Steelers grab Pitt star, cancer survivor James Conner

PITTSBURGH (AP) A year ago, James Conner was in the middle of chemotherapy treatment as it waged a battle against Hodgkin's Lymphoma that left the Pittsburgh star running back drained but resolute.

Conner never doubted he'd make the NFL. Even as the drugs sapped his strength and wreaked havoc on his immune system.

Then the phone rang on Friday night as the third round of the 2017 NFL draft neared a close. It was the Pittsburgh Steelers offering him a job. And just like that, Conner's journey from cancer patient to cancer survivor to professional football player was over.
