 7 years younger than Willie and that Timmons is over 10 years younger than Farrior.

You guys are funny. The sky is falling! The sky is falling! I have a feeling Timmons is going to come into his own this season. It's just a feeling, though.

I got a kick out of ESPN, who said Ben was excused from afternoon practice to attend to a prior engagement, but that he "looked sharp" making "all the throws" in three practices, and that he seemed to have a good grasp of the offense.

What the? Did they expect him to suddenly turn into a dirveling idiot after three months away from football?

:doh: No, I think your taking that a little too far bud. I think that we have had some bad luck the last 2 years. I just hope that Rashard is in alot better condition to rebound from this injury quicker than Timmons did last year. And I believe that it held Lamar Woodley back alot last year as well. Its better that it happens now than the first week of training camp

why does nobody like timmons?

He was out of shape in the pre-draft testing and ran a slow 40, but Tomlin still had a mancrush on him (which he blurted out in the pre-draft press conference) and drafted him at 15 even though the Steelers could have traded down and still drafted Timmons.

He then injures his groin in mini-camp and aggravated it in training camp, which arguably was related to Timmons getting fat pre-draft.

Timmons had one big year at FSU when the ACC was down - combine that with not doing squat (he was not drafted to be a functional special teams player) in his first year and some of us question the pick.

Timmons fans point out Troy struggled in 2003 but Troy had a history at USC that leaves Timmons in the dust - of course Troy had a monster second season - lets see if Timmons can even beat out Foote for an ILB starters slot this season.

I am not saying the pick is a bust but Timmons needs to step it up this season.

Because he is a hell of a lot better than any of the remaining players, including all of the offensive lineman. Every other team was reaching for OT because they were coming off the board so fast. Mendenhall is not a bust, he was by far the Best player available, and he doesnt have a lot of mileage on his tires, and if he is such a bust then why are all the analysts praising us for the pick??
