Najee Harris, RB (PIT)

Sits out Wednesday's practice

Harris (elbow) didn't practice Wednesday, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports.

Head coach Mike Tomlin previously said that Harris -- who suffered an elbow injury during the Steelers' Week 18 win over the Ravens but was able to return to the game -- would likely have his reps managed in practice to begin the week, so the running back's absence Wednesday isn't surprising. Harris' status will be worth monitoring ahead of Sunday's playoff game against Kansas City, with Tomlin noting that the team will let Harris' "practice participation and how he feels be our guide as we get closer to game time." Benny Snell and Kalen Ballage are next up for reps out of the backfield while Harris manages his elbow issue.
