Pittsburgh Steelers RB Benny Snell (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 22, and is not on the injury report for Week 12.
Huddle Up: Snell should see a solid amount of carries this week against the Cincinnati Bengals with James Conner sidelined. He has a chance to be a flex option in some leagues.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Benny Snell (knee) will be evaluated in practice Tuesday, Nov. 19, and head coach Mike Tomlin said he's excited about Snell's potential return.
Huddle Up: Snell's return coincides with James Conner suffering a shoulder injury. Snell would be well behind Jaylen Samuels in the backfield, but Snell could be a sneaky waiver pickup this week.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Benny Snell had 17 carries for 75 yards during the team's Week 6 victory over the Los Angeles Chargers. He also added a 14-yard reception in the win.
Huddle Up: With Jaylen Samuels out, Snell moved into the backup role in Week 6. It turned out to be an important one as: a) the team leaned heavily on the running game with Devlin Hodges making his first start, and b) James Conner was forced from the game with a quad injury. With 15 days before the team's next outing, Mason Rudolph and Conner should both be back, which could well limit Snell's role. If Conner's injury is more serious than it appeared, though, Snell would become an appealing waiver target.
