Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said James Conner is "a featured guy and proven runner when healthy."

“I’m a featured-runner type guy by mentality,” Tomlin said when asked about his plans at running back this upcoming season. "No question in today’s game, a featured runner needs to be supplemented and supplemented by guys who are capable of doing similar things in case he misses time...Usually when it’s going well, it’s because you have a lead dog out front, and that guy is the featured runner. James is a featured guy and proven runner when healthy. We’re excited about him getting back to health and displaying that in 2020." Tomlin also touched on Benny Snell and rookie Anthony McFarland as part of the team's plans this upcoming year, noting Snell is "capable of being a James-type of guy if James is unavailable." For what it's worth, he failed to mention Jaylen Samuels, Kerrith Whyte or Trey Edmunds when dissecting the backfield. It sounds as if Tomlin and the Steelers are prepared to feature Conner in the final year of his contract, but that of course entails the 25-year-old staying healthy throughout the year.
