James Conner, has been a key player for the Steelers. With him being out, the Steelers are 1-2. Mike Tomlin in a press conference said he saw Conner getting medical treatment on tuesday. He should be ready to roll this weekend said Coach Mike Tomlin. Jaylen Samuels carried the load backing up James Conner. He had 167 rushing yards against the Patriots. It kills James Conner not to be out on the field. Earlier this week, Conner was selected for the Pro Bowl. Without Le’veon Bell, Conner would no of got the chance he is getting this season. Everyone is uncertain about Bell returning. This means that Conner might have himself a long term spot as RB1. This is why the steelers are making sure he gets healthy before returning to the field.
