According to coach Mike Tomlin, Rashard Mendenhall has "accepted" his one-game suspension for conduct detrimental to the team.
"He looks forward to coming back and re-joining this team and being a positive contribution to our efforts the rest of the way," Tomlin said. "Obviously there is frustration with this situation, understandably, but we all have a job to do." Tomlin's words are an indication Mendenhall will be back for Week 16, but he's likely to remain a healthy scratch. Mendenhall can be dropped in all redraft leagues.
