Steelers Release RB Kerrith Whyte, Jr.



The Steelers have released running back Kerrith Whyte, the team announced on Saturday.

Whyte, 23, joined the Steelers mid-season in 2019. He was signed to the practice squad on Nov. 16 and promoted to the active roster on Dec. 8.

In six games, Whyte showed promise, averaging a team-high 5.1 yards per carry. He finished with 122 yards on 24 carries in 2019.

This season, he failed to distinguish himself from a deep group of running backs, losing his spot to fourth-round rookie Anthony McFarland, Jr.

Whyte is the tenth player to be released by the Steelers since the end of training camp on Friday, joining cornerback Trajan Bandy, defensive end Henry Mondeaux, defensive tackle Cavon Walker, outside linebacker Tuzar Skipper, punter Corliss Waitman, quarterback Paxton Lynch, tight end Kyle Markway and wide receiver Ryan Switzer.
