According to Pittsburgh Post Gazette's Gerry Dulac, Steelers running back James Conner is not expected to play Sunday against the Los Angeles Rams. Conner will miss his second-consecutive game with a shoulder injury that he suffered at the end of the team's matchup with the Miami Dolphins. 

Update: Conner has officially been ruled out by the team after not participating in their final practice. Trey Edmunds did practice and is not listed on their injury report.

Steelers reporter, Missi Matthews, spoke with Mike Tomlin about the team's running back situation, saying they've dealt with this all season and will continue to fight with who they have available.

Last week, the Steelers turned to Jaylen Samuels as the lead back against the Indianapolis Colts. Samuels rushed the ball only 8 times for 10 yards but contributed with 13 receptions for 73 yards. 

Trey Edmunds was also a part of the offense, rushing the ball 12 times for 73 yards. Edmunds has also been on the Steelers' injury report dealing with a rib issue that he suffered in Week 9. 

Pittsburgh called former Oregon Duck, Tony Brooks-James up from the practice squad after ruling Conner out last week. They also added Darrin Hall to the practice squad this week. 

Conner has 380 yards and 4 touchdowns through seven games this season, including his first 100-yard performance against the Dolphins in Week 8.
