Mass Live

James Conner will miss his third straight game Sunday, the Pittsburgh Steelers announced Friday.

Conner, who didn’t practice all week, will once again be replaced by rookie Jaylen Samuels in the backfield as the Steelers take on the New Orleans Saints on the road.

Samuels rushed for 142 yards on 19 carries in the team’s Week 15 win over the New England Patriots.

Conner, who emerged as a standout performer this season in replacing holdout Le’Veon Bell, has rushed for 909 yards and 12 touchdowns to go with 467 receiving yards and one score.
