Benny Snell is about to get his opportunity to shine in Pittsburgh


Benny Snell wanted more reps with the Steelers? He’s about to get them.

This afternoon, Pittsburgh head coach Mike Tomlin announced backup running back Jaylen Samuels would miss “about one month” after undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery.

According to Tomlin, Snell is “chomping at the bit” to be a contributor in the Pittsburgh offense, adding that he expects the former Wildcat to “get more exposure” at running back moving forward.

Through five games, Snell has managed just 30 yards on five carries, though he did manage an impressive 23-yard run on the very first carry of his career:

With consistent reps and more opportunities on the horizon, we’ll see how Snell takes advantage against the Los Angeles Chargers during Sunday Night Football.

Until then, check out his record-breaking career highlights at Kentucky:

    Jack, are you trying to make some grown men cry today? Lol. Man we needed Benny back this year. I think once Tomlin starts developing a real relationship with Benny, he’ll become a really good player in the league. The fans are going to love this young man once he gets going and gets confidence. Good luck Benny!! Show the world what you got brother!
