Rashard Mendenhall’s Arms Work … Both of Them

Between stuffing his face with bear claws and talking porn (seriously), chubby Pittsburgh radio personality Mark Madden announced on-air Friday afternoon that, according to reports, Steelers running back Rashard Mendenhall had broken his arm and would miss 6-to-8 weeks (insidepghsports tweeted the same before deleting it).

That’s a huge blow for a team already thin at the position, and it can only mean one thing: expect Willie Parker to make his triumphant return to Western Penn–wait, what? Mendenhall’s fine? REALLY?

Madden, it turns out, was misinformed. Various outlets promptly refuted the rumors and Ryan Clark even tweeted that, “We didn’t even wear pads today. So Mendy hurting his arm shouldn’t have happen.”

So, yeah, nice detective work Tub-o-Goo.

In unrelated news, R.I.P., Terry Bradshaw. You’ll be missed.

    This article’s headline is misleading.

    Rashard Mendenhall’s Arm Bones are Not Broken… None of Them

    And here I was expecting to read about steps taken to fix the dropsies (the fumble kind, bot the edema kind).

    Intropy,

    I actually thought about that after I posted it. Because, yes, technically Rashard’s arms are functioning, but he’s still not afraid to drop-kick the ball down the field every 15 carries or so.

    Please don’t do that to me again….I’m still in Vegas and start getting Twitter messages that Mendy is hurt…..ok….back to the pool and then the Casino

    Idiocy: the Madden curse.

    I love it when people delete their posts…at least face up to your mistake.

    Neal,

    The best part is that Ed Bouchette cited Bleacher Report as an example of shitty online journalism. That’s like saying the Steelers special teams has been a train wreck. Yeah, no kidding, Eddie. I mean, the writing alone on Bleacher Report should be enough to clue you into the fact that’s it’s probably not the go-to source for news.
