Steelers Sights and Sounds: Najee Harris, Jaylen Warren Work Stiff Arms
PITTSBURGH — The Steelers running backs were hard at work on Thursday for the third OTA practice of the week. Among those were third-year running back Najee Harris and standout second-year running back Jaylen Warren, who worked alongside the rest of the group to hone their games.
Running backs coach Eddie Faulkner and the offense will need the running backs to be the bastion of the offense that seeks to make first down the most important down of the game for them. George Pickens and other receivers talked about the need to make the running game a key part of what allows the passing game to create explosive plays for second-year quarterback Steelers QB Kenny Pickett.
Warren sports a new physique that makes him look absolutely jacked. Harris looks as big as he ever has, and is primed for a strong year three behind a strong offensive line. Meanwhile, others such as Alfonzo Graham, Anthony McFarland, and Jason Huntley are continuing to compete for the RB3 spot behind those two as they are heavily entrenched. Whoever comes out of that group, potentially as the return man as well, will likely earn a roster spot after the team thus far has decided to not bring back Benny Snell.
