Kliff Kingsbury said that Arizona Cardinals running back James Conner will reportedly be a gametime decision against the Seattle Seahawks, per Tyler Drake. Conner is dealing with a rib injury and has struggled to stay healthy in 2022. He was ruled out last week against the Minnesota Vikings.

James Conner has endured a difficult season even when on the field. The Cardinals running back has tallied just 200 rushing yards in 5 games. He’s also scored just 1 touchdown. The Cardinals were hopeful that he would play a pivotal role in the offense this year. Conner is fresh off of a 2021 campaign that saw him score a career high 15 rushing touchdowns.

James Conner’s performance in 2022 sums up the Cardinals’ season a whole. They made the playoffs last year and entered this season with fairly high expectations. But they are heading into Week 9 sporting a 3-5 record. However, the Cardinals play in the lackluster NFC West division. Although Arizona is technically last in the standings, they are just a couple of games behind the division leading Seahawks.
