Denver Broncos

James Conner, Benny Snell expected to split carries vs. Broncos

The Pittsburgh Steelers running back went down in their win against the Giants after suffering an ankle injury in the second quarter and did not return.

Despite not starting the game, Snell finished Week 1 as the NFL's third leading rusher.

NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Conner is expected to split carries with Snell against the Denver Broncos.

Conner missed practice Wednesday but was a full participant on Thursday and Friday.

He missed six games last season due to a shoulder injury and his production declined tremendously.

It will be interesting to see if a healthy Snell can snag the starting role from Conner.
