The deal is done after the Steelers agreed to terms with Ben Tate.
As the Pittsburgh Steelers prepare for their first playoff game in three years, they'll likely be without Pro Bowl running back Le'Veon Bell for the wild-card round.
After Bell suffered a hyperextended against the Bengals Sunday night, there's doubt he'll be ready to suit up vs. the Ravens on Saturday night. "It's too early to tell, but it doesn't look good," NFL Media's Aditi Kinkhabwala reported.
As for who will get more carries in Bell's absence, former Browns RB Ben Tate could be the man if his visit with Pittsburgh goes well on Tuesday.

Tate opened the season playing well for the Browns, but got eventually fell behind Terrance West and Isaiah Crowell on the depth chart before worse the Browns cut him. He later signed with the Vikings, who also cut him after he was ineffective.
