Karlos Williams has found work again, sort of.
The Steelers announced they signed the former Bills running back to their practice squad Wednesday.
There were reports he was expected to rejoin the Bills, who cut him in August, after he gained a bunch of sympathy pounds and before his four-game suspension for violating the substance abuse policy. But that either wasn’t an option or he simply preferred his chance in Pittsburgh.
He’s certainly been productive when he’s on the field, averaging 5.6 yards per carry last year with the Bills.
The Steelers have three running backs on their active roster now that Le’Veon Bell’s suspension is over, with DeAngelo Williams and Fitzgerald Toussaint in reserve.
His brother, Vince Williams, plays linebacker for the Steelers, giving them a chance at daily reunions.
