Pitt RB James Conner back at practice just two months after Hodgkin’s lymphoma diagnosis
Pittsburgh Panthers star James Conner is showing he hasn’t lost any of his grit while battling cancer.
If anything, it’s only ramped up the bruising running back’s spirit and tenacity. Two months after his diagnosis with Hodgkin’s lymphoma, the standout junior is back practicing with the Panthers.
On Saturday morning Pitt head coach Pat Narduzzi tweeted out a video showing Conner flying through a shuttle drill with the rest of his teammates watching.

Conner later tweeted Saturday morning:
The drill was sloppy but it was the 1st time doing that drill since knee surgery and chemo treatments, I will be in great shape game day!
