Former Steelers Hal of Famer Running Back Rocky Bleier joined the Cook and Joe Show in studio on Wednesday to talk about the Steelers running backs as Le'Veon Bell continues to stay away...James Conner is running away with the job.

"He (Conner) has risen to the occasion.," Bleier said. "We may have the highest paid back up in the league when Bell returns.

Bell as a Backup?

That's right…he says there is no way Bell gets his starting job back unless there is an injury to Conner.

"I don't think they will unseat James." Bleier added. "That o-line blocking for him as a unit…And I think there is a relationship that has built there on that team for his style of running and how he operates."

Bleier thinks that Bell will return and serve as the backup which is a nice situation to have but barring injury it's Conner time here in Pittsburgh.
