James Conner shares emotional moment with Steelers fan prior to Browns game
There is bad blood between the Cleveland Browns and Pittsburgh Steelers, but both teams can agree on James Conner being a feel-good story. Ahead of Sunday’s game versus the Browns, Conner shared an emotional moment with a Pittsburgh fan.
What a moment 🙏

One of the fans that the Steelers’ running back took a picture with was diagnosed with a rare form of sarcoma—a form of cancer. Of course, before Conner came into the NFL, he was diagnosed with stage 2 Hodgkins lymphoma while he attended the University of Pittsburgh.
When he was diagnosed, Conner was given about a week to live. In the end, he overcame the disease and has made himself a remarkable career in the NFL.
While Conner won’t be in uniform on Sunday, he’s still making a difference for the Steelers off of the field.
