Pead suffered a hamstring injury Thursday but it is believed to be minor, Jason Lieser of the Palm Beach Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

According to Lieser, Pead could have to returned to action Thursday if it were a regular season game. However, given that it was a preseason game, the Dolphins took the cautious route and held out Pead for the remainder of the game after he injured his hamstring. Pead only had one carry for one yard Thursday, but he was solid as a pass catcher out of the backfield as he caught all three of his targets for 14 yards. He figures to return to practice in the near future.

Pead gained 48 yards on four rushes and totaled 30 yards on his sole reception in Friday's 41-14 preseason loss to the Cowboys.

EDGE Analysis

Fighting for a backup role behind Arian Foster, the former Ram and Steeler made a strong case for himself for the second straight game. Pead ripped off an impressive 45-yard run off left tackle late in the third quarter, which was preceded by a 30-yard catch-and-run in the latter stages of the second period when Ryan Tannehill found him all alone in the right flat. Pead now has 98 yards on 14 rushes over his first two preseason games and appears to have the edge over fellow young veteran Daniel Thomas for a spot alongside Arian Foster and Jay Ajayi in the Dolphins backfield.

Pead gained 50 yards on 10 rushes and lost three yards on his sole catch in Friday's 27-10 preseason victory over the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

Fighting for a backup tailback spot, Pead made a strong first impression in a Dolphins uniform. The fourth-year back was essentially out of football last season after tallying only two carries between stints with the Rams and Steelers. Pead's highlight of the night was a 26-yard rumble on the first posession of the second half, a run in which he started right, cut back to the middle of the field, and put on a nifty spin move that allowed him to gain about 15 extra yards. The 26-year-old has a legitimate opportunity to latch on to a roster spot on a Dolphins squad that is still trying to settle its running back corps.

Pead (hamstring) missed practice Thursday, Anthony Chiang of the Palm Beach Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pead suffered the hamstring injury in training camp Monday, and was also sidelined for Tuesday's practice as he continues to recover. At this point the 26-year-old should still be considered day-to-day, but he'll have a lot of work to do in order to make the roster upon his eventual return.

Pead did not practice on Tuesday after leaving Monday's training camp session with what appeared to be a hamstring injury, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

Without a timetable for a potential return, Pead should be considered day-to-day until further notice. With Jay Ajayi (knee) still sidelined, the bulk of repetitions in the Dolphins backfield will be divvied up between the likes of Kenyan Drake, Damien Williams and Daniel Thomas while the newly-acquired Arian Foster remains limited under a snap count.

The Dolphins have signed Pead, the Miami Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

After making attempts to add C.J. Anderson and Chris Johnson to their backfield mix, the Dolphins will now add Pead to the depth mix behind Jay Ajayi, but his addition is not likely to be the team's last move to fortify the running back position. The 26-year-old -- who was a 2012 second-round pick by the Rams -- was limited to two carries for three yards in two games last season, and he thus has much to prove before approaching fantasy consideration.

The Steelers have released Pead, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

EDGE Analysis

To replace Pead as a depth RB option, the Steelers have promoted Fitzgerald Toussaint from their practice squad to the team's active roster.

Pead is officially inactive for Sunday's game against the Raiders.

EDGE Analysis

Pead, who was just signed this week for depth, had a small chance to play behind DeAngelo Williams in this game, but he is not on the active roster.

Pead signed with the Steelers on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

Pead's signing unfortunately coincides with star Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell (knee) being placed on season-ending injured reserve. With Bell out, veteran DeAngelo Williams should shoulder most of Pittsburgh's backfield workload, but Pead could compete with fellow backups Dre Archer and Jordan Todman for spare touches.

Pead will visit with the Steelers on Monday, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.

EDGE Analysis

With Le'Veon Bell (knee) looking at an extended absence, Pead may join the Steelers to provide depth behind DeAngelo Williams. The former second-round draft pick (2012) was unimpressive during his time with the Rams, and he probably won't have a major role with the Steelers if he signs.
