PITTSBURGH — Pressley Harvin III is the Steelers punter. He’s not a kicker, and he hasn’t been since high school.
So when he was nearly called into duty two weeks ago when Steelers kicker Chris Boswell was injured against the Cleveland Browns, Harvin didn’t have a lot of faith in his ability to come through with a field goal or an extra point.
The Steelers chose not to use him, going for it on every fourth-down or extra-point opportunity, and Harvin doesn’t seem too upset about that, emphasizing the difference between punting and kicking.
Harvin was called into action for two kickoff, which he said went so-so. One went out of bounds, while the other was returned, but the returner was tackled inside the 25.
