Since the Pittsburgh Steelers drafted Le’Veon Bell, they have been a one back football team. You have your feature back, and you have those who can spell him if he is injured or needs a break. Even in situations where players like DeAngelo Williams performed well in his stead, Bell was the man the coaches never took off the field.
With Bell now gone, the Steelers have turned their attention to James Conner as the feature back, but Conner has yet to play all 16 games of a regular season. After a high ankle sprain saw him miss extended time in 2018, the Steelers are reportedly re-thinking their plan for carries among their running backs.
