PITTSBURGH (AP) — The Pittsburgh Steelers are hoping running back James Conner’s sprained left ankle will be ready in time to play on Sunday against New England.The AFC North leaders listed Conner as questionable to face the Patriots in a pivotal game for the Steelers (7-5-1). They’ve dropped three straight and lead Baltimore by just a half-game for the top spot in the division. Conner sat out last week’s loss to Oakland after injuring the ankle in the fourth quarter against the Los Angeles Chargers on Dec. 2.Conner is sixth in the NFL with 909 yards rushing and second with 12 rushing touchdowns. Pittsburgh struggled to move the ball on the ground in Conner’s absence against the Raiders James White Jersey , finishing with a season-low 55 yards. Jaylen Samuels and Stevan Ridley will split time in the backfield if Conner is unable to play.Steelers right tackle Marcus Gilbert will miss his eighth straight game with a knee injury. Wide receiver Ryan Switzer is listed as questionable after tweaking an ankle.After bringing in two kickers for a tryout this week, Pittsburgh is sticking with Chris Boswell. Coach Mike Tomlin confirmed Friday that Boswell, a Pro Bowler in 2017, will handle the kicking duties against New England.Boswell has missed 11 combined kicks this season Authentic Stephen Gostkowski Jersey , including two field goals against the Raiders. The team brought in former kicker Shaun Suisham this week to serve as a mentor to help Boswell out of his slump. The New England Patriots played a thrilling prime time game against the visiting Kansas City Chiefs. Naturally, emotions ran high after a Stephen Gostkowski field goal as time expired sealed the Patriots’ 43-40 win. How high? Tom Brady, for example looked pretty hyped up following what was his all-time record 200th regular season victory as a starting quarterback (via NBCS Camera Guys):After talking to the NFL’s second best tight end, the Chiefs’ Travis Kelce Matthew Slater Jersey Salute to Service , Brady had some one-on-one time with the NFL’s best tight end, the Patriots’ own Rob Gronkowski. And Brady shared some interesting plans he apparently has for the both of them: “Are you kidding me?” the 41-year old asked Gronkowski. “We’re playing forever. You know that.”Well, there you have it. Tom Brady will never retire, and as long as he is here neither will Rob Gronkowski. Sometimes Ryan Allen Jersey , life is just not fair to you if you are a defensive coordinator in the NFL. On a more serious note, though, it certainly is encouraging to see both Brady and Gronkowski enjoying the game after retirement rumors surrounded the duo all offseason long – no matter what the quarterback actually meant by his statement.
