On Thursday night, the Cleveland Browns hosted the Pittsburgh Steelers in a pivotal matchup between AFC North foes.
The Steelers entered the game on a winning streak, but got off to a rocky start against the struggling Browns.
Cleveland raced out to an early 14-0 lead in the first half. However, that was just the start of the misery for Steelers fans.
Star running back James Conner, who suffered a shoulder injury three weeks ago against the Miami Dolphins, re-injured the shoulder. He’s been taken to the Pittsburgh locker room and is now questionable to return to the game.
Here’s the latest from the Steelers.

It’s a bad sign for an already struggling Steelers’ offense. Second-year quarterback Mason Rudolph has struggled to find consistency behind a shaky offensive line.
Thanks to the talented defense, Pittsburgh has remained competitive in most games, but if the offense fails to find the endzone, this game could get ugly.
Conner has been banged up all season, leaving the Steelers with backup Jaylen Samuels as the primary weapon.
Can the Steelers turn this around or will the offensive struggles lead to a blowout in a pivotal division game? We’ll find out.
Stay tuned for the latest on Conner.
