Steelers RB Conner questionable against Patriots

PITTSBURGH (AP) The Pittsburgh Steelers are hoping running back James Conner's sprained left ankle will be ready in time to play on Sunday against New England.

The AFC North leaders listed Conner as questionable to face the Patriots in a pivotal game for the Steelers (7-5-1). They've dropped three straight and lead Baltimore by just a half-game for the top spot in the division. Conner sat out last week's loss to Oakland after injuring the ankle in the fourth quarter against the Los Angeles Chargers on Dec. 2.

Conner is sixth in the NFL with 909 yards rushing and second with 12 rushing touchdowns. Pittsburgh struggled to move the ball on the ground in Conner's absence against the Raiders, finishing with a season-low 55 yards. Jaylen Samuels and Stevan Ridley will split time in the backfield if Conner is unable to play.
