James Conner injury not considered major Leg contusion By: Mike Krueger | Dec 3 2018, 10:00 am
On #Steelers RB James Conner: My understanding is the injury is not to his ankle and not considered major at all. Coach Mike Tomlin called it a contusion and it seems like he'll be OK, based on early impressions. How much it swells will be telling. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)
FFToday's Take:If you watch the video it seems to indicate a sprained ankle so it's safe to wonder if Tomlin is downplaying the injury. We should get more information over the next couple days and Conner will undoubtedly be at the very least limited in practice this week. Jaylen Samuels and Stevan Ridley are next up on the depth chart. The Steelers have a juicy matchup against the Raiders.
