The Pittsburgh Steelers will be without starting quarterback Ben Roethlisberger for the foreseeable future, but there is some good news coming out of the Steel City.

Per a source familiar with the situation, starting running back Rashard Mendenhall is expected to return to the Steelers for their AFC North match up against the division rival Baltimore Ravens on Sunday.

Mendenhall has missed the Steelers last four games with an Achilles injury that has been linked to his early return from a torn ACL at the end of last season, but he should be the team’s go-to man this week against the Ravens.
