Steelers RB Najee Harris Removed from Injury Report, to Play Sunday vs. Chiefs



Najee Harris

Steelers running back Najee Harris has been removed from the team’s injury report and will play in the team’s AFC Wild Card playoff game against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday.

Harris suffered a right elbow injury early in the Steelers’ Week 18 win over the Baltimore Ravens. He was forced from the game, but was able to return late in the contest.

Harris did not practice in either of the team’s first two sessions of the week, but practiced in a full capacity on Friday and was initially listed as questionable.

With Harris apparently ready to go, the only other injury issue facing the Steelers will be whether or not wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster is healthy enough to be activated from the injured reserve list this week.

Harris said he had a PRP shot in his elbow early this week and will not wear a brace on his elbow.
