John Conner RB NYG 2 Months
Free agent FB John Conner is working out for the Bills Tuesday.
It's the first known interest he's had since being waived by the Bengals. If signed, Connor would replace struggling FB Frank Summers. The Bills primarily use their running game out of singleback and shotgun formations.

Jets waived FB John Conner with an injury settlement and promoted LB Marcus Dowtin from their practice squad.
Conner gained fame on "Hard Knocks" thanks to his bone-bruising blocks on special teams, but the Jets quickly soured on his lead-blocking ability. An MCL sprain sealed the deal here.

Jets FB John Conner (knee) has been ruled out for Week 3 against the Dolphins.
Conner has been dealing with an MCL issue for the past two weeks. Going up against a stout Miami run defense, Shonn Greene is a fantasy situation to stay far away from. The Jets will also be without tight end Dustin Keller.

Jets FB John Conner (MCL) has "avoided serious injury," and is day-to-day.
Conner aggravated an MCL sprain in Sunday's loss, but could be ready for Sunday's tilt with the Dolphins. The Jets' running game struggled mightily against the Steelers, but it's doubtful Conner's absence was a major factor.

John Conner (knee) is listed as questionable for Week 2 against the Steelers.
Conner was active for the season opener, but was limited in practice this week with a knee injury. The Jets would be forced to use two tight ends in their rushing offense if Conner is ruled out. Special teamer Isaiah Trufant is also officially questionable.

Jets FB John Conner is not assured of a spot on the team's 53-man roster.
TE Josh Baker is a lock to make the team and can play the position. ESPN New York's Rich Cimini points to the diminishing role of the fullback as the reason why Conner may not stick, but the Jets intend in relying heavily on the run. It would be a moderate surprise if the "Terminator" was waived.
