Steelers RB LeGarrette Blount was not given a single carry against the Tennessee Titans this past Monday night and reportedly left the game early in frustration.
The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported that Blount, who was held without a carry for the first time this season, is upset with his lack of playing time.
“Blount has been an internal problem for at least a month,” according to the piece by Ed Bouchette, adding some players want the team to release him “because of his poor attitude.”
In Week 10 against New York, Blount was held to zero yards on five carries, but is still averaging an acceptable 4.1 yards/carry this season and has two TDs.
In 2013 Blount was trade to the New England Patriots from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. That year he recorded a career high 7 TDs and 5.04 yards/carry. His success in New England earned him a big free agent contract with the Steelers, but with the emergence of Le’Veon Bell, he has not been given a single start this season.
