Steelers running backs do little in relief of Le'Veon Bell Saturday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1/3/2015) Steelers running backs Josh Harris and Ben Tate were able to find little running room in Saturday's 30-17 loss to Baltimore. Harris ran nine times for 25 yards while Tate had five carries for 19 yards.

As a team, Pittsburgh managed just 68 yards on 19 carries in relief of star running back Le'Veon Bell, who missed Saturday's game with a knee injury.


Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell officially ruled out for wild-card game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1/2/2015) Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell was officially ruled out for Saturday's pivotal wild-card game against the Ravens because of a hyperextended right knee.

Bell sustained the injury in the final week of the regular season against Cincinnati and was not able to practice this week leading up to Pittsburgh's first playoff game since 2011. Bell rushed for 1,361 yards this season, second only to DeMarco Murray. He also caught 83 passes for 854 yards. The Steelers are planning to start Josh Harris in his place, per the NFL Network.

The Steelers are 3-point home favorites Saturday night.


Steelers' Josh Harris ready for more reps if starting RB is sidelined


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/1/2015) Steelers running back Josh Harris would see an increased role -- and might even start -- during Saturday's playoff game against the Ravens, if starting running back Le'Veon Bell is unable to play due to a hyperextended right knee. 

"Josh is ready," Bell said, per ESPN. "I’ve been watching him all year and I know what he’s capable of. You got a little glimpse of him (in) the Bengals game. He’s explosive. He knows all of his assignments. He’s not out there thinking any more. He’s just playing football. He’s only going to get better." 

If Bell is out, Harris would likely share reps with Dri Archer and perhaps even newly signed running back Ben Tate. However, Harris is ready for whatever role might await him Saturday.

"It’s tough because I just sit at home and say I wish that we could play now," Harris said. "I’m just going to take full advantage of the (preparation) time. I want to be that guy who, when he had his shot he did all he could to help out this team."

The Steelers opened Saturday's wild-card game as 3 1/2-point favorites. As of Thursday, they were 3-point favorites, per VegasInsider.com.


Big Ben: Can't expect much from Ben Tate this week


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(12/31/2014) Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger said it's unrealistic to expect a lot from newly-signed running back Ben Tate in Saturday's playoff game against the Ravens.

“I don’t know how you could come in in a couple of days and learn a new offense,” Roethlisberger told ESPN.com. “I think if we can put together a specific package, a few runs here, a few passes there, I think he could help us if we need him to.”

If starter Le'Veon Bell (knee) can't play, rookie running back Josh Harris would start and be spelled by rookie Dri Archer and Tate. Harris, an undrafted free agent out of Wake Forest, rushed five times for 7 yards Week 17 but had a 59-yard run called back on a penalty.

The Steelers are 3-point home favorites.


With Le'Veon Bell injured, Steelers sign RB Ben Tate


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(12/30/2014) The Steelers announced they signed free agent running back Ben Tate, and he's expected to be in uniform Saturday night when Pittsburgh hosts Baltimore in the playoffs.

The Steelers needed a running back with Le'Veon Bell looking unlikely to play. Bell sustained a hyperextended knee Sunday night against the Bengals.

Tate joins Josh Harris and Dri Archer in the backfield after playing eight games for the Browns and Vikings this year. To make room on the roster, Pittsburgh released wideout Justin Brown.

The Steelers are 3-point favorites over the Ravens.


Tomlin: RB Bell won't necessarily play if medically cleared


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(12/30/2014) Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said running back Le'Veon Bell rode a stationary bike Tuesday as he tries to recover from the hyperextended knee he suffered Sunday night. Whether Bell plays Saturday night against the Ravens will depend on how he feels and how effective he can be, not on whether he gains medical clearance, Tomlin said, per the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

If Bell, a superior receiver, can't play, the Steelers could play third downs without a running back, Tomlin acknowledged. Pittsburgh will go with Josh Harris and Dri Archer at running back and might sign free agent Ben Tate, who visited Tuesday.

The Steelers are favored by 3.


Report: Steelers hosting RB Ben Tate


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(12/30/2014) With running back Le'Veon Bell (hyperextended knee) uncertain to play in Saturday's playoff game against the Ravens, the Steelers are bringing in running back Ben Tate for a visit Tuesday, reports ESPN's Adam Schefter. Pittsburgh is expected to sign Tate if the visit goes well, the report said.

Tate played in eight games for the Browns and Vikings this season, rushing for 333 yards and four touchdowns. As of now, Josh Harris and Dri Archer would be the Steelers' main ballcarriers if Bell can't play.

The Steelers are favored by 3 at most sportsbooks.


Steelers not reluctant to use both Archer, Harris behind Bell


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/25/2014) Steelers coach Mike Tomlin would not reveal to reporters whether Dri Archer or Josh Harris will get more carries behind starter Le'Veon Bell, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette on Tuesday. The Steelers parted ways with LeGarrette Blount over the bye week and now have two rookie running backs behind Bell. Tomlin added that he's not reluctant to use both rookie backs.

"Everyone is probably excited to watch them and see what they can do," Tomlin said.


RB Josh Harris up with Steelers


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Falcons extend two players


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst

Goodwin and Derek Moye, offensive lineman Alejandro Villanueva, defensive backs Shaquille Richardson and Ross Ventrone, defensive linemen Josh Mauro and Nick Williams, running back Josh Harris, tight end Rob Blanchflower and linebacker Howard Jones to their practice squad.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3:12 pm ET) The Steelers announced their final round of cuts to trim the roster to 53 players Saturday, as they parted ways with 22 players.

The Steelers released defensive backs Isaiah Green, Dayonne Nunley, Shaquille Richardson and Ross Ventrone, linebackers Chris Carter, Howard Jones and Dan Molls, and defensive linemen Ethan Hemer, Josh Mauro, Roy Philon and Nick Williams on the defensive side of the ball. On offense, the team cut tight ends Rob Blanchflower, Bryce Davis and David Paulson, running backs Josh Harris and Stephen Houston, wide receivers Derek Moye and Lanear Sampson, offensive linemen Graham Pocic, Will Simmons and Guy Whimper, and quarter Brendon Kay.
