The Pittsburgh Steelers have added another running back to their training camp roster. The running back added was Stephen Houston who was an undrafted free agent of the New England Patriots this year and was recently released.

Houston played his college football at Indiana University and finished fourth on the all-time list of rushing touchdowns with 25 and rushed for 2,304 yards in his two years at Indiana. His first two college years were spent at Independence Community College in Kansas before transferring to Indiana.

Houston will be the 8th running back on the Steelers' training camp roster, and with the likes of Le'Veon Bell, LeGarrette Blount and Dri Archer all locked into roster spots, it likely leaves him battling for the final roster spot with the organization.

Houston saw four offensive snaps for the Patriots in the week one preseason game, and one of those snaps ended in him fumbling the football early in the fourth quarter.

Houston will wear the number 44 for the Pittsburgh Steelers as they prepare to host joint practices Wednesday and Thursday with the Buffalo Bills leading up to the second preseason game against the Bill on Saturday night.
