Pittsburgh Steelers Running Back Avoids Injury

The Pittsburgh Steelers' promising second-year running back should be just fine after a foot injury cost him time in yesterday's win over the Cincinnati Bengals. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Najee Harris underwent tests on his foot Monday and got some positive news:
Harris limped off in the fourth quarter of Sunday afternoon's closely contested game and did not return for overtime. The Steelers prevailed nonetheless, but a pair of injuries to Harris and superstar pass rusher T.J. Watt loomed grimly over the victory. With reports also indicating Watt may not be as hurt as initially thought, the Steelers can breathe a little easier going into Week 2.

Last year's 24th overall pick of the NFL Draft, Harris immediately earned a crucial role for the Steelers as a rookie, compiling 1667 yards from scrimmage and even leading the league in touches. He was primed for another big role this season as a complement to new quarterback Mitchell Trubisky, but got off to a rough start against the Bengals, plodding his way to 26 total yards on 12 combined rushes and receptions. If he's healthy enough to play, he'll have a chance to redeem himself when the Steelers visit the New England Patriots in Week 2.
