Arizona Cardinals running back James Conner has suffered what appears to be an ankle injury in the third quarter of their matchup with the Raiders. He got his ankle/foot taped up on the sideline, but hasn’t returned to the game and is now considered questionable to return.

Conner had seven carries for 25 yards and two receptions for 26 yards before leaving the game. Behind him, Eno Benjamin and Darrell Williams have split work. Benjamin appears to be the lead back if Conner were to miss time, but he likely wouldn’t get the lion’s share for fantasy football.
