JuJu Smith-Schuster Injury Updates

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.

Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (hamstring) is active for today’s game against the Patriots. He popped up on the injury report on Thursday and was limited again in Friday's practice. That adds some risk to the rookie’s fantasy profile, but he also carries plenty of upside in a likely shootout.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (hamstring) is expected to play against the Patriots. The rookie popped up on the injury report on Thursday and was limited on Friday. The hammy adds some risk to his Week 15 outlook, but Smith-Schuster also brings plenty of upside in what should be a shootout.

Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (hamstring) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game against the Patriots. He was added to the injury report on Thursday and was limited again in Friday's practice. We'll look for an update on Smith-Schuster on Sunday morning. Steelers-Patriots doesn't kick off until 4:25 pm ET.

Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster was added to Thursday's injury report as limited with a hamstring. Remember that he missed Week 12 with a hamstring injury -- although it's unclear if this is related. Check back tomorrow for another update on Smith-Schuster's status. He'll be a WR3 with upside if the hammy isn't an issue against the Patriots on Sunday.

Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (hamstring) put in a full week of practice and isn't listed on the final injury report. He'll play against the Bengals on Monday night and will see an uptick in targets if WR Antonio Brown's toe injury keeps him out.

Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (hamstring) is out for Sunday night's game against the Packers. While we haven't heard much concern about his injury, he didn't practice all week and can't be considered a lock to return for Week 13. Smith-Schuster's absence should mean a bigger role for WR Martavis Bryant in a plus matchup. But we simply haven't seen enough from him this year to be anything more than a risk/reward WR3 play.

Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (hamstring) did not practice on Wednesday. HC Mike Tomlin called it a "small" hamstring injury on Tuesday and said that Smith-Schuster will be monitored throughout the week. We'll see if the rookie is able to get back on the practice field tomorrow.

Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (concussion) isn’t listed on the final Week 8 injury report. He’s cleared the protocol and will play against the Lions on Sunday night. The rookie had already been out-snapping Martavis Bryant but could see a few extra targets with Bryant expected to be a healthy scratch.

Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster returned to practice on Monday -- just a few days after sustaining a concussion in the preseason opener. The head injury is worth filing away, but Smith-Schuster's 2017 outlook is unaffected for now. He's battling for snaps behind Antonio Brown and Martavis Bryant.

Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster missed most of the team's 1st training-camp practice Friday after suffering an apparently minor ankle injury on the 3rd play, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Smith-Schuster returned with the ankle taped for a few reps at the end of practice, so we'll see whether the issue persists. His absence allowed Justin Hunter to get a lot of field time, with Martavis Bryant still working through reinstatement and Sammie Coates (knee) on the PUP list.
