  • Kerrith Whyte: Joins Jaguars' practice squad

    Whyte signed with the Jaguars' practice squad Monday, Doug Kyed of Pro Football Focus reports.

  • Kerrith Whyte: Let go by Bills

    Buffalo cut Whyte on Monday, Marcel Louis-Jacques of reports.

  • Bills' Kerrith Whyte: Links up with Buffalo

    Whyte signed with Buffalo on Monday, Maddy Glab of the Bills' official site reports.

    The Bills have two RB camp competitors temporarily on the shelf in Antonio Williams (neck) and Christian Wade (shoulder), so Whyte will get a late chance to state his case for a depth role. Whyte was drafted in the seventh round by the Bears in 2019 and will now by working for his fourth team. He was the college teammate of the Bills' current top back, Devin Singletary.

  • Kerrith Whyte: Lands on practice squad IR

  • Kerrith Whyte: Signs with practice squad

    The Lions signed Whyte to the practice squad Wednesday.

    The Steelers cut Whyte on Saturday, but the versatile RB/WR/KR found a new landing spot. With Kenny Golladay (hamstring) and Danny Amendola (hamstring) battling injuries, Whyte serves as additional depth going into Week 1.

  • Kerrith Whyte: Let go by Pittsburgh

    Whyte was waived by the Steelers on Saturday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

    Whyte played in six games with the Steelers, though most of that was as a kick returner. The arrival of Ray-Ray McCloud basically pushed Whyte aside, though it's entirely possible the scatback could be a part of the team's practice squad plans if he passes through waivers.

  • Steelers' Kerrith Whyte: Returning kicks during scrimmage

    Whyte (groin) returned kicks during Friday's scrimmage, Brooke Pryor of reports.

    Head coach Mike Tomlin relayed that Whyte was day-to-day earlier Friday, but the 23-year-old running back's work as a returner should mean he's good to go moving forward. It'll be tough for Whyte to secure a roster spot this year, but perhaps a strong showing as a returner can do the trick.

  • Steelers' Kerrith Whyte: Remains sidelined Friday

    Head coach Mike Tomlin said Whyte (groin) is day-to-day after missing Friday's practice, Tribune-Review Sports reports.

    Whyte exited Tuesday's practice with a groin injury and hasn't returned to the practice field yet, but Tomlin appears optimistic that he can make it back soon. The 23-year-old has an uphill climb to make the roster spot since the Steelers drafted Anthony McFarland in April, and any missed practice time works against his odds.

  • Steelers' Kerrith Whyte: Managing groin injury

    Whyte suffered a groin injury during Tuesday's practice, Brooke Pryor of reports.

    Whyte was forced to leave Tuesday's practice early due to the injury, per Pryor. He's competing for a depth role in Pittsburgh's crowded backfield.

  • Steelers' Kerrith Whyte: Non-factor on offense

    Whyte ran for one yard on three carries in Sunday's 28-10 loss to the Ravens.

    Even with James Conner (quadriceps) inactive, Whyte played a minimal role on offense and finishes the 2019 season with 122 yards on 24 carries in six games. Most of that (84 yards) came in two games in which he also caught his only target for nine yards. The Steelers' backfield is unsettled heading into 2020, but Whyte is unlikely to have a major role.

  • Steelers' Kerrith Whyte: Six carries as Conner gets injured

    Whyte rushed six times for 22 yards and wasn't targeted in the passing game in Sunday's 16-10 loss to the Jets.

    It's not saying much, but Whyte was the team's most effective option on the ground after James Conner exited with a thigh injury. Whyte had eight more rushing yards on one carry fewer than Benny Snell, while Jaylen Samuels mixed in with seven yards on three carries and 32 more yards on four catches. Even if Conner sits against the Ravens in Week 17, none of the Steelers' other running backs will be advisable options, as nobody has been able to grab the job by the horns.

  • Steelers' Kerrith Whyte: Usage take a hit

    Whyte ran for five yards on two carries in Pittsburgh's 17-10 loss to Buffalo on Sunday night.

    Signed just one month ago to provide depth in Pittsburgh's beleaguered running game, it should come as no surprise that Whyte's role would be greatly diminished by the return of James Conner. At this point there is little reason to have Whyte on fantasy rosters.

  • Steelers' Kerrith Whyte: Totals 50 yards from scrimmage

    Whyte totaled 41 yards on five carries and caught his only target for nine yards in Pittsburgh's 23-17 win over Arizona on Sunday.

    Benny Snell continues to be the primary running back with James Conner (shoulder) still unable to play, but Whyte seems to have pulled even with -- if not ahead of -- Jaylen Samuels in the ground game. In the past three games, Whyte has rushed 14 times for 94 yards compared to 54 yards on 16 carries for Samuels. The anticipated return of Conner in Week 15 against the Bills could diminish Whyte's fantasy value while Samuels could still play a role in the passing game.
