The Pittsburgh Steelers made another change to their practice squad Wednesday morning.
The Steelers announced they have signed former Buffalo Bills running back Karlos Williams to their practice squad.
We have signed RB Karlos Williams to our practice squad.

Williams was cut by the Bills during training camp after he was suspended four games for violation of the NFL’s substance abuse policy. He was productive as a rookie, however, rushing for 517 yards and 7 touchdowns primarily as LeSean McCoy’s backup.
Williams joins veteran running back Darryl Richardson on Pittsburgh’s practice squad. The Steelers cut running back David Cobb from their practice squad Tuesday.
Pittsburgh could be bolstering its running back depth as an insurance policy. DeAngelo Williams is dealing with a knee injury and star running back Le’Veon Bell has had injury issues in the past.
