Rookie RB shines in Steelers' victory

PITTSBURGH — Rookie running back James Conner set up Pittsburgh’s winning fourth-quarter touchdown pass in the Steelers’ 17-13 exhibition victory over the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday.

Conner, the former University of Pittsburgh star who overcame Hodgkin’s lymphoma and a serious right knee injury to reach the NFL, broke off runs of 17 and 19 yards, leading to Bart Houston’s 6-Yard touchdown pass to Justin Hunter.

Bryant, who is still in the process of being fully reinstated by the league, remains suspended, but is permitted to participate in all Preseason activities — including practices and games.

CARSON, Calif. — Alvin Kamara ran for a 50-yard touchdown and the New Orleans Saints beat the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday night.

Chase Daniel was 7 of 12 for 80 yards in place of Drew Brees, finding Michael Thomas for a 28-yard reception to help set up Wil Lutz’s 53-yard field goal midway through the first quarter.
