JuJu Smith-Schuster Injury Updates

Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (knee) is "eyeing" a return for Sunday night's game against the Bills, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. JuJu has been out since suffering a knee injury and a concussion on the same play in Week 11. We'll track his practice participation this week. If he plays, he'll just be a WR3 in a tough matchup and with Pittsburgh deploying a conservative offense under QB Devlin Hodges.

Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (knee) is out for Sunday’s game against the Browns. He’s cleared the concussion protocol but remains sidelined with the knee injury. James Washington and Diontae Johnson will get another game as Pittsburgh’s top 2 WRs but are just WR4s in fantasy lineups with Devlin Hodges under center.

Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (concussion, knee) is out for Sunday's game against the Bengals. WR Diontae Johnson (concussion) isn't listed on the final injury report and will join WR James Washington in the starting lineup. Consider both of those guys WR3s with some upside vs. a Cincinnati squad that Football Outsiders ranks 31st in pass defense.

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports that Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (knee, concussion) isn't expected to play against the Bengals on Sunday. Fowler adds that the knee injury isn't serious, so JuJu seemingly has a shot to return for Week 13. We'll see if WR Diontae Johnson is able to clear the concussion protocol before the weekend. James Washington is Pittsburgh's top healthy WR right now.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster is suffered a knee injury on the same play on which he was concussed in Thursday night's loss to the Browns. His status for this weekend's game against the Bengals is "uncertain," per Schefter. We'll keep tabs on JuJu's status throughout this week.

Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (foot) is active for today’s game against the Rams. He was added to the injury report on Friday, but we haven't heard anything about JuJu being limited in this one.

ESPN's Dianna Russini hears that Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (foot) is expected to play against the Rams later today. He popped up on the injury report on Friday and is listed as questionable. We won't get his official game-time status until 3 pm ET, but it sounds like JuJu is safe to keep in Week 10 fantasy lineups.

Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (foot) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game against the Rams. He was added to the injury report on Friday and limited in practice. JuJu dealt with a toe injury earlier this season, although it's unclear if this is at all related. We'll look for updates on his status. Steelers-Rams doesn't kick off until 4:25 pm ET on Sunday.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster will be "a true game-time decision" with his toe injury today against the Ravens. The wideout did put in a full workout on Friday, which suggests he's likely to play. But this report points to how much the injury might be bothering him. Smith-Schuster will carry risk even if he's active for the game. Weigh that against your other lineup options. We'll update his status when inactives come out at 11:30 a.m. Eastern.

Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (toe) is officially questionable for this weekend's game against the Ravens. He was listed as a full participant in Friday's practice but told the media that he did the "bare minimum." We'd still be surprised if JuJu didn't play on Sunday considering he played through this injury last week. We'll get Pittsburgh's inactives around 11:30 am ET on Sunday.

Steelers OC Randy Fichtner said Thursday that WR JuJu Smith-Schuster is dealing with a toe injury. "JuJu got a little banged up early in that ball game last week," Fichtner said. "We held him a little bit today. Held him yesterday." Smith-Schuster was officially listed as "did not practice" on Wednesday, and it doesn't sound like he did much on Thursday. He was able to play through the injury on Monday night, so we're expecting him to play against the Ravens this weekend. But we'll continue to keep an eye on JuJu.

Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger needs surgery on his right elbow and will miss the rest of the 2019 season, HC Mike Tomlin announced Monday. We'll look for more details on the injury, but it's fair to wonder if this is the end for the 37-year-old Roethlisberger. It'll be Mason Rudolph under center for Pittsburgh the rest of this season. The 2018 3rd-rounder posted a 65% completion rate, 8.6 yards per attempt and 4 TDs vs. 1 INT this preseason. And he played well in relief of Big Ben vs. Seattle, completing 12 of 19 passes for 112 yards and 2 scores. Rudolph looks capable of at least keeping WR JuJu Smith-Schuster -- and potentially TE Vance McDonald -- afloat. It's also worth noting that he played his college ball with fellow Steeler James Washington. We'll see if they can rekindle some magic.

Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (toe) is not listed on the final injury report after getting in full practices on Thursday and Friday. He’s an elite WR1 vs. a Seahawks defense that just got lit up by Andy Dalton.

Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster suffered a toe injury late in Sunday night's loss to the Patriots. He's scheduled for further tests this week but told reporters after the game that he expects to be ready for Week 2. Former NFL head team Dr. David Chao believes Smith-Schuster is dealing with a "mild" sprain of his big toe based on video of the injury. We'll update this situation as we learn more.

Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (abdomen) isn’t listed on the final injury report after putting in a full practice on Friday. Keep the 2nd-year stud locked into fantasy lineups for Sunday night's game against the Ravens.

After sitting out on Wednesday, Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (abdomen) put in a limited practice on Thursday. The fact that he wasn't a full go means he's likely dealing with a legitimate injury, but there's no reason to believe he won't play against the Ravens on Sunday night.
