The Denver Broncos are going to be without starting running back Montee Ball for the next several weeks due to a groin injury that he suffered this past Sunday. With Ball sidelined, the Broncos auditioned a few running backs Tuesday and one of them was LaRod Stephens-Howling, who was with the Pittsburgh Steelers last season.
Stephens-Howling only played 15 snaps last season for the Steelers as the Pittsburgh product suffered a torn ACL in his right knee in the regular season opener against the Tennessee Titans. That injury required surgery and he was placed on injured reserve as a result.
The Broncos chose not to sign Stephens-Howling following his workout so for now he will remain unemployed.
Stephens-Howling was originally drafted by the Arizona Cardinals in the seventh round of the 2009 NFL Draft. He played four seasons with the Cardinals before signing with the Steelers last offseason as an unrestricted free agent.
