Najee Harris Injury: Update on Steelers RB Status for Week 2 vs. Patriots


Is Najee Harris playing against Patriots? Here’s the latest update on Steelers RB that originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston

The Pittsburgh Steelers are a broken team after Week 1 of the 2022 NFL season, and that could benefit the New England Patriots for Sunday’s Week 2 game at Acrisure Stadium.

The Patriots travel to Pittsburgh on Sunday with a 0-1 record after losing 20-7 to the Miami Dolphins.

–End of update–

Steeler’s defensive end TJ Watt — one of the most talented players in the league — suffered what appeared to be a serious pectoral injury in Pittsburgh’s overtime win over the Cincinnati Bengals in the season opener.

Watt wasn’t the only major Steelers player to be injured.

Starting running back, Najee Harris also suffered a foot injury. Harris reportedly sustained a Lisfranc injury in a training camp. However, the latest reports are encouraging for the Steelers.

NFL Media’s Mike Giardi reported late Sunday that, as he’s been told, Harris’ injury is not a problem.

TBEN Sports’ Aditi Kinkhabwala reported a similar update:

However, being OK and being 100 percent are two different things. So even if Harris is active and playing the Patriots next week, he could be at less than full strength. Harris, if he’s healthy, is a top 10 slump in football.

Rookie running back Jaylen Warren is the backup and would probably see the Steelers most hasty attempts if Harris isn’t playing or severely restricted against the Patriots.
