The recent signing of Kevan Barlow does not mean Verron Haynes is out of the picture at running back. Haynes is still rehabilitating the knee he seriously injured last October at the Steelers' South Side practice facility. The Steelers released the reliable third-down back in March for salary-cap reasons. They haven't changed their position that they want to re-sign Haynes if he is healthy enough for training camp. Coach Mike Tomlin said he hasn't talked with Haynes but said he's heard positive things about how the fifth-year veteran is working to get back to full strength.
"From what I understand, he's been doing a good job of it," Tomlin said.
