Pittsburgh Steelers running back James Conner reportedly has tested positive for COVID-19.

The Steelers’ Week 12 game against the Baltimore Ravens has already been postponed twice due to a COVID-19 outbreak for the Ravens.

Now, Conner seems to be a part of the potential outbreak in Pittsburgh.

Conner, 25, likely won’t play in Tuesday’s game if he tests positive again.

The star running back has been one of Pittsburgh’s best players this season.

He has carried the ball 145 times for 645 yards and five touchdowns.

Conner testing positive is certainly concerning considering he has had and beaten cancer in the past.

The Steelers and the rest of the NFL certainly hope that Conner has a quick and easy recovery from COVID-19.

The Steelers and Ravens are still tentatively scheduled to face off on Tuesday.
