Feb. 14 (Bloomberg) -- Pittsburgh Steelers running back Rashard Mendenhall might not be ready to play in the 2012 National Football League season after tearing a knee ligament in the team’s final regular-season game in January, General Manager Kevin Colbert said on the team’s website.

Colbert said he typically expects players with Mendenhall’s injury, a torn anterior cruciate ligament, to miss a full year. Mendenhall was injured in a game against the Cleveland Browns on Jan. 1.

Mendenhall, 24, was the Steelers’ leading rusher for the past three seasons.
