Heard it is something to do with his AC Joint, probably a sprain. No broken clavicle.

I hope Samuels can go next week. Connor banged up and so is Snell.

I cant remember a season where we have lost so many key players on what seems like a weekly basis. Seems like we have lost at least one major player every week this year.

Hearing Samuels is good to go for Sunday against the Colts. We're going to need him. I think it would be stupid to play Conner at all in this game, give him a week to heal up at the very least. Samuels/Edmunds can hold down the fort while Conner/Snell heal up.

I think Samuels and Edmunds will do just fine. Even if Connor could play I'd rather see him sit a game or 2.

Pittsburgh Post Gazette reporting Conner expected back for Browns:

Quote :
The Steelers continue to win games with a running game that ranks near the bottom of the NFL and has been as unproductive as any in the past 16 years of the franchise.

That’s why they are hoping the return of James Conner, who has missed the past two games with a shoulder separation, will help an offense that had its worst rushing performance of the season in Sunday’s 17-12 victory against the Los Angeles Rams.

“We’re winning games without the run game,” Conner said. “That doesn’t mean we don’t need it. We definitely do. Hopefully I can contribute to it when I get back.”

The Steelers are expecting that to be Thursday night in Cleveland against the Browns (3-6), barring any setbacks during a short work week. Coach Mike Tomlin said at his weekly news conference Monday he expects his Pro Bowl running back to be a full participant in their reduced practice sessions on Tuesday and Wednesday.“We feel comfortable about his availability, but we have to get through the week,” Tomlin said.

Without Conner and rookie Benny Snell, who had arthroscopic knee surgery two weeks ago, the Steelers have had to activate two players from the practice squad — Trey Edmunds and undrafted rookie Tony Brooks-James — to help Jaylen Samuels. And fullback Rosie Nix is expected to miss his second game in a row because of a knee injury, Tomlin said.

“I’m making a lot of progress and I think I’ll be good to go [in Cleveland],” Conner said. “I can’t make any guarantees, but right now I’ll be playing on Thursday.”

Will be nice to get Conner back. He's our biggest threat in the running game. Having both him and Samuels allows Fichtner to use Samuels as more of a swiss army knife and the offense is a little less predictable for it. Hopefully JC is fully healthy. We need him.

Words is he's going to play tomorrow night. I hope he's ready and doesn't cause more damage to that shoulder. If we have a shot at a run he has to play a part and stay healthy.

This means the coaches need to do a better job of rotating players and limiting the potential to injury. It also means our OL needs to do a better job of minimizing impact at the LOS and getting the RBs to the second & third level.

Exactly. The OL needs to do their job and Fitchner needs to rotate Connor,Samuels and Edmunds to keep Connor in the game.

Hoping Conner has a big game. I really want them to get the browns 2x. We will really be in good shape if we get the next 3 games, that would be 8 wins, with the Cardinals and Jets still on the schedule for the last 4.

Steelers should look out for a RB1, Conners' availability is a real problem. Every year he has missed at least 3 games so far.

Yeah, very much agreed. Hoping they get a vet RB this offseason. Maybe I'm optimistic, but also hoping that Snell may be able to do something more than we've be seeing. I guess we don't hear anything more about the injuries until Monday-Tuesday.
