Pittsburgh running back James Conner stopped by "The Ellen Show" this week to discuss his return to football after a battle with Hodgkin's lymphoma.

Ellen decided to take the opportunity and surprise Conner with the chance to meet one of his idols Eric Berry, former Tennessee Vol and current Kansas City Chiefs safety who fought the same type of cancer last year.

Check out Conner's interview with Ellen about his diagnosis, treatment and getting back on the football field before he finally meets face-to-face with four-time Pro Bowl safety.

It's heartwarming to hear both players share their stories and advice for overcoming the adversity in their lives. Both Conner and Berry continue to be an inspiration.
