Free agent RB Jason Huntley has signed with the Colts.
The Colts backfield remains up in the air with Jonathan Taylor away from the team and Zack Moss having broken his arm. They also met with Kareem Hunt, but he left without a deal. Huntley will have the opportunity in camp to compete for a depth role.
The Pittsburgh Steelers have signed RB Jason Huntley to their practice squad, picking him up from the Philadelphia Eagles.
Huntley was released during the final wave of Philadelphia's cuts after two years with the team. A former fifth-rounder from New Mexico State, Huntley has seen limited action so far in his career. He posted career-high numbers last season in Philadelphia, toting 13 carries for 51 yards. Huntley provides depth to a young Steelers backfield but likely won't see the field much.
Jason Huntley rushed 11 times for 92 yards and a touchdown and caught four of his six targets for 22 yards in Saturday's loss to the Miami Dolphins.
Huntley has received a ton of work throughout the summer due to a number of injuries to other Eagles running backs, but it's unclear if he's done enough to earn a spot on the 53-man roster. Huntley's ability to return kicks gives him a chance to crack the final roster in Philadelphia or land on another team once he's waived, but he has minimal fantasy value heading into the 2022 season.
Jason Huntley rushed eight times for 22 yards in Sunday's win over the Cleveland Browns. He was not targeted in the passing game.
Huntley has seen a significant workload throughout the preseason as the other Philadelphia running backs have been dealing with injuries, but he is unlikely to make the team barring injuries.
Jason Huntley got 16 carries for 48 yards and a touchdown while adding 39 receiving yards on four catches.
Huntley was drafted in the fifth round of the 2020 draft and has appeared in six games in his two-year career. Huntley showed he can handle duties as both a runner and a receiver and could be a solid depth piece in the Eagles' RB room this season. Huntley will likely be on the roster bubble for the Eagles. If he does make the team it would likely take an injury or two for him to become worth a roster spot in 2022.
