The Pittsburgh Steelers offense is among the youngest in the league.
Kenny Pickett and George Pickens are both entering their second season, and Najee Harris is entering year three.
After a promising rookie campaign, Harris took a slight step back in 2022 after recovering from injury.
Harris hasn’t been given much work throughout the preseason.
While this might cause trepidation among fans, Harris recently tried to quell any concerns.
According to reporter Mark Kaboly, Harris said, “I am following coach T,” and also, “Whatever he says, goes.”
Najee Harris said he and Mike Tomlin had a chat at start of camp about his (lack) of usage in the preseason.

Coach T is in reference to Mike Tomlin, who has been the Steelers’ head coach since 2007.
He’s been a staple for the organization, continuing to bring a winning mindset to this organization.
Tomlin is regarded as one of the best coaches in the league, particularly due to how well-liked he is among players.
It appears that Harris trusts Tomlin and his staff, believing they have his best interests in mind.
There has been significant buzz around the Steelers’ organization, particularly in regards to Jaylen Warren.
Warren is seen as a great complementary back to Harris and could take away some of his playing time.
While Harris has been a great back when on the field, his inefficient start to 2022 might lead to the Steelers giving Warren more chances.
Plus, they didn’t make the playoffs last season, which might be a reason for some changes.
The Steelers are known for winning and making the playoffs under Tomlin.
