Head coach Mike Tomlin said Conner suffered a lower-leg contusion during Sunday's 33-30 loss to the Chargers, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Conner exited the game with only minutes remaining in the fourth quarter after racking up 74 total yards and two scores on 18 touches. While further medical testing may be necessary to pinpoint the exact nature of his injury, the reveal of just a bruise would be great news. However, Conner could miss time even with that diagnosis, and any absence wouldn't come at a worse time for most fantasy owners right before Conner was poised to take aim at a porous Raiders defense in Week 14. If Conner is unable to play, the Steelers would likely look to Jaylen Samuels to spearhead the rushing attack.
