The needs at other positions force the Steelers to keep just three running backs and one fullback.
Keep an eye on the status of David Johnson as well. If either he or Miller are placed on the regular season PUP, it may save another running back, but even then the extra spot could be used elsewhere.
Justin Brown looks to be the front-runner over J.D. Woods at this point, but that could easily change. Steelers may go with just four receivers again, too.
Joe Long has an outside chance here, but for the sake of keeping a deep linebackers and cornerbacks group for special teams, they may start the season with seven offensive linemen.

Defense - 26 players
Woods' versatility and outstanding training camp can't be ignored.
The Steelers can get deep with their defensive linemen, something they like to do when the weather is hot.
Robinson and Alan Baxter are still battling, and Chris Carter's experience can't be discounted here.
Rolle is something of a surprise but his athleticism make him a more viable option than Sylvester.
Missed assignment on punt block last week gets Da'Mon Cromartie-Smith cut.
Specialists - three players
In the end, they signed him for a reason. Butler hasn't done enough to fend the veteran off.
