Pittsburgh's matchup against the Bengals in the season finale represents a win-or-go-home scenario for a playoff-hopeful Steelers team, and potentially having Conner back on the field could go a long way in determining success. The next two days of practice should help put in focus whether Conner will play.
The Steelers can clinch the AFC North with a win, and then need the Cleveland Browns to defeat or tie the Ravens. The Steeler can also clinch the division with a tie and a Ravens' loss. To clinch the playoff berth, the Steelers need to win and hope the Indianapolis Colts-Tennessee Titans matchup ends in a tie.
On the season, Conner has rushed for 909 yards and 12 touchdowns on 201 carries, adding 467 yards receiving and a touchdown on 52 catches.
