  • Steelers' Benny Snell: Doesn't play on offense

    Snell didn't record any touches during the Steelers' 24-20 loss to the Jets on Sunday.

    Snell played 69 percent of Pittsburgh's snaps on special teams Sunday, but he was held off the field offensively for a third consecutive week. The 2019 fourth-rounder is firmly behind Najee Harris and Jaylen Warren on the Steelers' depth chart.

  • Steelers' Benny Snell: Limited to special-teams work again

    Snell didn't record any touches during the Steelers' 29-17 loss to the Browns on Thursday.

    For a second consecutive week, Snell didn't play any offensive snaps and was limited to special-teams work. The 24-year-old hasn't yet recorded any touches this season and is unlikely to see much work behind Najee Harris and Jaylen Warren.

  • Steelers' Benny Snell: Plays exclusively on special teams

    Snell didn't record any touches during the Steelers' 17-14 loss to New England on Sunday.

    Snell was on the field for 73 percent of Pittsburgh's snaps on special teams Sunday, but he didn't play any offensive snaps during the narrow loss. The 2019 fourth-rounder hasn't yet touched the ball over the first two weeks of the regular season, and it seems unlikely that he'll see significant work in the Steelers' offense as long as Najee Harris and Jaylen Warren are healthy.

  • Steelers' Benny Snell: Operates as clear No. 3 back

    Snell didn't record any touches during Sunday's 23-20 overtime win over the Bengals.

    Snell was listed as the No. 3 running back on the Steelers' Week 1 depth chart, and his usage against Cincinnati was consistent with that layout. Although Najee Harris sustained a foot injury late in Sunday's matchup, Jaylen Warren was the running back who replaced him down the stretch, while Snell played exclusively on special teams during the season opener. Harris' injury isn't believed to be a serious concern, but his Week 2 status isn't yet clear. Even if Harris is limited or held out Sunday against the Patriots, Warren likely would see most of the work in the backfield, while Snell presumably would be forced to settle for a reserve role.

  • Steelers' Benny Snell: Buried on Week 1 depth chart

    Snell is listed as the No. 3 running back on the Steelers' Week 1 depth chart, Teresa Varley of the team's official site reports.

    Although Snell earned a spot on the 53-man roster over Anthony McFarland, undrafted rookie Jaylen Warren appears poised to begin the season as the team's top backup behind starting running back Najee Harris. Snell rushed just 36 times for 98 yards while securing two of four targets for 13 yards despite appearing in every game for the Steelers last season, and he's unlikely to have a significant fantasy role in 2022 as long as Harris remains healthy.

  • Steelers' Benny Snell: Secures spot on final roster

    Snell is included on Pittsburgh's 53-man roster ahead of the 2022 regular season, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports.

    Snell was relatively quiet during the preseason after recovering from a knee injury, as he rushed eight times for 13 yards while securing two of three targets for 15 yards and a touchdown over two appearances. However, he was still able to fend off Anthony McFarland for a spot on the 53-man roster. Najee Harris will serve as Pittsburgh's clear lead back again, and it's possible that Snell has to settle for a No. 3 role in the Steelers' backfield after undrafted rookie Jaylen Warren earned a roster spot following a strong offseason.

  • Steelers' Benny Snell: Still competing for roster spot

    Snell is still competing for a spot on the Steelers' 53-man roster ahead of Sunday's preseason finale against the Lions, Chris Adamski of TribLive.com reports.

    Snell served as Pittsburgh's No. 2 running back last year, but he isn't guaranteed a roster spot as a backup running back in 2022. He sat out the preseason opener against Seattle due to a knee injury and was relatively quiet during the matchup against Jacksonville, rushing three times for minus-two yards while securing two of three targets for 15 yards and a touchdown. Snell's chances for a roster spot are improved by his abilities on special teams, but he'll still have to fend off Anthony McFarland and Jaylen Warren as the preseason draws to a close.

  • Steelers' Benny Snell: Reaches end zone against Jaguars

    Snell rushed three times for minus-two yards while securing two of three targets for 15 yards and a touchdown during the Steelers' 16-15 preseason win over the Jaguars on Saturday.

    Snell drew the start during Saturday's preseason matchup, and he caught an 11-yard touchdown pass late in the first half. The 2019 fourth-rounder split time in the backfield with Jaylen Warren during the first half. Warren recorded 27 yards from scrimmage on six touches, but Snell was one of two Steelers to reach the end zone during the narrow win. Snell and Warren will likely continue to compete to serve as Pittsburgh's No. 2 running back ahead of the regular season.

  • Steelers' Benny Snell: Returns to practice

    Snell (knee) recently returned to practice, Chris Adamski of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.

    Snell dealt with a right knee injury late last week and didn't appear in Saturday's preseason win over Seattle. However, he now appears to be healthy once again. The 2019 fourth-rounder will likely have a chance to garner some playing time during Saturday's preseason matchup against the Jaguars as he competes with Anthony McFarland and Jaylen Warren for a role behind Najee Harris in the Steelers' backfield.

  • 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 ESPN.com 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.
