PITTSBURGH (AP) — Pittsburgh Steelers running back Jaylen Warren is becoming a vital part of his team’s offense. Warren ran for a career-high 101 yards and a touchdown in a 23-19 win over Green Bay that pushed Pittsburgh’s record to 6-3. Warren’s role has steadily increased since he made the team as an undrafted rookie free agent in 2022. Warren has become a co-starter alongside Najee Harris, an honor Pittsburgh coach Mike Tomlin said Warren is deserving of because of the way he goes about his business. Warren, Harris and the rest of the Steelers visit Cleveland next week.
