The Steelers were hopeful that running back Najee Harris avoided a serious injury when he left Sunday’s overtime win over the Bengals and it appears that hope has been realized.

Harris hurt his foot, which was cause for concern given the Lisfranc injury that Harris dealt with this summer. Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that all tests came back negative on Monday, however, and that the current feeling is that Harris will be ready to go against the Patriots in Week Two.

Harris ran 10 times for 23 yards and caught two passes for three yards and a touchdown before exiting the game.

While the Steelers got positive news on Harris, they’re still waiting for further word on how long linebacker T.J. Watt will be out after tearing his pec on Sunday.

  1. They’re going to run him into the ground if that offense can’t open anything up. Jaylen Warren looks like a heck of a blocker, but I don’t think he’s going to be able to do much to give Najee a rest.

  2. This should be an interesting game. However, someone needs to explain to me how The Patriots lost to the Dolphins, and The Steelers beat the AFC Champions on the road. But Pittsburgh is -1 at home against the Patriots. This makes no sense.

  3. Never like to hear about players getting hurt although football is a very violent sport so UNFORTUNATELY it’s to be expected…. It especially stinks when it’s a really exciting player to watch like TJ… least it’s good news for Najee Harris…..what’s also interesting is that EVERY STARTING PLAYER is so valuable to their team no matter what the role they play as can be testified by the situation the Bengals found themselves in….. it literally cost them the game in regulation by not having their long snapper available to them….

  4. Patriots are toast. We dominated the Bengals. This should be an easy win for us, which is good because our starters need the rest. Honestly, I’m looking at this schedule, and I don’t see any games that I think we will lose. Would love the be the first team to go 20-0. Steelers gonna roll!!
