Steelers RB James Conner (ankle) did not practice on Wednesday. He admitted to reporters afterward that he's still having trouble cutting and that his injured ankle "isn't ready yet." Conner now seems worse than 50/50 to play against the Saints this weekend. That'd again leave Jaylen Samuels as Pittsburgh's lead back. Check back tomorrow for another update.

Steelers RB James Conner was in and out of Sunday night's game against the Chargers with a quad injury. He finished with a big 119 total yards and 2 TDs but didn't play at all in the 4th quarter. Pittsburgh's comfortable lead might have played a role in the decision to hold Conner out, but we'll look for further updates on his status. The Steelers do get a well-timed Week 7 bye. RB Benny Snell picked up the slack for Conner vs. Los Angeles, finishing with 17 carries for 75 yards. He's worth stashing on fantasy rosters while we wait to learn more about Conner. RB Jaylen Samuels figures to miss another game or 2 after his knee surgery.

Steelers RB James Conner (ankle) isn't listed on the final Week 5 injury report. He put in a full practice on Friday after sitting out the previous 2 days. Conner played through this injury last week and shouldn't be impacted by it in Sunday's game against the Ravens.

Steelers RB James Conner (ankle) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. He played through the injury on Monday night and said he'll be "fine" for Week 5. But fantasy owners shouldn't consider Conner a lock to play against the Ravens on Sunday. Check back tomorrow for another update.

In a Tuesday radio appearance, Steelers RB James Conner said the ankle he tweaked in Monday night's win is "fine." He added that he could practice on Wednesday. We'll see if he actually does, but Conner should be available for this weekend's game against the Ravens.

Steelers RB James Conner is being evaluated after injuring his ankle in the win over the Bengals, HC Mike Tomlin said. Conner was able to play through the injury on Monday night, so we'd be surprised if he's not able to go against the Ravens this weekend. Still, the ankle is just another reason to make sure Jaylen Samuels is owned in your league after his usage spiked in Week 4.
