  • Toussaint (leg) signed with the Steelers' practice squad Sunday, Chris Adamski of TribLive.com reports. Toussaint was released on Saturday after being buried on the team's running back depth chart, but he'll remain with the organization. Given his versatile skill set, Toussaint is a good tailback for Pittsburgh to keep around in case star Le'Veon Bell goes down with an injury at any point this season.

  • Toussaint (leg) was cut by the Steelers on Saturday, the team's official site reports. This comes as a minor surprise, considering the Steelers are left with two power backs (James Conner and Terrell Watson) behind starter Le'Veon Bell. Toussaint's pass-catching ability would come in handy in the event of a Bell injury, but it seems Watson made a strong impression with his powerful running during the preseason. The Steelers likely will check in on Toussaint if anything happens to Bell during the season. There hasn't been anything to suggest Toussaint's leg injury is serious.

  • Toussaint had one reception for three yards against Indianapolis on Saturday before exiting with a left leg injury. Knile Davis got the start, with Toussaint having to wait until Pittsburgh's fourth offensive possession before seeing his only touch of the game. Le'Veon Bell (groin) and rookie James Conner are 1-2 respectively on the depth chart, with Toussaint, Davis, Terrell Watson and Trey Williams all competing for roster spots. If Toussaint is cleared, each running back should have one final opportunity to impress head coach Mike Tomlin in the final preseason game Thursday against Carolina.

  • Toussaint got the start in Friday's preseason opener against the Giants, rushing six times for 19 yards and failing to haul in his lone target. Toussaint played the whole first quarter, but was outperformed by both Knile Davis and Terrell Watson. If he can hold both of them and James Conner off during the preseason, the 27-year-old running back out of Michigan will be one Le'Veon Bell injury away from the starting job.

  • With Le'Veon Bell not in camp and James Conner banged up, Toussaint sits atop the Steelers' initial depth chart posted on the team's official site. Once healthy, Conner, who is listed among the Steelers "not participating" in practice, is slated to compete with Toussaint for the right to back up Bell, the team's undisputed starter. Even when Bell reports to the team, his track record of missing games suggests that whomever wins the top backup role would have high insurance value. If Conner can get healthy soon, it's not hard to imagine him overtaking Toussaint, thus making him a strong fantasy handcuff option.
