  • Steelers' Benny Snell: Not likely to suit up Saturday

    Snell (knee) is unlikely to play in Saturday's preseason game versus the Seahawks, Brooke Pryor of reports.

    Snell took a seat at Thursday's practice, where he was seen with a large wrap on his right knee. That was scaled down to a sleeve by Saturday, but he wasn't in uniform ahead of the contest. It's unclear if top running back Najee Harris will join Snell in street clothes, but if both sit out, the Steelers backfield will consist of Anthony McFarland, Jaylen Warren, Mataeo Durant and Master Teague.

  • Steelers' Benny Snell: Not practicing Thursday

    Snell (knee) wasn't spotted at Thursday's practice, Brooke Pryor of reports.

    Pryor notes that Snell left Wednesday's session with a pretty big wrap on his right knee, so he's a candidate to sit out Saturday's preseason opener against the Seahawks. Snell is listed behind top option Najee Harris on the Steelers' posted unofficial depth chart, with Anthony McFarland, Jaylen Warren, Mataeo Durant and Master Teague also in the mix for backfield slotting.

  • Steelers' Benny Snell: Works with starters at goal line

    Snell worked with the Steelers' first-team offense during goal-line drills at Monday's practice, Mark Kaboly of The Athletic reports.

    Snell lost weight during the offseason and has impressed over the first week of training camp. While Najee Harris is in line to serve as the Steelers' lead back this year, Snell was on the field with the first-team offense during Monday's goal-line drills. None of the team's backup running backs carved out a meaningful fantasy role behind Harris last year, but it's possible that Snell, Anthony McFarland or Jaylen Warren earn some extra touches in 2022 as the Steelers are attempting to lighten Harris' load.

  • Steelers' Benny Snell: Slims down during offseason

    Snell has trimmed down during the offseason, Mark Kaboly of The Athletic reports.

    While Snell's new weight isn't yet clear, his frame now resembles a build more typical of a running back. The 24-year-old averaged a career-low 2.7 yards per carry last season. However, he should have the chance to compete during training camp for the No. 2 job at running back behind Najee Harris, who established himself as the team's three-down back as a rookie last year.

  • Steelers' Benny Snell: Posts 12 carries in Week 18

    Snell rushed 12 times for 22 yards in Sunday's 16-13 overtime win over the Ravens.

    The 2019 fourth-rounder recorded double-digit touches for the first time this year after Najee Harris sustained an elbow injury on the team's first drive. However, Snell struggled mightily with efficiency and averaged just 1.8 yards per carry. Harris returned to Sunday's matchup after suffering his injury, and it wouldn't be surprising to see him available for the team's wild-card matchup against Kansas City on Sunday. Snell appeared in all 17 regular-season games this year and rushed 36 times for 98 yards while hauling in two of four targets for 13 yards.

  • Steelers' Benny Snell: Six touches in loss

    Snell totaled five carries for 20 yards while securing his lone target for six yards in Sunday's 36-10 loss to Kansas City.

    The Steelers failed to generate much offensive production in Sunday's blowout loss, but this allowed Snell to see some action in the second half. His six touches in Week 16 represented his highest total of the season, but he's had a minimal impact behind rookie Najee Harris for most of the year.

  • Steelers' Benny Snell: Musters 13 yards in win

    Snell rushed twice for 13 yards in Sunday's 20-19 win over the Ravens.

    Snell recorded double-digit yardage for the second time this season in Sunday's win, but his workload remained limited behind lead back Najee Harris. Snell played just two offensive snaps and has been a non-factor for the Steelers as depth at running back.

  • Steelers' Benny Snell: Two carries against Bengals

    Snell recorded two carries for five yards in Sunday's 41-10 loss to the Bengals.

    Snell has now recorded two carries in three of the last four weeks, but he's continued to play primarily on special teams. His seven offensive snaps in Sunday's blowout loss ranked fourth among the team's running backs, as Najee Harris (36 snaps), Anthony McFarland (12) and Kalen Ballage (eight) all saw more playing time on the offensive side of the ball.
