for their home opener against Kanas City.Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger James Harrison Jersey , cornerback Joe Haden and guard David DeCastro could all miss practice time after getting dinged up in a season-opening tie in Cleveland.Roethlisberger is dealing with a right (throwing) elbow issue, Haden has a hamstring problem and DeCastro fractured one of his hands during the four-hour marathon in a monsoon.Coach Mike Tomlin said Tuesday he will monitor their participation before making any sort of judgment on whether they will be available when the Chiefs (1-0) visit Heinz Field.The injuries don’t appear to be serious, with Haden the most likely candidate to sit out if his hamstring doesn’t recover in time.Tomlin described Roethlisberger’s achy elbow the byproduct of “the bumps and bruises associated with play.”Roethlisberger raised his concerns after the bizarre 21-21 tie in Cleveland, a game in which the 36-year-old turned the ball over five times, three on interceptions and twice on fumbles. Tomlin said Roethlisberger’s elbow had nothing to do with the miscues.DeCastro fractured his hand during the game but did not miss a play. The All-Pro cleared the way for a pair of touchdown runs by second-year running back James Conner, including a textbook kickout block on Conner’s 22-yard scoring run in the second quarter.If Haden is unable to play, the Steelers will turn to Cam Sutton to fill the void. Sutton grabbed his first career NFL interception when he picked off Tyrod Taylor‘s lob late in the fourth quarter. Sutton’s play was part of what Tomlin described as a “very positive” performance by his team’s restructured secondary.Tomlin also praised the new alignment at outside linebacker of T.J. Watt and Bud Dupree. The two switched sides during the offseason, with Dupree set up to go at the quarterback’s blind side. The two combined for five of Pittsburgh’s seven sacks, four of them going to Watt.The Steelers are also planning to get ready for Kansas City without All-Pro running back Le’Veon Bell, who remains out while waiting to sign his one-year franchise tender. Tomlin said he has not had any contact with Bell, who has dominated the Chiefs during his career. He is averaging 126.8 yards rushing against Kansas City in four regular-season games and racked up 170 yards in a divisional round win two years ago.Conner filled in capably for Bell in Cleveland, piling up 192 total yards on 36 touches. Tomlin is not concerned about relying too heavily on Conner, pointing out Conner was a workhorse during his college career at the University of Pittsburgh.“That’s one of the things that made him attractive Xavier Grimble Color Rush Jersey ,” Tomlin said.13View Gallery Gallery:FANTASY PLAYS: Week 2 pickups good, but no huge playersBob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports | Bob Donnan PITTSBURGH (AP) — The Pittsburgh Steelers aren’t surprised by the success of second-year running back James Conner.Conner continues to shine in the spotlight while two-time All-Pro running back Le’Veon Bell remains away from the team. Conner enjoyed a history-making day, accounting for more than 200 all-purpose yards during the Steelers’ 33-18 home win against Cleveland on Sunday.“He’s doing what he’s been doing the whole time,” Steelers right guard David DeCastro said. “He’s keeping his head down and running really hard. He’s a fun guy to block for.”Bell, who finished as the NFL’s third-leading rusher last season, still has not reported nor signed his one-year, $14.5 million franchise tender.Conner has taken full advantage while Bell has been away.He finished Sunday’s game with 212 all-purpose yards, just 25 fewer than the Browns totaled as a team. Conner, a 2017 third-round pick, rushed for 146 yards and two touchdowns. He also caught five passes for 66 yards.“I’m just doing what I love to do,” Conner said. “Just trying to be in the right spots for (quarterback) Ben (Roethlisberger) with the check-downs in the passing game, and just trying to put the ball in the right spots in the right game.”He also made history while he was at it.Conner is the first Steeler to rush for at least 100 yards and two touchdowns in three straight games. He eclipsed 100 yards rushing for the third straight game and fifth time this season.“He did a lot of good things (against Cleveland), running the ball and catching the ball for us https://www.steelerssportshop.com/Anthony-Chickillo-Jersey ,” Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey said. “He just looks good all the way around and runs the ball hard. He takes it very seriously and his preparation is very good. I can’t say enough about him.”Now, the rest of the league is taking notice.Conner’s nine touchdowns rank second in the NFL and his 599 rushing yards are third. Conner, a former University of Pittsburgh standout, is also tied for the most touchdown runs, and has the second-most yards from scrimmage — 922 — through the first seven games of a season in team history.“I had a front-row seat for his college exploits, so we are not surprised by his talents, play, demeanor, or his displays of will,” said Steelers coach Mike Tomlin, whose team shares a practice facility with Pitt.Conner rushed for 135 yards, gained 192 all-purpose yards and finished with two scores during the season opener at Cleveland. He has 281 yards rushing, 404 all-purpose and four touchdowns in two games against the Browns.It wasn’t easy for Conner on Sunday: Conner had 36 yards rushing on his first 12 carries. But on his next 12 James Conner Jersey , Conner added 110 yards rushing. By the third quarter, the fans at Heinz Field were chanting his name — “CON-NER,” ”CON-NER,” — when he finished the period with 114 all-purpose yards.“I’m proud of him,” Roethlisberger said. “It was so much fun to watch him go and work and be successful and hear the crowd love on him.”Conner didn’t allow the slow start to affect his play.“Things aren’t going to go our way the whole game,” Conner said. “You just have to have patience. We just wanted to stay focused and locked in.”Conner enjoyed a strong finish with 60 of 75 yards, including a 12-yard touchdown, during a third-quarter scoring drive that gave the Steelers an 11-point lead. He added a 22-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter.“It’s just a moment that we have to take advantage of late in the game,” Conner said. “We have the ball, trying to run the clock out and we need first downs. We’re just trying to move those chains and stay on the field.”Conner seeks a strong finish to the season, of course.“I’m just trying to be a better back every week,” Conner said. “I’m just running hard.”
