PITTSBURGH -- Rashard Mendenhall, the Steelers' leading rusher the previous three seasons, is a healthy scratch for the second straight week. He was benched last week after fumbling twice on four carries in Cleveland.
"Rashard will get an opportunity to redeem himself, I'm sure, at some point along this journey," head coach Mike Tomlin said Tuesday.
Other notes include cornerback Cortez Allen making his first NFL start in place of the injured Ike Taylor (ankle), Kelvin Beachum making his second start at right tackle and linebacker Jason Worilds filling in for LaMarr Woodley, who was ruled out Friday with an ankle injury.
