LOOK: Pitt RB James Conner is already back on the practice field
Pitt running back James Connor was practicing with his teammates on Saturday, two months after being diagnosed with Hodgkins lymphoma.
Two months ago, in early December, Pittsburgh running back James Conner was diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma. On Saturday morning, Conner was already back practicing with his teammates.
Pitt coach Pat Narduzzi tweeted video of Conner running a drill.
Conner himself tweeted about the video too.
Narduzzi told FoxSports.com that Conner has already been through five chemo treatments, and that he'll be going back for his sixth on Monday, accompanied by the coach.
The knee surgery Conner is referring to in his tweet is the one Conner required after suffering an MCL tear that cost him the 2015 season. The lymphoma is a much tougher fight, but given what we've all seen from Conner on the football field, and in the video Narduzzi tweeted, odds are he's going to run over it like any other defender that's tried to get in his way.
