It has been reported that Steelers backup RB LeGarrette Blount left Monday Night's Game early due to lack of playing time. He could face an uncertain future with the Pittsburgh Steelers because of unhappiness over his role with the team.
I don't know why this seems to be becoming a trend. First Ahmad Brooks, and now Blount. Marshawn Lynch was also reported to have been unhappy with the Seahawks and is not talking to ownership.
Blount left the field before the end of the Steelers' 27-24 win over the Tennessee Titans on Monday night, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
Blount, who signed a two-year, $3.85 million contract with the Steelers in March, played only a couple of snaps against the Titans but did not receive a single carry.
Le'Veon Bell got 33 carries while Big Ben had 3 carries.
Blount is second on the Steelers with 266 rushing yards but has not played as big a role in the offense because Bell has become one of the most dynamic backs in the game.
Blount's leaving the field early could lead to discipline from Tomlin, but the Steelers may be reluctant due to the lack of RB depth on their roster. Rookie Dri Archer is the only other running back on the roster, rushing for 41 yards on eight carries.
