Fitzgerald Toussaint is the Steelers’ starting running back, at least at the moment.
Obviously, the Steelers are hoping that won’t be the case when the regular season starts: They hope Le'Veon Bell, currently unsigned, has signed his franchise tag by the time the season opens in a month. And they also hope rookie third-round draft pick James Conner, who’s currently not listed on the depth chart because he’s not practicing, is healthy enough to go.
If Bell and Conner are good to go, they’d likely be the 1-2 punch at running back, and Toussaint and Davis would be competing for the No. 3 running back job. The early depth chart suggests Toussaint has the lead.
