Date:

Bills signed FB John Conner.

"The Terminator" has a long history with coach Rex Ryan, having played for him across two different stints with the Jets. Conner will most likely only be a camp body in Buffalo as insurance behind top lead blocker Jerome Felton.

Jets signed FB John Conner.

Conner will replace Tommy Bohanon, who suffered a broken clavicle in Sunday's loss. He spent part of the last two seasons with the Giants and was waived during final cuts.
Tue, Sep 30, 2014 11:57:00 AM

Giants released FB John Conner.

Conner was competing with Henry Hynoski. Conner hasn't done much since being nicknamed "The Terminator" by Rex Ryan on Hard Knocks in 2010.
Sat, Aug 30, 2014 09:16:00 AM

Giants signed FB John Conner to a two-year contract.

The Terminator lives. Conner, famous for his roles on two separate seasons of Hard Knocks, is on to replace Henry Hynoski. The Hynoceros sustained a fractured shoulder against the Panthers in Week 3. Conner, a punishing lead-blocker, is certainly a fine replacement as the Giants try to spark their running game.

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.
Tue, Sep 24, 2013 11:46:00 AM

Bengals waived FB John Conner.

Terminated. It's a surprise because "Terminator" Conner out-blocked Orson Charles in Bengals camp, but the organization is higher on Charles' upside in the fullback role. Conner may generate some interest at his $630,000 cost.
Sat, Aug 31, 2013 10:08:00 AM

Bengals signed FB John Conner.

The Jets waived Conner due to injuries in October. He was dealing with a hamstring issue and sprained MCL at the time, but has been reportedly training for the last seven weeks. The former "Hard Knocks" star will replace FB Chris Pressley, who was placed on injured reserve with a knee injury.
Sat, Dec 15, 2012 12:36:00 PM

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.
Wed, Oct 17, 2012 12:59:00 PM

Jets declared FB John Conner, QB Greg McElroy, DB Donnie Fletcher, DE Damon Harrison, OT Dennis Landolt, TE Dustin Keller, and OG Caleb Schlauderaff inactive for Week 3 against the Dolphins.

No real surprises here. Keller (hamstring) and Conner (knee) are injured. Darrelle Revis is healthy and starting. Fletcher was just signed off the practice squad. The rest of the players here are weekly healthy scratches.
Sun, Sep 23, 2012 11:38:00 AM

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.
Sat, Sep 22, 2012 02:12:00 PM

Jets FB John Conner (MCL) has "avoided serious injury," and is day-to-day.

Conner aggravated an MCL sprain in yesterday'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.
Mon, Sep 17, 2012 01:13:00 PM

Jets FB John Conner aggravated his knee injury during Sunday's loss to the Steelers.

Conner came into the game with a sprained MCL and tweaked it. He'll have an MRI on Monday.
Sun, Sep 16, 2012 09:30:00 PM

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. Antonio Cromartie (shoulder), WR Stephen Hill (calf), and NT Sione Pouha (lower back) are all officially listed as probable.
Sat, Sep 15, 2012 07:33:00 PM

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.
