Steelers' James Conner: Struggles before exiting early

Conner ran for 10 yards on five carries and caught one of two targets for six yards Thursday in Pittsburgh's 21-7 loss to Cleveland before departing in the first half after aggravating a right shoulder injury.

Returning after missing the last two games with an AC joint sprain in his shoulder, Conner struggled to find room to run, with seven of his 10 yards coming on one carry. He re-injured the shoulder in the second quarter and was initially labeled questionable to return before being ruled out for the remainder of the contest. With 10 days before Pittsburgh's next outing Week 12 versus the Bengals, fantasy owners will need to take a wait-and-see approach with regard to Conner's availability for that matchup. Cincinnati has surrendered a league-high 173.0 yards per game on the ground to date.
