Word on Monday was that Steelers running back Najee Harris avoided a serious foot injury when he was hurt in Sunday’s win over the Bengals and Harris confirmed as much on Tuesday.

Harris told Adam Schein of SiriusXM’s Mad Dog Sports Radio that the injury is “nothing too crazy” and that he’ll use Tuesday’s off day to continue healing before he gets back on the field to prepare for the Steelers’ Week Two home game against the Patriots.

“I’ll be back at practice this week. And then I will be playing this weekend,” Harris said.

Harris had 10 carries for 23 yards and caught two passes for three yards and a touchdown while he was on the field in Week One. Jaylen Warren and Benny Snell are on the roster as backup running backs, but wide receiver Chase Claypool was second in rushing attempts with six against the Bengals.

  1. Take the week off, Najee. With Bad back Mac playing QB, and the confused Pats defense, Jaylen Warren & Snell s/b enough to beat Bill’s bewildered bunch.

  2. Pats D is not that confused. They were pretty good against Miami(13 pts). I’ll be surprised if the steelers Crack 20 pts. Still, I’m stunned the Pats opened as favorites.

    I don’t think it matters who the Steelers start. They’re gonna roll the Pats anyway.

    Bellcow backs are dumb in the NFL.

    Dumber still is placing one’s faith in Bill Belichick to draft decent wide receivers, or to win anything of significance if the name on the back of his quarterback’s jersey isn’t spelled “B-R-A-D-Y.”
    If I were you I’d be less worried about Pittsburgh’s running backs and more concerned that Miami apparently has paid off its mortgage, and now owns your team outright.

  5. Doesn’t really matter who plays. You could line up Walter Payton or Jim Brown behind that O line and they still couldn’t crack 50 yards in the game.

  6. they made the playoffs last year. (they got absolutely boat raced…but they did). So wasn’t a complete disaster. It does seem rather curious that Judge and Patricia are primarily in charge of the offense this year. And maybe not coincidentally, scored 7 points in week 1…which is as many as the offense allowed thanks to the scoop & score fumble for a TD.

    It is, however, just week one. Easy to overreact.

  7. Trubisky with the Bears moved the football pretty well against the Patriots in 2018. Now he has better weapons in Pittsburgh. Should be a good game.

  8. I don’t why either Steelers or Patriots fans should be excited about their teams’ prospects for this game or the season in general. At best, they’re both mediocre teams.

    We were up 38-24 before a late touchdown. Trubisky also pulled this Dante hall play out of his back side for a touchdown to make it 17-7 bears early, before we went on a 31-14 run…
