A former running back for Ohio State signs with a new team.
Master Teague is receiving another chance with the Pittsburgh Steelers.
The former Ohio State running back was added to Pittsburgh's practice squad on Wednesday. Additionally, the Steelers released defensive tackle Renell Wren and signed wide receiver
Ja'Marcus Bradley to their practice squad.Teague played for the Buckeyes for four seasons, accumulating 1,764 running yards and 17 touchdowns. In seven 2020 games, he scored
eight times,including twice in Ohio State's defeat to Alabama in the national championship game.Before going undrafted, the 5'11", 226-pound runner accepted 69 touches during his
junior season. Following their rookie cut, the Chicago Bears released Teague after he joined with them.Pittsburgh signed Teague in August, but after he injured his ankle
in training camp, they released him two weeks later.The lone running back to see action behind Najee Harris this season, rookie Jaylen Warren, is presently sidelined with a
hamstring ailment. Harris endured knee pain last Sunday and still played.Benny Snell Jr. is most likely the backup running back in case Warren is sidelined for a while because
Jeremy McNichols, who suffered a serious shoulder injury, is out for the season.
Teague might compete for a roster spot with Pittsburgh's other practice squad running backs, Anthony McFarland Jr. and Jason Huntley.
