Pittsburgh Steelers RB James Conner (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 20, and is not on the injury report for Week 3.
Huddle Up: Conner has struggled during the first two games of the season but may receive more touches with Mason Rudolph as the starting quarterback. He should still be a weekly starting option in all fantasy leagues despite his slow start.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB James Conner (knee) was upgraded to a full participant at practice Thursday, Sept. 19.
Huddle Up: Conner figures to be in for an increased workload with backup Mason Rudolph taking over for the injured Ben Roethlisberger under center. The opposition will be aware of this; however, and Conner should be the primary focus of the defense. He's averaging just 2.6 yards per carry through two weeks and can benched if you have better options.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB James Conner (knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 18.
Huddle Up: Conner expects to play in Week 3, but fantasy players will know more about his status later in the week. He should still be a starting option if he plays, but Jaylen Samuel can be at least a flex option if Conner is ruled out.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB James Conner (knee) said he expects to play in Week 3 and that he does not have any tears or serious problems in his knee.
Huddle Up: Conner probably will be limited during practice this week, so fantasy players should check on his status later this week. He has struggled during the first two weeks of the season but could receive more touches with Ben Roethlisberger sidelined. Conner should still be a starting option in all leagues.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB James Conner (knee) is not expected to miss much - if any - time with the knee injury that sidelined him late in Week 2 against the Seattle Seahawks. According to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler, multiple teammates believe the injury is not serious, and Conner appeared to be moving fine walking around the locker room after the game.
Huddle Up: While this isn't exactly getting clearance from a doctor, this news combined with the fact he is expected to do his usual Monday radio interview are good signs all is well. It hasn't been a good start to the season for Conner, but the Steelers may need to rely on him more now than ever with Ben Roethlisberger done for the year. Jaylen Samuels would get the start if Conner misses a game, but it looks like fantasy owners of Conner may have lucked out here.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB James Conner (knee) suffered a knee injury during the Week 2 game and is considered questionable to return.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players should know more about Conner's status in the next day or two. Jaylen Samuels would take over the starting role if Conner misses time and would be at least a flex option.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB James Conner (illness) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 13, and is not on the injury report for Week 2.
Huddle Up: Conner should receive plenty of touches this week against the Seattle Seahawks even though he struggled some last week. He should still be a starting option in all fantasy leagues.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB James Conner (illness) fully participated in practice Thursday, Sept. 12.

Pittsburgh Steelers RB James Conner (illness) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 11.
Huddle Up: Conner received only 14 total touches in Week 1 and finished with 65 total yards. He should be more involved this week and can be a starting running back in all fantasy leagues.
