Steelers running back James Conner will be starting on Sunday after Le’Veon Bell failed to show up for a second straight week. He took to Twitter on Saturday to show off his Mac Miller tribute cleats.

Miller, who recently passed away due to a suspected overdose, was a Pittsburgh area native and huge fan of all of the Pittsburgh sports teams.
Expect another decent game out of the second year running back, who had 31 carries for 135 yards and two touchdowns. You can tack on a few extra yards for the cleats themselves.
The Steelers are hoping to get in the win column this weekend. Last week’s the with the Browns wasn’t a good look.
