Steelers' James Conner: Not expected to miss time with concussion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Steelers are optimistic that Conner will clear the NFL's concussion protocol and suit up in the team's next game Nov. 18 against the Jaguars, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Conner sustained a head injury in Thursday's 52-21 win over the Panthers, during which he piled up 65 yards and a touchdown on 13 carries and reeled in his lone target for eight yards. The lengthier turnaround between games should prove beneficial for Conner in his recovery from the concussion, as he'll have nine days to pass the five-step protocol rather than the usual six. Assuming he endures no setbacks and gains clearance to play, Conner should reprise his usual three-down duties for the Steelers, with the second-year back seemingly on track to hold that role for the remainder of the season. Per Adam Schefter of ESPN, Le'Veon Bell is unlikely to report to the Steelers by Tuesday's deadline, which would leave the Steelers' former lead back ineligible to play at any point in 2018.

Steelers' James Conner: In concussion protocol
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Mike Tomlin confirmed after Thursday's 52-21 win over the Panthers that Conner is in the league's concussion protocol, NFL.com reports.

Conner finished the contest with 13 carries for 65 yards and a TD and one catch for eight yards. He'll now look to gain medical clearance in advance of the Steelers' Nov. 18 road tilt against the Jaguars. Meanwhile, per Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com, Steelers president Art Rooney II expects running back Le'Veon Bell (contract dispute) to report to the team next week. Assuming that's the case, the Steelers will have some decisions to make with regard to their backfield leading up to Week 11 action. In such a scenario, Conner's health and Bell's fitness level will no doubt be key factors, but either way it will be interesting to see how the team's carries might be divided if and when both players are available.

Steelers' James Conner: Being evaluated for concussion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Conner is being evaluated for a concussion in the fourth quarter of Thursday's game against the Panthers and is questionable to return.

Conner had a slow game on the ground by his recent standards before exiting, logging 65 yards and a touchdown on 13 carries while adding one reception for eight yards. The rushing numbers still equate to five yards per carry, but it looks as if Conner's four-game 100-yard rushing streak will come to an end in Week 10. With Thursday's contest well out of hand in the fourth quarter, it is unlikely the Steelers will bring the second-year rusher back onto the field, even if he is cleared. Jaylen Samuels figures to see an increased role for the rest of Thursday's blowout and possibly beyond if Conner is forced to miss game action. Pittsburgh will have 10 days to rest before taking on the Jaguars in Week 11.

Steelers' James Conner: Fourth straight game over 100 rushing yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Conner rushed 24 times for 107 yards while adding seven catches for 56 yards and a touchdown on nine targets in Sunday's 23-16 win over Baltimore.

Conner got into the end zone on a seven-yard reception in the first quarter and ended up topping 100 yards on the ground for the fourth consecutive game. With Le'Veon Bell still yet to report due to a contract dispute, the Steelers have had no problem giving Conner all the work he can handle, much to the delight of his fantasy owners. Pittsburgh will be right back in action Thursday, so it's unlikely Bell reports by the time the Panthers come to town in Week 10.

Steelers' James Conner: Poised to lead backfield in Week 9
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Conner is once again expected to serve as Pittsburgh's lead back Sunday in Baltimore after Le'Veon Bell (contract dispute) failed to report to the team Wednesday for the Steelers' first practice of Week 9, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

There was some thought that Bell might rejoin the Steelers this week after he stayed put in Pittsburgh following Tuesday's trade deadline, but it appears the three-time Pro Bowler's prolonged holdout will extend through at least one more game. Given that Bell can still become a free agent this season if he reports to the team prior to Week 11, there's a good chance he'll also remain away from the team for its Thursday night game against the Panthers in Week 10. Conner has taken full advantage of Bell's absence through Pittsburgh's first seven contests, averaging 4.7 yards per carry and hauling in 31 receptions while reaching the end zone nine times. That exceptional production could be enough for Connor to keep the top backfield job even once Bell returns, especially with the Steelers seemingly on course to part ways with the disgruntled three-time Pro Bowler after the season.
