Steelers' James Conner: May be out through Week 15
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Conner, who is listed as out for Sunday's game against the Raiders, could also miss the Steelers' subsequent matchup with the Patriots in Week 15, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Though Conner was initially diagnosed with a leg contusion after exiting the Steelers' Week 13 loss to the Chargers, Rapoport relays that the running back is dealing with something closer to a high-ankle sprain, which likely explains why Pittsburgh ruled him out five days ahead of gameday. Conner is scheduled to receive a follow-up evaluation Monday, which should help the Steelers determine whether or not he has a realistic shot at making it back for Week 15. As for Sunday, the Steelers are expected to install rookie fifth-round pick Jaylen Samuels as their top running back, with Stevan Ridley potentially mixing in on occasion.

Steelers' James Conner: Dealing with ankle issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Mike Tomlin relayed Tuesday that Conner has a sprained ankle that is more significant than originally thought, ESPN.com reports.

Previous reports indicated that the running back was dealing with a leg contusion, but that's been narrowed down to an ankle issue. Given how quickly the running back was ruled out this week, it's fair to wonder if his absence could extend beyond Week 14. The Steelers will thus turn to Jaylen Samuels and Stevan Ridley to head their backfield Sunday against the Raiders in some form of time-share, with Trey Edmunds in reserve.

Steelers' James Conner: Sidelined by ankle injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

An ankle sprain will cause Conner to miss Sunday's game against the Raiders, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports.

As a result, look for Jaylen Samuels and Stevan Ridley to head the Steelers' Week 14 backfield, with Trey Edmunds in reserve.

Steelers' James Conner: Forced from game with leg injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Conner carried 15 times for 60 yards and two touchdowns on caught three of four targets for 14 yards during Sunday's 33-30 loss to the Chargers before exiting with a lower-leg contusion late in the fourth quarter,

For the second straight game, Conner was mostly held in check, with 42 of his rushing yards coming on two carries. He was taken out of the game after getting rolled up on late in the contest, prompting the Steelers to turn to Jaylen Samuels at running back for the final few plays. It sounds like Conner's injury is of the minor variety, but his status will bear monitoring in the coming days to discern if he'll be ready play Week 14 in Oakland.

Steelers' James Conner: Initially diagnosed with bruise
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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, it would be great news for the running back if he truly is dealing with just a bruise. However, it's still possible Conner could miss time, and any sort of absence couldn'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.
