Steelers add running back to practice squad


The Steelers lost running back Le’Veon Bell during Round One with the Bengals. They may not have running back DeAngelo Williams for Round Three.

While the Steelers have yet to add another running back to a depth chart that includes only tailbacks Fitzgerald Toussaint and Jordan Todman and fullback Will Johnson, the Steelers on Tuesday signed running back Abou Toure to the practice squad.

Toure, who played college football at Tennessee-Martin, was undrafted in 2015. He spent time with the Colts and Cardinals this year, appearing in three preseason games with the Colts.

The Steelers also have running back Rajion Neal on the practice squad.

Toure had a tryout on Tuesday with the Steelers, along with guard Lamar Mady and defensive end Brian Mihalik. Neither of the other two were signed, to the active roster or the practice squad.

    DeAngelo won’t play. Book it.

    Meanwhile, “The Team That No One Wants To Face In the Playoffs” (trademark) has the lowly Ravens laughing hysterically.

    Not that I’m requesting Ben Tate… But these moves say a lot about how far and fast he fell from grace… He’s familiar with this offense and they have ZERO interest in him… Crazy….

    Toure de Force! I love it.

    But hopefully we get deangelo back for round 2

    Abou Toure and Fitzgerald Toussaint.

    And with that the Steelers win the best player-names contest. And it ain’t close.
