Shark Bites

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.

Recent Shark Bites

Steelers WR Diontae Johnson caught 4 balls for 63 yards on 5 targets to lead a lackluster passing effort in Sunday's win over the Saints. TE Pat Freiermuth tied Johnson for the team lead in catches. RB Jaylen Warren and WR George Pickens checked in next at 3 receptions apiece, with rookie TE Connor Hayward the only other Steeler to catch multiple passes. Week 11 brings a Bengals defense that has been better than New Orleans'.

The Steelers managed just 196 passing yards on 40 attempts (4.9 per attempt) in Sunday's lopsided loss to the Eagles. QB Kenny Pickett threw for 191 yards and an INT while taking 6 sacks. WR Diontae Johnson led the team with 9 targets, catching 5 for just 35 yards. TE Pat Freiermuth checked in 2nd with 7 targets and led the team with 57 receiving yards (on 4 catches). WR Chase Claypool posted a 4-45 receiving line on 6 targets. Rookie WR George Pickens managed 0 catches on 3 targets. The team's lone TD came on a 1-yard pass from Claypool to FB Derek Watt. The Week 9 bye will probably be good for this team.

WR Diontae Johnson drew a team-high 13 targets in QB Kenny Pickett's starting debut Sunday at Buffalo. Pittsburgh attempted a season-high 52 passes in the lopsided loss, but Johnson's looks marked a 25% share. He caught 5 for 60 yards. Chase Claypool followed with 9 targets, catching 5 for 50 yards. Rookie George Pickens led the team in receptions (6) and receiving yards (83) while ranking 3rd in targets (8). Pickens' rate of targets per route (16.7%) was actually down from the previous 2 games: 30.8% and 24.1%.

Steelers WR Diontae Johnson (hip) isn't listed on the final Week 5 injury report. He was limited in Thursday's practice but returned to a full workout on Friday. He should be ready for his usual role vs. the Bills this weekend.

Steelers WR Diontae Johnson was added to Thursday's injury report with a hip and limited in practice. That usually means the player was injured in practice. We'll see what Johnson is able to do on Friday and how he's listed on the final injury report for this weekend's game vs. the Bills.
