Ollison reverted to the Steelers' practice squad Tuesday.
Ollison was elevated ahead ahead of Monday's 26-22 win over the Browns, but he only played five snaps on special teams, failing to record a stat. The running back could join the active roster again in Week 3 versus the Raiders as Anthony McFarland (knee) will once again be unavailable.
Ollison was elevated from the Steelers' practice squad ahead of Monday's game against the Browns.
Ollison will be tasked with handling the team's No. 3 running back role with Anthony McFarland (knee) being placed on IR. The 2019 fifth-round selection appeared in three games with the Cowboys last season, and last carried the ball in 2021 while with the Falcons.
Ollison signed with the Steelers' practice squad Saturday, Dale Lolley of the Steelers' official site reports.
A bulkier back at 232 pounds, Ollison hasn't gotten many opportunities to showcase his skillset with just 45 career carries across four seasons. It's possible the 2019 fifth-round pick could find himself on the active roster on gamedays as a special teams player.
The Jaguars released Ollison on Tuesday.
Ollison spent the first three years of his career in Atlanta before playing for the Cowboys last year. He's had a minimal impact to begin his NFL career and was unable to land a spot on the Jaguars' 53-man roster ahead of the 2023 campaign. The 2019 fifth-rounder will now attempt to find an opportunity elsewhere.

Ollison was selected in the fifth round of the 2019 Draft by the Falcons, appearing in 19 games for the team over a three-year span. He also spent time with the Cowboys last season, appearing in three games but only contributing on special teams. He'll work to make more of an impact in Jacksonville during the 2023 campaign.
Ollison reverted to the Cowboys' practice squad Friday, per the NFL transaction log.
Ollison was promoted to the active roster for Thursday's game against Tennessee as Tony Pollard (thigh) was inactive. Ollison played 13 snaps on special teams and tallied a tackle on kick-return coverage. He's now been active for three games this season, though he has yet to log an offensive statistic.
With fellow running back Tony Pollard (thigh) not expected to play in Week 17 against Tennessee, the Cowboys elevated Ollison from the practice squad to the active roster Thursday, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.
With Pollard likely unavailable due to a thigh issue, Ollison is now in line to operate as Dallas' No. 3 backfield option behind Ezekiel Elliott and Malik Davis in Thursday's matchup against the Titans. In the 26-year-old's two game appearances this season, he's played a combined two offensive snaps without a logging a carry.
