of course. 

i'm sure Conner is a-ok after calling himself a GTD. 

cool. 

I do not own Conner and picked up Samuels. Somebody really wants him out this week......

Snell is banged up too so this could be insurance for either player.

 

Marble Mouf himself said insurance for Conner ...

We won't know his status until the weekend I am sure. There is more of an indication he will play than not. Snell is also hurt, so the ps RB signing could be for a variety of reasons.

right. 

except for the teeeny tiny fact that Teflon Tomlin is cited in the post right above yours as saying it's insurance for Conner. 

but, yeah ... carry on.

How are you getting there is more indication he will play from?

He clearly got hurt and they clearly just added another RB. These are signs it's more likely he doesn't play.

He and Snell were both hurt. The only quotes we have are Tomlin saying he will be limited this week and Conner saying he hopes he can play Sunday. I'd give it a 60/40 chance he plays. I won't be too mad if he sits though - I'd much rather he do that than sustain a season ending or multigame absence.

... or have him suit up, get 3 touches, then leave for the rest of the game because he got dinged again ... that is what most concerns me.

Stillers sign ps RB ... 

so, as some of you were all saying about this being "nothing"?  how we feelin' now?

🤔

Conner will likely be out 1-2 games, I bet. Not ideal, but still.

The Steelers aren't really known for doing that. If Conner is good enough to play, he'll play.  If he's not, then he'll be inactive.

DNP today.

Obviously doesn't hurt to post it, but it really doesn't matter if he practices yet.  If he is still a DNP on Friday, then there can be some legit concern.

I've already written off Connor for Week 9. Thanks Tomlin.

 

Marble Mouf needs to be taking more heat for this ... Edmunds would've sufficed killing what little clock was left, and the 'Fins offense was being steamrolled by that Stillers D. 

Tomlin is a buffoon.

So can I interpret this to mean "It's nothing"?

 

Can interpret it as "time will tell (Friday)". But early indications not looking too promising for him suiting up.

The most telling thing for me was when Conner said earlier in the week that he's gotta do what's best for the team. That's generally not what you hear from a guy who's planning on suiting up.

He is a lot closer to "Doubtful" than "Questionable"

Sitting him. Ac joint is painful. It is separated shoulder. Takes two weeks for mild, four weeks for normal, eight weeks for bad.

I doubt he suits up this week. He needs a week to heal that shoulder up a long with anything else that's possibly nagging from previous weeks. Samuels will be the workhorse and very capable of doing it.
