The Pittsburgh Steelers had a few extra days to gear up for the team’s game against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday. After decimating the Carolina Panthers on Thursday night, Pittsburgh received a few extra rest days.
Pittsburgh shocked the football world by completing a 52-21 win over the Panthers. Many expected to see a close, hard fought battle, but the Steelers waltzed all over Carolina to extend their winning streak to five games.
It wasn’t all sunshine and rainbows for the Steelers, though. Running back James Conner exited the game with a head injury and was later diagnosed with a concussion.
After not practicing earlier in the week, Conner was a full participant in practice on Wednesday. That’s according to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler.

That’s great news for the Steelers as the team looks to avenge its playoff loss to the Jaguars from last season. Conner will be a large part of the team’s success on Sunday.
Pittsburgh and Jacksonville kick off on Sunday at 1:00 p.m. ET on CBS.
