Steelers running back James Conner should be back on the field tonight against the Bills.

Conner is expected to play tonight after missing the last three games with a shoulder injury, according to multiple reports.

With Conner back, the Steelers are likely to have a running back by committee approach with Conner, Benny Snell and Jaylen Samuels.

Conner leads the Steelers with 102 carries for 390 yards and four touchdowns this season. He also has 30 catches for 242 yards and two receiving touchdowns.

  1. He is a better blocker than Snell or Samuels. That could help in the passing game, if he can get through a game without being injured…

    Conner or no Conner…the Bills are going to win this one…
    The Bills will continue losing and finish 9-7 and out of the playoffs.

    Just lose baby.

  3. If the oft-injured James Conner gets injured, yet again, or fumbles, yet again, he should take his seat on the bench with Mason Rudolph, at the bus station out of town.

  4. Connor is a talented back when healthy. However, he hasn’t been healthy for much of his career thus far, and will likely be re-injured again tonight, assuming he plays? I’ve said before, the Steelers should place him on IR for the rest of the season, let him get healthy, and come back next year as part of a RB by committee. If he gets hurt again, it will be time to part company with him. He has a great story, it’s just a shame that he doesn’t appear to be able to stay on the field very much.

  5. Maybe JUJU Smith Fumble will play next week when the Steelers are officially eliminated. After all, it’s tradition that he fumble away the season.
