Najee Harris Injury Update

Luckily for the Steelers, the injury isn't a serious one. Ian Rapoport is reporting that Harris' status for Week 12 is up in the air and the team will evaluate him as the week goes on.

Harris s has been even less productive and efficient than he was during his rookie campaign, averaging only 3.7 yards per carry this season and 53.2 rushing yards per game, compared to 3.9 and 70.6 in those same metrics last year. a similar decline can be seen in his receiving numbers as well.

Granted, Pittsburgh as a team has seen a decline this season, so it's not like Harris' situation has gotten any more favorable.

The Steelers, with or without Harris, will take on the Atlanta Falcons in Week 13, where they are currently a 1.5-point road favorite, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's latest NFL odds.
