James Conner left in the fourth quarter of the Steelers' Monday night win over the Dolphins with a shoulder injury. Early reports said Conner was suffering a clavicle injury, something that could've sidelined him for an extended period of time. 

Conner is now looking at a less-serious injury with an AC joint injury in his shoulder, according to Mike Tomlin. He was seen leaving Heinz Field in a sling following the game. Conner rushed for 145 yards and a touchdown against the Dolphins, eclipsing 100-yards for the first time this season. 

Tomlin said he'd have more of a report during the team's usual press conference on Tuesday. The Steelers also lost Benny Snell Jr. to a knee injury during the game. With Jaylen Samuels recovering from a knee sprain, the team was down to Trey Edmunds by their final drive of the game. 

Conner has rushed for 380 yards this season, including 186-yards over the last two weeks.
