James Conner hasn’t been on the practice field too much over the course of the past couple of weeks. Roosevelt Nix hasn’t been available for most of the year. He’s on the Reserve/Injured List, in fact. That doesn’t mean they’re not still out there. And they’ve been there in recent weeks for rookie Benny Snell.
Following his 21-carry, 98-yard game against the Cincinnati Bengals, Snell talked about how Conner and Nix had been helping him get prepared coming off of his knee injury. They’ve been putting in the work with him, and so they’ve been taking a certain amount of pride in watching him have success as well.
