Arizona Cardinals running back James Conner has been activated to the active, 53-man roster before tomorrow’s game against the Atlanta Falcons at State Farm Stadium in Glendale.

Originally, Conner’s game status was labeled as “questionable” this morning, so this comes as a surprise to most.

This comes after quarterback Kyler Murray was named the starting quarterback following 11 months on the sidelines with an ACL injury.

Previously, Conner started in five games for Arizona this season before sitting on the sidelines.

Additionally, the two-time Pro Bowl RB rushed for 364 yards on 68 carries.

Furthermore, Conner has ran into the end-zone twice to record two touchdowns.

However, Conner suffered a knee injury on Oct. 8 in the 34-20 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals.

Then, the Cardinals placed Conner on the I.R. on Oct. 10 and he has been out since.

Conner returned to practice on Nov. 8 as he was designated to return from injured reserve by Arizona.

Moreover, it may be a quicker turnaround than expected since Conner could have used a three-week practice window granted to him after his return.

Overall, Conner has ran for 4200 yards on 984 attempts and scored 46 touchdowns in his career.

Now, Conner, alongside Murray, will make their long-anticipated comebacks in Glendale tomorrow.

But, it is not clear if Conner will start or have limited reps due to an instant return.

If more information on this situation arises, Burn City Sports will keep you up-to-date.
