Ravens vs. Steelers: Rashard Mendenhall likely to return

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Rashard Mendenhall is expected to return to action when the Steelers take on the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday night.

Mendenhall has missed the last four games with an Achilles injury he suffered in Pittsburgh's Week 6 loss to the Tennessee Titans. Mendenhall also missed the first three games of the season as he was recovering from knee surgery. Overall he has appeared in just two games this season with 19 carries for 74 yards and four receptions for 44 yards and a touchdown.

Jonathan Dwyer and Isaac Redman have carried the bulk of the load this season with Mendenhall injured. Redman has 84 carries for 295 yards and two touchdowns with 14 receptions for 172 yards. Dwyer has 77 carries for 355 yards and six receptions for 36 yards. Both Redman and Dwyer have missed time this season as well for various injuries, but all three running backs seem ready to go in the same game for the first time this season.
