Conner appeared in the locker room after the game and was walking with a noticeable limp, but didn't take any questions from reporters. Ben Roethlisberger was asked about his starting running back and said he didn't want to speculate not knowing the full extent of the injury. Wide receiver Antonio Brown was disappointed to see Conner go down with an injury.

“You never want to see a guy like that go down,” said Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown, who recorded a season-high 154 yards on Sunday. “But like we said, every guy in a helmet is upholding the standard, and anyone can be the reason we win.”

Conner has dealt with multiple MCL injuries in the past and also spent some time in the concussion protocol earlier this season and the hope is that this injury won't sideline him for long.

If Conner does have to miss time the Steelers will probably turn to Jaylen Samuels who only has 12 attempts on the season for 31 yards.

Conner had been struggling a bit coming into Sunday's game but had turned it around rushing for 60 yards and two touchdowns, and losing him could really have an effect on the rest of the Steelers season. The Steelers next game is against the Oakland Raiders on Sunday.
