Najee Harris Out for Rest of Game With Abdominal Injury



Steelers RB Najee Harris

INDIANAPOLIS — Pittsburgh Steelers running back Najee Harris left the team’s game against the Indianapolis Colts on Monday night late in the first half with an apparent injury.

Harris limped off the field at Lucas Oil Stadium late in the first half while the Steelers offense was driving for what became a 16-3 halftime lead.

Harris has been dealing with the aftermath of a Lisfranc sprain suffered during training camp. It’s not clear if this injury is related to the previous one to his left foot. 

The team has not yet given an official update on his condition.

He was replaced by a combination of Anthony McFarland Jr. and Benny Snell Jr. Usual backup Jaylen Warren is not dressed for Monday’s game after suffering a hamstring injury in Week 11 against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Harris was in the middle of another strong performance when he left with the injury. He had 10 carries for 35 yards and one catch for four yards in the first half. He had 20 carries in each of his previous two games for 90 and 99 yards, respectively.

McFarland had four carries for 21 yards and Snell had four carries for 26 yards in the first half. Quarterback Kenny Pickett added 34 yards on five carries, as the Steelers rushed for 116 yards as a team in the first 30 minutes.

The Steelers first-round pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, Harris has played in all 27 games for the Steelers since the start of last season.
