RB John Clay done for the season

The Steelers running back situation, at least until Rashard Mendenhall has played its self out in camp. With Isaac Redman, Jonathan Dwyer and Chris Rainey making up the top-3 spots, things were setting up with Baron Batch and John Clay batting for the No. 4 spot but Clay has come up with a severe torn quad that has ended his season and Clay has been placed on the waive/injured list. The Steelers have signed running back Jason Ford (6-0, 248 lbs). He signed with the Houston Texans as an undrafted rookie free agent out of the University of Illinois in May. Ford will wear No. 21. In 2011 as a senior at Illinois, Ford played in 12 games, making eight starts at tailback … ranked second on the team with 600 rushing yards and had a team-high seven rushing TDs on the season … Ford finished career with 1,962 rushing yards (16th-most in UI history) and 26 rushing TDs (2nd-most in UI history).
