Rashard Mendenhall came into Week 12’s matchup as the Steelers starting running back, but that appears to have changed if the team’s recently released depth chart is any indication.
Ed Bouchette tweets that Jonathan Dwyer is now listed as the team’s starting running back, while Mendenhall has dropped to No. 3 behind Issac Redman. The fact that Mendenhall fumbled twice probably played a role in the team making this decision, but it’s worth mentioning that depth charts aren’t always the best indication of players’ usage.
Dwyer has at least earned enough respect to takeover as the Steelers starting running back for Week 13’s game against Baltimore.
