Steelers Re-Sign RB Ralph Webb to Practice Squad



The Steelers have re-signed running back Ralph Webb to their practice squad, the team announced on Tuesday.

Webb, 24, was part of the team’s offseason and training camp rosters after splitting his first professional season between the New England Patriots and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

A 5-foot-10, 200-pound Vanderbilt grad, Webb played in all four preseason games for the Steelers this August and made one start. He finished with 31 carries for 102 yards (3.3 yards per carry) and two touchdowns. Webb also caught five passes for 28 yards and another score.

The Steelers have had an open spot on their practice squad since promoting wide receiver Tevin Jones before the game against the Cleveland Browns on Thursday.

They waived running back Tony-Brooks James after that game in order to make room for another extra wide receiver, as JuJu Smith-Schuster and Diontae Johnson were both injured against the Browns.
