Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (shoulder) is active for tonight's Wild Card game vs. the Chiefs. We'd be surprised if he played anything close to a full slate of snaps in his first action since early October.

7:21pm EST 1/16/22

Steelers RB Najee Harris (elbow) is active for tonight's Wild Card game vs. the Chiefs. He put in a full practice on Friday and should be able to play his usual role in this one.

The Steelers have activated WR JuJu Smith-Schuster from IR, making him eligible to play in Sunday's game against the Chiefs. He had previously said he'd take part. It's tough to know just how much we can expect, though, from a guy who is coming off October shoulder surgery. Smith-Schuster is no more than a fringe fantasy football consideration for what will likely be Pittsburgh's lone playoff game.

Steelers RB Najee Harris (elbow) has been removed from the injury report. It's confirmation that he'll play vs. the Chiefs on Sunday night after putting in a full practice on Friday.

Steelers RB Najee Harris (elbow) is listed as questionable for Sunday's Wild Card game vs. the Chiefs. He put in a full practice on Friday, so he seems likely to play. We'll keep you updated on Harris' status and get Pittsburgh's inactives around 7 pm ET on Sunday.

Steelers RB Najee Harris (elbow) missed practice again on Thursday. HC Mike Tomlin said the plan is for Harris to practice on Friday before the team decides whether he can play vs. the Chiefs on Sunday. Harris' absence would leave Benny Snell as Pittsburgh's likely lead back.

Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (shoulder) returned to practice on Thursday. He's been out since suffering a shoulder injury in Week 5 that required surgery. He was supposed to miss the rest of the season and still seems like a big long shot to play vs. the Chiefs this weekend. But we'll keep an eye on him.

Steelers RB Najee Harris (elbow) did not practice on Wednesday. Harris eventually returned to last week's win over the Ravens after suffering this injury, so we're expecting him to be ready for Sunday's Wild Card game vs. the Chiefs. But Harris' status is worth monitoring over the next few days.

Steelers RB Najee Harris hurt his elbow on the 1st series of Sunday's game vs. the Ravens. The team is calling him "probable" to return, but Harris has remained on the sideline. We'll update his status when we know more.

Update: Harris returned midway through the 3rd quarter.

The Steelers on Saturday placed WR James Washington on the COVID list. Washington wasn't headed for a big role, with Diontae Johnson back on the active roster. His deactivation, though, locks in Ray-Ray McCloud as a top-3 WR for the upside matchup with Baltimore. Pittsburgh also activated lead CB Joe Haden and C Kendrick Green from the COVID list, making them available for the Ravens game.

Steelers WR Diontae Johnson has been activated from the COVID list. He should be available for his usual role in Sunday's finale vs. the Ravens.

The Steelers placed WR Diontae Johnson on the COVID list Thursday, which should knock him out for Sunday's regular-season finale at Baltimore. Johnson's absence leaves Chase Claypool, James Washington and Ray-Ray McCloud as Pittsburgh's top 3 WRs for a high-ceiling matchup with the bad Ravens pass D. All 3 will be worth a look in fantasy football lineups at varying levels.

Steelers TE Pat Freiermuth (concussion) isn't listed on the final injury report after putting in a full week of practice. He'll play vs. the Browns on Monday night but sits well outside the top 12 in our Week 17 TE Rankings.

The Steelers on Friday placed LB Joe Schobert and DE Chris Wormley on the COVID list, knocking them out for Monday night's game against the Browns. Robert Spillane figures to get another start at LB for Pittsburgh.

Steelers TE Pat Freiermuth (concussion) put in a full practice on Thursday. He's on track to return for Monday night's game vs. the Browns, barring a setback between now and then. Freiermuth averaged just 3.7 targets and 3 catches over his last 3 healthy games, so he's a fringe fantasy option.

Steelers HC Mike Tomlin said Tuesday that TE Pat Freiermuth has a chance to play Monday night against the Browns, according to the team website. Freiermuth missed last week's loss to the Chiefs with a concussion. We'll see about his practice participation beginning Thursday.

Steelers TE Pat Freiermuth (concussion) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Chiefs. No surprise after he suffered his 2nd concussion of the season last week. Zach Gentry will step in as Pittsburgh’s lead TE but isn’t a viable fantasy play.

The Steelers on Wednesday placed LB Devin Bush on the COVID list. That likely knocks him out for Sunday's game at Kansas City. Bush's absence wouldn't be a big loss for either the Pittsburgh defense or IDP lineups, though. Robert Spillane figures to start next to Joe Schobert if Bush is out.

Steelers DL Chris Wormley left Sunday's game against the Titans with a groin injury. We'll see about the severity.

Steelers TE Pat Freiermuth sustained a concussion in Sunday's game vs. the Titans and is done for the day. It's his 2nd concussion of the season, which might hurt his chances of getting cleared for Week 16. We'll track Freiermuth's progress through the protocol.
