Pittsburgh will help pay for RB James Conner’s treatment

-

Pittsburgh Panthers running back James Conner was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma just a couple short weeks ago. It was a devastating diagnosis, but he is in good spirits and is set to begin chemotherapy in order to treat the disease. According to a report from NCAA.com, Pittsburgh will help pay for his treatment.

Conner was at one point considered a top running back in the nation and a future NFL talent.

Throughout the 26 games with the Panthers, Conner rushed 452 times for 2,641 yards and 36 touchdowns. He combined excellent speed and athleticism with a ferocity that many running backs lack. Seeing him go through this is tough and our prayers are with him.

Whether this will end his football career or not is another question. Players have come back from cancer treatment in the past and there is no denying that Conner has the motivation to do just that, especially with his coaches and teammates behind him.
