Steelers | Rashard Mendenhall a healthy scratch

Mon, 03 Dec 2012 11:07:06 -0800

Week 13 was the first time in Pittsburgh Steelers RB Rashard Mendenhall's career that he was a healthy scratch after being demoted to No. 3 on the running back depth chart earlier in the week. The Steelers made the move likely because they wanted eight offensive linemen active instead of seven. OT Willie Colon (knee) was active but did not start at left guard. OG David DeCastro was active for the first time this year but didn't start, either.
