The Pittsburgh Steelers currently have a few running backs dealing with injuries and on Wednesday they signed another one to their practice squad to help them get through the short week.
Signed to the practice squad on Wednesday was running back Darrin Hall, who played his college football at the University of Pittsburgh. He rushed for 2189 yards and 21 touchdowns on 381 total carries during his college career and caught 38 passes for another 267 yards and a touchdown.
Hall went undrafted this year and was signed by the Cleveland Browns. He then went on to spend time with the Cincinnati Bengals and Green Bay Packers during the summer.
Steelers running backs James Conner (shoulder) and Benny Snell Jr. are both currently dealing with injuries sustained Monday night against the Miami Dolphins that have them questionable for Sunday’s home game against the Indianapolis Colts. The Steelers should get Jaylen Samuels back this week from his two-game absence and they also have running back Trey Edmunds on their 53-man roster as a backup. Rookie running back Tony Brooks-James is also on the practice squad.
The Steelers released tight end Kevin Rader to make room for Hall on the practice squad.
We have released TE Kevin Rader and have signed RB Darrin Hall to our practice squad.
