I would like to know what has caused the smoke to surface? ( where there is smoke theres some fire)

Tests of some sort for some reason. The team didnt work in pads today so people arent sure what is going on.

Lets see if he plays in the next preseason game

The rumor of Steelers running back Rashard Mendenhall breaking his arm today during practice today is just that, a rumor. Free safety Ryan Clark and others have put to rest that rumor as the Steelers did not even work in pads today in preparation for the Sunday night game in Denver. KDKA has also confirmed now that Mendenhall is indeed fine as has ESPN 1250 reporter Ken Laird. The rumor was reportedly fueled by radio talk show host Mark Madden

no doubt. we don't have anyone really battle-tested behind mendenhall. there's moore but he's not the kind of rb who can carry the rock 20+ times a game imo

redman looks promising but i won't be sold on him until i see him have success against a first-team squad

Agreed. We would end up having to pull Willie Parker back or something. There aren't any descent free agent RBs out there right now.

Hope it is not true However, you don't have to practice in Pads, or even hard to break your arm. Hell I have a friend who broke her arm JUST be scratching her A$$!...True story. Broke it in 6 different placing, and was in a cast for 20 Months Just by scratching her Butt! Of course she DID have very short arms, and she was only 4ft, 11, and weighed 473 Lbs :-).( Gee,,,I wonder if that had anything to do with it )

Madden is a total jack A $ $ who has no credibility whatsoever. Why does he have such a problem with the Steelers? He is just a fat jerk who spreads falsehoods every time he turns around. Why anyone would pay him to spout this trash is beyond me. But, come to think of it, anyone working for the press is a jack A $ $ .

I have been wondering the same thing about D0uche Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, and Pat Robertson for years.....as long as you have a message to deliver, no matter how stupid, there will always be some zombies somewhere willing to listen and keep you on the air.

"Aug 27, 2010 6:25 pm US/Eastern
Agent: Rashard Mendenhall's Arm Not BrokenPITTSBURGH (KDKA)

Jory Rand reports that Rashard Mendenhall's agent says that the story that he broke his arm is just a rumor.

The Steelers' public relations department says they have spoken to Mendenhall and he is fine and will play Sunday in Denver.

But KDKA-TV Sports also learned that Mendenhall underwent some tests on his arm.

Those tests are likely the source of this story getting started in the first place, but Mendenhall practiced with the Steelers.

He was seen getting ready to leave their facility on the South Side with no apparent sign of injury and whatever those tests were, it appears they turned out okay because it seems Mendenhall is fine and set to play against the Broncos"
