David Sabino: What to expect from Rashard Mendenhall

Sidelined players continue to pile up in the preseason, making fantasy football draft choices even more challenging. The Cardinals lost running back Ryan Williams to a torn patella tendon in his knee that puts the ball squarely into the hands of Beanie Wells and (for now at least) makes new No. 2 tailback LaRod Stephens-Howling a possible late-round pickup. Jets starter Shonn Greene has a mysterious foot infection that could make LaDainian Tomlinson a great early-season flex option and also also crack the door open for Joe McKnight to show that he belongs. New Orleans may be without top run stopper Aubrayo Franklin, formerly of the 49ers, due to a sprained MCL that could linger into the regular season. If the injury is prolonged, it would surely knock the Saints D/ST down a few spots. And then there's the wildly talented Kenny Britt, who just couldn't seem to stay out of trouble during the offseason and is now staring down a yet-undetermined Roger Goodell imposed suspension. Meanwhile, his fragile quarterback Matt Hasselbeck has already been knocked out of a game even before they've started to count.
