Rams Vs. Steelers: John Clay Has Touchdown In First-Ever NFL Carry

A 52-yard run by Rashard Mendenhall led to a touchdown run by John Clay on Clay’s first-ever NFL carry, and the Steelers lead the Rams by a score of 10-0.

Clay is on the roster this week due to an injury to Mewelde Moore. He had been on the Steelers’ practice squad before this. He was an undrafted free agent from the University of Wisconsin. Congratulations to Clay; to spend the better part of an entire season waiting to get into a game and then to score on one’s first-ever NFL run has to feel great.

Mendenhall has had a great game so far, and his 52-yard run was a thing of beauty – he got some very good blocking by Heath Miller, and he made a great cut to find all kinds of open space. Mendenhall currently has 97 yards rushing with six minutes left in the second quarter.
