As I prognosticated yesterday, the Steelers have added a running back to the practice squad to fill the void left by Josh Harris. Harris was promoted to the active roster yesterday. The team announced this morning that they have added LaDarius Perkins to the practice squad.
The @steelers have signed RB LaDarius Perkins to their practice squad. He is an undrafted rookie FA from Mississippi State.

Perkins is a 5’10, 195 lb back that went undrafted out of Mississippi State. He was signed by the Packers this spring, but ultimately released. He has been playing in the experimental FXFL this fall for the Omaha Mammoths.
Perkins amassed 2554 rushing yards throughout his 4 year college career. Here’s a look at his highlight reel.
