PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Did you know that Najee Harris didn’t play in his rookie season?
You may not have, but it’s true.
Last season, Harris led the NFL in touchdowns with 381.
The rookie is returning to join a list that includes all-time greats like Barry Sanders and LaDainian Tomlinson.
Najee’s 381 zero-touch touches have put him at the top of most touches without a single touch in a season since 1990.
The next closest is Barry Sanders with 375 touchless touches in the 1994 season, followed by LaDainian Tomlinson, who also had 375 touchless touches in the 2007 season.
Harris got past Steelers ex-Le’Veon Bell, who had 373 touchdowns without a single encounter during the 2014 season.
His rookie season saw him score 1,200 yards, seven rush touchdowns and three touchdowns.
He and the rest of the Steelers are getting ready to take on the Kansas City Captains in the Wild Card Round at 8:15pm this Sunday.
