Rookie Conner stars in Steelers' 17-13 win over Falcons

PITTSBURGH (AP) James Conner overcame Hodgkin's lymphoma and a serious right knee injury to reach the NFL. He showed in his Pittsburgh Steelers debut Sunday that he plans to stick around for a while.

The rookie running back from the University of Pittsburgh broke off runs of 17 and 19 yards, leading to Bart Houston's go-ahead, 6-yard touchdown pass to Justin Hunter in the fourth quarter of Pittsburgh's 17-13 exhibition victory over the Atlanta Falcons.

Conner was greeted with an ovation on the third series of the game when he made his first carry. The third-round pick busted off three other runs longer than 10 yards and had 98 yards rushing on 20 carries.
