On Wednesday, Steelers running back James Conner said, "“I’m trying. It’s day by day. These high-ankle sprains are deceiving. I can walk around fine, I’m not limping around, but when I’m out there on the field, cutting and stuff, I’m just not ready yet.”
Multiple reports are swirling around the stud second-year pro, and none of them are good. If you were hoping to have him this week, you need to get a plan in place and prepare as though he won't be available. Jaylen Samuels will be a borderline RB1 in his stead.
