Shark Bites

Steelers WR Diontae Johnson did not suffer a "serious [knee] injury" in the loss to the Raiders, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo. Johnson's status for Week 3 is uncertain, but "it’s not a long-term injury," Garafolo adds. We'll look for further updates, but Johnson owners can at least breath a slight sigh of relief.

Recent Shark Bites

Steelers WR Diontae Johnson is not participating in Pittsburgh’s offseason program. Citing Johnson’s social media posts, beat writer Mark Kaboly concludes that the WR wants a new contract. The 25-year-old is set for a contract year following a 107-catch season. Per Kaboly, the earliest an extension would likely come is September. We’ll see on that, but there’s no cause for concern unless Johnson sits out training camp.

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 WR Diontae Johnson (knee) practiced all week and isn't listed on the final injury report. He'll be back for Sunday's game vs. the Packers. Johnson racked up 22 targets over the first 2 games of the season and should be in for heavy volume again in Week 4.

Steelers WR Diontae Johnson (knee) was upgraded to full participation in Thursday's practice. He's on track to return for Sunday's game vs. the Packers. Even with a washed-up Ben Roethlisberger, Johnson's volume makes him a solid WR2 play.
