PITTSBURGH — Najee Harris is not messing around.
Abram tried to bring Harris down on the first-down run, but the Alabama product shook him off, shoved him down and kept going. The home crowd roared as Abram hit the turf and gave an encore cheer when the replay came up on the video board a few seconds later. It was Harris’ second-longest run of the first quarter after a 14-yard gain up the middle earlier.

Harris earned a reputation as a physical back with plays like that at Alabama, and he also regularly hurdled defenders in college, too.
Through the first quarter, Harris had five carries for 14 yards.
