Steelers place Mendenhall on IR and re-sign cornerback Anthony Madison

PSR Logo
Cornerback Anthony Madison, who joined the Steelers in 2006 and has been with the team on and off since then, will replace injured running back Rashard Mendenhall on the team's active roster.

The Steelers have placed fourth-year running back Rashard Mendenhall on their Reserve/Injured List, the team announced today. Mendenhall suffered a season-ending knee injury in the team’s regular-season finale at Cleveland in Week 17.

Mendenhall finished shy of his third consecutive 1,000-yard rushing season as he finished the 2011 campaign with 928 yards on 228 attempts. He added nine rushing touchdowns and two 100-yard rushing performances on the year. Mendenhall has 3,367 rushing yards and 29 rushing touchdowns in his four years with Pittsburgh.

To fill Mendenhall’s spot on the active roster, the Steelers re-signed veteran cornerback Anthony Madison, who originally signed with the team as an undrafted rookie free agent in 2006. He spent time on Pittsburgh’s active roster and practice squad in each of his six seasons, but he also was active with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2006), Cleveland Browns (2009), Indianapolis Colts (2009) and most recently the Detroit Lions (2011).

Madison will wear No. 37.

Josh Bell had not hit a walk-off home run since he was a member of the Altoona Curve in 2015. He changed that Friday with a soaring shot for the left field loonies.
