Steelers RB Najee Harris (oblique) did not practice on Wednesday. While his injury reportedly isn't serious, Harris seems no better than 50/50 to play vs. the Falcons this weekend. RB Jaylen Warren (hamstring) was a full go on Wednesday -- confirmation that he'll be back for Sunday's game. We'd expect Warren to lead Pittsburgh's backfield in touches -- ahead of Benny Snell and Anthony McFarland -- if Harris sits.

Steelers RB Jaylen Warren told reporters Wednesday that doctors have cleared him to return from the hamstring injury that cost him Monday night's game against the Colts. He expects to play Sunday against the Falcons. That should put him ahead of Benny Snell and Anthony McFarland Jr. if Najee Harris (abdomen) is unable to go. The lack of clarity on Harris' status for that high-upside matchup makes Warren a solid waiver-wire addition where available.

Steelers RB Najee Harris' status for Sunday's game vs. the Falcons is "up in the air," according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Harris' abdominal injury is not major, Rapoport adds, so this shouldn't be a long-term absence. But Pittsburgh's backfield is in flux right now with both Harris and Jaylen Warren (hamstring) iffy for Week 13. If both guys miss, Benny Snell figures to operate as Pittsburgh's lead back, with Anthony McFarland in a change-of-pace role.

Steelers RB Najee Harris left Monday's game against the Colts with an abdominal injury. He was ruled out at halftime. In his place, Pittsburgh will roll with Anthony McFarland and Benny Snell. We'll see if Harris is able to suit up for a Week 13 date with Atlanta.

Steelers RB Jaylen Warren (hamstring) is out for Monday night's game vs. the Colts. The rookie lasted just 3 snaps last week -- and RB Najee Harris ended up racking up 20 carries and 6 targets on a 92% snap rate. He could be in for similar usage on Monday.

Steelers RB Jaylen Warren (hamstring) did not practice on Thursday. His absence on Monday night vs. the Colts would leave RB Najee Harris in a workhorse role.

Steelers HC Mike Tomlin said Tuesday that RB Jaylen Warren's hamstring injury is "not significant" but labeled him "questionable" for Monday night's game vs. the Colts. We'll track the rookie's status throughout the week. His absence would be a significant boost for RB Najee Harris.

Steelers RB Najee Harris took 20 carries for 90 yards and 2 TDs in Sunday's loss to the Bengals. Its' the 2nd straight game in which he has reached 20 carries, 90 yards and 4.5 yards per rush -- coming out of the Week 9 bye -- after Harris failed to reach any of those marks through the 1st 8 games. Harris also seemed to benefit from Jaylen Warren's early departure for a hamstring injury. Harris tied for 2nd on the team with 6 targets and 4 catches after losing receiving work to the rookie in Week 10. Harris gets a tough rushing matchup with the Colts in Week 12, but a much better spot at Atlanta in Week 13. His final 4 fantasy weeks find potentially tough matchups with the Ravens sandwiching a pair of softer rushing matchups: at the Panthers, home for the Raiders.

Steelers RB Jaylen Warren was knocked out of Sunday's game vs. the Bengals with a hamstring injury. That leaves Najee Harris to dominate backfield work. We'll update Warren's status when we learn more.

Steelers RB Najee Harris (knee) put in a full practice on Wednesday. HC Mike Tomlin said Tuesday that Harris was dealing with "knee discomfort," but it's obviously not a major issue. Harris should be ready for his usual workload vs. the Bengals on Sunday.

Steelers HC Mike Tomlin said Tuesday that RB Najee Harris is dealing with "knee discomfort" but that it won't impact his status for this weekend's game vs. the Bengals. We'll keep an eye on Harris throughout the week. Backup RB Jaylen Warren should be rostered in most fantasy leagues at this point.

Steelers RB Najee Harris ran for 99 yards on 20 carries in Sunday's win over the Saints. He went without a catch on just 1 target. RB Jaylen Warren played his 2nd-largest snap share of the season (43%), matching Harris in routes run. Warren caught all 3 of his targets for 40 yards, ranking 3rd on the team in that category. Warren remained clearly behind Harris in the run game, taking 9 carries for 37 yards. Week 11 holds a challenging matchup with the Bengals.

Steelers HC Mike Tomlin was asked on Tuesday about his backfield coming out of the bye week and said this: "...when we were talking about a division of labor and who's done what and who's done well, I know that was a topic of discussion and very evident in our tape review." Tomlin went on to praise RB Jaylen Warren. "We've gotten some awesome contributions from Jaylen and it's reasonable to expect that to continue," Tomlin said. "He's a quality back that's made some plays." We'd be very surprised if an undrafted rookie supplanted Najee Harris, a former 1st-round pick, as Pittsburgh's lead back, but it sounds like Warren could be in for a bigger role going forward. He's worth stashing as we wait to see what the Steelers' backfield looks like vs. the Saints this weekend.

Steelers RB Najee Harris managed just 32 rushing yards on 8 carries in Sunday's lopsided loss at Philadelphia. He watched RB Jaylen Warren (6-50) and QB Kenny Pickett (7-37) outproduce him on the ground. Harris did lead the team with 6 receptions but turned those into only 26 yards (4.3 per catch). After a Week 9 bye, Pittsburgh gets home dates with the Saints and Bengals.

Steelers RB Najee Harris didn't do a whole lot for your fantasy football lineup in Sunday night's loss to the Dolphins, but his workload was encouraging. Harris carried 17 times for 65 yards and caught 3 of 4 targets for 15 more. He played nearly 4 times as many snaps as rookie backup Jaylen Warren and ran a route on 61.2% of QB Kenny Pickett's dropbacks. That's Harris' highest mark of the season. Week 8 brings a difficult matchup (for the whole team) against the Eagles, followed by a Week 9 bye.

Steelers RB Najee Harris caught 1 of 2 Steelers TD passes in Sunday's win over the Buccaneers. That came on 1 of his 2 catches for 7 total yards. Harris added a mere 42 rushing yards on 14 carries (3.0 per attempt). He did, at least, work well ahead of rookie Jaylen Warren, who totaled just 2 touches for 2 yards (both on the ground). Harris gets a tough Miami run defense in Week 7 and then a tough-all-over Philly matchup in Week 8.
