Steelers Waive OL David Snow Injured, Sign RB Josh Harris

As expected, the Pittsburgh Steelers made a roster move this week as injured offensive lineman David Snow has been waived injured. The team filled the open roster spot by signing running back Josh Harris.

Snow suffered a a fractured foot during Saturday’s practice and the injury will require surgery. After clearing waivers, Snow should revert back to the Steelers injured reserve list.

Harris played his college football at Wake Forest, and went undrafted in the 2014 NFL Draft. He attended mini camp with the Dallas Cowboys on a tryout basis, but failed to get signed. At his Pro Day, Harris measured in at 5’9/7 and weighed 206 pounds. He finished his college career with over 2200 yards and 19 touchdowns.

The Steelers currently have shorter lines at the running back position as Alvester Alexander started off training camp on the PUP list while Le’Veon Bell is currently sidelined with a minor hamstring injury.

    Bleh! Hopefully Bell and Alexander are 100% soon and we can sign someone else.

    I saw Patriots claimed Gaffney when Carolina waived him injured, do Patriots have to carry him on their 53 man roster?

  • Austin Jackson

    Yes, I believe so.

  • PD

    Seems like it would have to be otherwise teams could just claim anyone waived injured and put them on their IR

  • SteelersDepot

    no, they don’t. they will wait until after camp when they are allowed to place him straight on IR without passing him through waivers

  • Kevin Gobleck

    if i remember correctly Deion Sanders was a fan of him before the draft

  • Burgh Ball

    Bleh is right – I got to 1:58 into the video and at least twice he goes down with someone throwing an arm on him.. no thanks
