As if Ben Roethlisberger's injury was not worrying enough, the Pittsburgh offense has brought another blow.
The Steelers team announced for the third year running James Conner that it is doubtful to return to the opening game on Sunday against Seahawks.
Conner suffered a left knee injury in the second half and was discharged from the pitch, although he managed to reach the medical tent under his authority.
Steelers have also lost full-back Vince Williams and safety Sean Davis due to injuries.

Conner 11 was carrying 33 yards, a touchdown and three catches for 12 yards on Sunday. He had 10 rush for 21 yards and four catches for 44 yards in a loss of 30 points opening season in New England.
With Conner out, the Steelers will rely on some combination of Gailen Samuels and Benny Snell Jr. Snell, choosing the fourth round of the 2019 draft, did not get a loss in last week's explosion to the Patriot but had one rush for 23 yards on Sunday. Samuel had three campaigns 18 yards away and one 13 yards reception desk.
