Conner signed for the Steelers in 2017. He was a third-round draft pick and had a decent rookie year with the Steelers. However, he struggled with injuries over the last two years. Conner rushed for 464 yards and registered three touchdowns in 2019. He will look to add to that tally this year.

He had multiple shoulder injuries in 2019. Despite these setbacks, Conner is hoping to make a strong return with the Steelers this year. The Steelers have missed the playoffs for the last two seasons. They will hope to change the record this year which could be their last with star quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.

It must be noted that Mike Tomlin has gone 13 years without registering a losing season. If he maintains that this year, he will equal legendary coach Ben Schottenheimer for the longest-stretch of non-losing seasons in NFL history. Ben Schottenheimer achieved that record while coaching Cleveland Browns and Kansas City Chiefs between 1984 and 1997.
