Najee Harris Gives Update On His Week 13 Status

The Pittsburgh Steelers injury report is two running backs lighter.

Najee Harris said on Friday he plans to play against the Atlanta Falcons. Jaylen Warren is also expected to return for Week 13.

Harris has been dealing with an oblique injury. He didn’t practice on Wednesday or Thursday, saying he was resting and letting his injury "heal by itself."

The Steelers finished Week 12 without its two main backs. Warren didn't play against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday due to a hamstring injury. Benny Snell and Anthony McFarland stepped in for Harris and Warren, combining for 92 yards on 18 carries.

In 11 games this season, Harris rushed for 585 yards and four touchdowns, three of which came in his last two games.

Harris and Warren's official game status will be released later on Friday.
