Could Benny Snell Jr. see more playing time?

PITTSBURGH, Pa (WYMT)- Benny Snell Jr. could see more snaps as the second string running back.

Pittsburgh Steeler's Head Coach Mike Tomlin said Tuesday that Jaylen Samuels will miss about a month with a left knee injury.

Tomlin told the media that he thinks the former Wildcat is ready for the increased role.

"I believe that he is," said Tomlin. "I know that he is chomping at the bit to be a contributor. He is a high energy young guy. Highly productive in special teams. This guy is making tackles and it has been really impressive. We drafted him to be a running back and he will get an opportunity to get more exposure there because of the injury to Jaylen and I am sure he will be excited about it."

The Steelers visit the Chargers on Sunday night.
