Steelers focused on Super Bowl title No. 7

The Steelers return 20 of 22 starters, which makes them strong contenders to repeat as Super Bowl champions.

Taylor restructures contract to help Steelers

Steelers starting cornerback Ike Taylor has restructured his contract to create more salary cap space.

Fantasy owners lose RB Mendenhall

Heinz Field was littered with the remains of broken running backs on Monday night.

The Steelers were already down Willie Parker heading into their game against Baltimore, so losing Rashard Mendenhall for the season puts a serious dent into their backfield depth. The rookie fractured his left shoulder during the overtime win and was placed on injured reserve.

Two TDs for Willie Parker

So much for Rashard Mendenhall hurting the fantasy value of Willie Parker.

The veteran has already rushed for two touchdowns (7, 13) in the first half against the Houston Texans. Mendenhall hasn’t seen a single carry in the contest.
