Steelers running back James Conner, who injured his ankle during Sunday night’s loss to the Chargers, has already been ruled out for Week 14.  According to head coach Mike Tomlin, the injury is more serious than originally thought.

Conner’s injury is now being called a sprain after it was originally thought to be just a contusion.

The Steelers will likely be okay against the Raiders on Sunday.  They will need Conner and are hopeful that he will be able to return for their Week 15 match up against the Patriots.
