Steelers running back Rashard Mendenhall has been saying this offseason that he thinks he can play in Week 1 this season despite suffering a torn ACL in Week 17 last season, and as training camp draws near, Mendenahll isn’t changing his tune.
Mendenhall took to Twitter today to give his fans an update, saying the knee has healed.
“My knee has healed wonderfully, thanks for all the well wishes!” Mendenhall wrote.
Mendenhall likely won’t be ready to go when training camp starts for the Steelers on July 25, but if he’s ready to go when the regular season opens on September 9, that would be an impressive recovery. And wonderful news for the Steelers.
