After missing almost all of the 2015 season, All-ACC Pitt running back James Conner's year got even worse when he was diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma in December. But incredibly, just two months later, Conner is back at practice and plans to play in 2016.
Coach Pat Narduzzi tweeted out a video of him completing a drill on Saturday:

Conner offered this analysis:
The drill was sloppy but it was the 1st time doing that drill since knee surgery and chemo treatments, I will be in great shape game day!— James Conner ️ (@JamesConner_) February 13, 2016
What an inspiration.
