    Steelers' Benny Snell: Limited role once again

    Benny Snell recorded two carries for one yard in Sunday's 26-17 loss to the Raiders.Snell was utilized exclusively on special teams in last week's season opener, and he saw minimal offensive work in Week 2. Rookie running back Najee Harris played 95 percent of the Pittsburgh Steelers' offensive snaps Sunday after he was on the field for every snap last week, so Snell's playing time should remain limited.

    Steelers' Benny Snell: Doesn't play on offense Week 1

    Benny Snell logged 19 special-teams snaps during Sunday's 23-16 win over the Bills.Snell failed to see any snaps on offense, as rookie running back Najee Harris was on the field for 100 percent of the team's plays. Though Snell currently sits second on the depth chart, Harris' three-down skill set will likely make it hard for the veteran to see enough action to maintain fantasy relevance.

    Steelers' Benny Snell: Eight carries in preseason debut

    Benny Snell carried the ball eight times for 28 yards and also recorded one reception on one target for four yards in Friday's preseason game against the Panthers.Snell had not participated in any of the team's preseason contests to this point and also missed significant periods of practice due to a lower body injury. He was the first back on the field for Pittsburgh -- Najee Harris did not play -- and participated on offense at various points in every quarter. The highlight of Snell's performance came midway through the second quarter, when he ripped off a 17-yard run. Snell's inability to stay on the field during training camp has him on the roster bubble, though he could also enter the regular season as the primary backup to Harris.

    Steelers' Benny Snell: Should play this week

    Head coach Mike Tomlin said Benny Snell (lower body) will play in Friday's preseason game against Carolina, Brooke Pryor of ESPN.com reports.Snell has been in and out of practice throughout August and hasn't played in any of the Pittsburgh Steelers' exhibitions. It's hard to say where he stands on the depth chart, as competition for backfield roles appears open behind first-round pick and presumed starter Najee Harris, who will be held out of Friday's preseason contest. Snell still could be the team's No. 2 running back, but it's also possible he gets cut before the Aug. 31 deadline to chop rosters to 53 players.

    Steelers' Benny Snell: No touches in Hall of Fame Game

    Benny Snell didn't record any touches in the Pittsburgh Steelers' 16-3 win over the Cowboys in Thursday's Hall of Fame Game.Najee Harris is in line to serve as the Steelers' lead back to begin the regular season, and he started Thursday's contest and recorded eight touches. Jaylen Samuels, Kalen Ballage and Anthony McFarland all recorded carries behind Harris, but Snell was left out of the offensive mix in the preseason opener.

    Steelers' Benny Snell: On roster bubble

    Benny Snell isn't assured a spot on the Pittsburgh Steelers' roster to begin the 2021 season, Brooke Pryor of ESPN.com reports.Snell had the chance to secure the starting job at running back last year while James Conner was sidelined, but the 23-year-old averaged just 3.3 yards per carry during the 2020 campaign. The 2019 fourth-rounder enters training camp as a clear backup after the Steelers drafted Najee Harris with the 24th overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, but he could be in danger of losing his roster spot if newcomer Kalen Ballage is able to carve out a role in the team's offense. Also battling for backfield slotting will be Anthony McFarland and Jaylen Samuels.
