James Conner (ankle) good to go for Week 17
30 December 2018
Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette confirms James Conner (questionable, ankle) will play Week 17 against the Bengals.
Conner practiced fully throughout the week, though the Steelers still wanted to see him warm up before declaring him active for Sunday's all-important regular season finale. Jaylen Samuels will revert to a backup role after filling in for Conner the past three games. Coming off a high-ankle sprain, the first-time Pro Bowler enters Sunday's game just 91 yards shy of 1,000.
