Mike Tomlin Makes Hilarious Pee Joke to Summarize Jaylen Warren’s First NFL Action

Success!

Jaylen Warren saw his first extended action on Sunday in the NFL first as the primary backup running back to Najee Harris, then, after Harris was injured, as the No. 1 ball-carrier for the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Warren took every snap at running back in Harris’ absence and totaled a modest three carries for seven yards. It was about what you’d expect from a rookie behind one of the worst offensive lines in the entire league. But it was slightly better, apparently, than Steelers coach Mike Tomlin expected — for one hilarious reason.

“He didn’t urinate down his leg,” said Tomlin, “so that’s a great place to begin with.”

A rather low bar to set! Nonetheless, if your coach is pleased you didn’t pee-pee, then you take that as a win — especially when you’re trying to earn your stripes as a rookie.

“I think that’s indicative of [Jaylen],” Tomlin continued on a slightly more serious note, praising the former OSU star who led the team last season in rushing. “That’s why he’s gone from an undrafted guy to a guy who is carving a role out for himself.”
