Steelers place Jeremy McNichols on IR, sign Master Teague

USA TODAY Sports

The Steelers added running back Jeremy McNichols just over a week ago. But an injury has already sidelined him.

Pittsburgh announced on Wednesday that McNichols has been placed on injured reserve. He had suffered a shoulder injury that head coach Mike Tomlin had said was being evaluated earlier this week.

McNichols accounted for 396 yards from scrimmage and one touchdown for Tennessee last year.

To add some depth back to the running backs room behind Najee Harris, Pittsburgh signed Master Teague III. Teague, an undrafted rookie out of Ohio State, played 31 collegiate games, rushing for 1,764 yards and 17 touchdowns. He was a second-team All-Big Ten honoree in 2020.

  1. It seems like most of their roster would rather move to IR, rather than play for the Steelers.

    Kid, you’re a broken record and your quarterback is Deshaun Watson.

  3. Ohio State had an all-time great name running back room. Trey Sermon. Master Teague. Steele Chambers. Hope Teague does well enough in Pittsburgh to get cut after the preseason, sign on with an NFC team, and run wild.

  4. Hard to believe he wasn’t already on a team. I like it will be a good 1-2 punch
