(AP) -- Pittsburgh running back James Conner says he is cancer-free, less than six months after being diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma.

Conner posted on his Twitter account Monday: "God is AMAZING. Just got the call that my body is clean of cancer!!!" Been a long road but God has my back. Thanks everyone who said prayers!"
