Default Mendenhall is sick

Sickness sidelines Mendenhall, so Steelers give Parker more work

Associated Press

PITTSBURGH -- Steelers running back Rashard Mendenhall missed practice Thursday with flu-like symptoms, allowing Willie Parker to take more carries with the starters as he returns from a two-week layoff with a toe injury.

Steelers offensive coordinator Bruce Arians says he likely will not pick a featured back until game time Sunday against the Cleveland Browns.

Mendenhall, a first-round draft pick last year, ran for 165 yards against the San Diego Chargers and 77 against the Detroit Lions after Parker injured his left big toe during a Sept. 27 game against the Cincinnati Bengals. The Steelers are hopeful that Mendenhall can practice Friday.

Theory:
Rashard is from Chicago, and more than likely grew up idolizing a certain Chicago sports legend. Micheal Jordan...

What happened every time Micheal Jordan came down with the "Flu"? BUCKETS!!!

I think we might see the rushing record challenged this Sunday.

Browns have been sick since 1999. So, things should even out now.

Hope he gets well soon, and if he's not 100%, then they should probably start Willie on Sunday.

Mendy needs to be healthy for Minnesota. I still think it's premature to declare him a star runningback yet, but I'd take him over Parker against a strong defense like Minnesota.
