Steelers running back James Conner celebrates his touchdown in the firs quarter against the Panthers Thursday, Nov. 8, 2018 at Heinz Field.

In an apparent sign he is progressing well through concussion protocol, James Conner was again a full participant in Pittsburgh Steelers practice Thursday.

The running back left the team’s most recent game a week prior because of concussion symptoms, but he and coach Mike Tomlin expressed optimism Conner will be cleared to play in the next game Sunday at Jacksonville.

Conner also practiced fully Wednesda. The final practice of the week is Friday.

Starting right tackle Marcus Gilbert sat out practice again and is on track to miss his fourth consecutive game because of a knee injury.

Guard Ramon Foster did not practice, but his veteran status has earned him all Thursdays off this season from Tomlin.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
