On Sunday afternoon, the Pittsburgh Steelers and Jacksonville Jaguars will face off in a rematch of the AFC playoffs. Jacksonville won that contest and then lost to the New England Patriots in the AFC title game.

Despite finding success last season, the Jaguars enter this game on a five-game losing streak. Meanwhile, the Steelers are streaking in the opposite direction - winners of the last five including a massive blowout against the Carolina Panthers.

Pittsburgh's win over Carolina was soured some by the loss of running back James Conner who left the game with a concussion.

Conner has put in a full week of practice and was removed from the injury report, but still hasn't been cleared in the concussion protocol, according to NFL.com.

Running back James Conner (concussion) is off of the injury report, but he has not been officially cleared from concussion protocol.

With a full week of practice under his belt, it looks like Conner will be back on the field Sunday afternoon. The former Pitt star will have the backfield to himself, with no questions about the return of Le'Veon Bell looming over the organization.

Pittsburgh and Jacksonville kick off at 1:00 p.m. ET on CBS.
