Update: Harris is back in the game, but he’s likely going to be ceding work to Warren going forward. Harris took one carry and then immediately checked out for Warren to come in. The Steelers are starting to see what everyone else has, and Harris might not be getting the insane workload from his first two seasons going forward.

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Najee Harris has gone into the medical tent late in the third-quarter. He appeared to be okay and wanted back in the game, but he eventually ended up in the medical tent due to an undisclosed injury. Jaylen Warren is his direct backup.

Harris has 14 carries for 55 yards, his best rushing output of the season. His backup, Warren, has six carries for 29 yards and two receptions for 18 more yards as the Steelers have a 23-7 lead with two minutes left in the third-quarter.
