Tomlin Leaving Competition Open For Backup Running Back Spot

In a move that appears to be designed to keep both players hungry, Mike Tomlin would not commit to either Jordan Todman or Isaiah Pead as the backup running back to DeAngelo Williams. Todman has served as the backup since Le’Veon Bell’s injury but with the bye week giving Pead…


Bye Week Rethink: DeAngelo Williams And Lightening Load

Today is Sunday, and the Pittsburgh Steelers are not playing. They are not playing tomorrow, either, nor did they already play on Thursday. The 6-4 franchise is entering its long awaited and much needed bye week after 10 straight games. With not much else going on, it would figure to…

Haley Comfortable With Todman Right Now, Not So Much With Pead

Even though Pittsburgh Steelers starting running back DeAngelo Williams appears to be on track to play this coming Sunday in the team’s home game against the Cleveland Browns after missing Wednesday’s practice with some inflammation in one of his feet, it’s obvious that the team can’t keep expecting the 32-year-old…


Todd Haley Doesn’t Rule Out Seeing Will Johnson at Running Back

Will Johnson isn’t going away without a fight. Ok, maybe that is some hyperbole. This isn’t Matt Damon getting off Mars in The Martain. But as we’ve written, and you’ve certainly noticed, Johnson has lost his role in the Pittsburgh Steelers’ offense. “I feel good about our backs. The other thing…

End Of The Line Might Be Near For Steelers TE/FB Will Johnson

Based on the way a few things transpired on Sunday, time might very well be short for Pittsburgh Steelers tight end/fullback Will Johnson. For starters, Johnson, who originally signed with the team in 2012 as an undrafted free agent, played a season-low one snap in Sunday’s win over the Oakland Raiders….
