    After being inactive the past two weeks, running back Jamie Harper will be in uniform against the Steelers.

    During a time when Chris Johnson has struggled, might a heavier back like Harper provide a change of pace? Javon Ringer, the normal backup, is out 4-6 weeks after suffering a knee injury vs. the Vikings.

    “We think Jamie is a real good back,” coach Mike Munchak said. “Ringer brings experience and protection, things like that, and he’s very familiar with that, so that was kind of the edge he had over (Harper) on a weekly basis. Obviously, Harper is a much bigger man and is a different type of runner so that’s why we drafted him, so you would hope he would play at some point.”

    Harper has played in two games, with one carry for three yards. He had 17 carries for 44 yards in 2011.

    No, no, you had it right.

    He's dressing out in T-Rac's uni, hopping in the golfcart and running over #7 in the 3rd quarter.
