  Steelers | Bruised ribs for JuJu Smith-Schuster    Mon Sep 27, 02:29 PM

Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (ribs) was diagnosed with bruised ribs and is considered day-to-day after imaging tests came back negative Monday, Sept. 27.

Footballguys view: This is good news for the Steelers. Rib injuries come down to pain tolerance, so expect Smith-Schuster to be limited in practice as he recovers from this injury. Smith-Schuster left Week 3 early and did not return due to the ribs issue.

  Steelers | Pittsburgh's Week 3 injury report    Fri Sep 24, 03:25 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Diontae Johnson (knee), LB Alex Highsmith (groin) and DT Carlos Davis (knee) did not practice all week and have been ruled out for Week 3 against the Cincinnati Bengals. LB T.J. Watt (groin) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable. QB Ben Roethlisberger (pectoral), CB Joe Haden (groin), CB Justin Layne (Achilles), TE Eric Ebron (coaches' decision) and LB Marcus D. Allen (abdomen) practiced in full Friday, Sept. 24, and no longer appear on the injury report. LB Devin Bush (groin) was not given a practice designation Friday but is also expected to play.

Footballguys view: James Washington will move into the starting lineup, but Juju Smith-Schuster is the biggest beneficiary of Johnson's absence. Watt is crucial to the defense, especially with Highsmith out, which will push Melvin Ingram into the starting lineup. Roethlisberger getting off of the injury report is a relief for an offense that is having trouble generating points.

  Steelers | Ben Roethlisberger dealing with pec injury    Tue Sep 21, 01:46 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (pectoral) has a left pectoral injury that will likely affect his practice reps leading up to the Week 3 against the Cincinnati Bengals, according to head coach Mike Tomlin.

Footballguys view: Well, that didn't take long. Roethlisberger is not the player he used to be, and getting banged up this early in the season is not a great sign. We'll see him limited or out on Wednesday. On Friday, Roethlisberger will have to be a full participant in practice for us to feel confident recommending him in Week 3.

Updating previous reports, Pittsburgh Steelers WR Diontae Johnson (knee) didn't suffer a long-term injury, according to a source. Johnson's status for next week is to be determined, though.

Footballguys view: Johnson has been targeted 22 times over the first two games of the 2021 season. He's clearly a favorite target of QB Ben Roethlisberger and can post WR2/flex numbers on a weekly basis.

  Steelers | Diontae Johnson helped off the field    Sun Sep 19, 05:44 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Diontae Johnson (lower body) suffered an apparent lower-body injury on the final play of the Week 2 game against the Las Vegas Raiders, and he was helped off the field by two members of the training staff.

Footballguys view: It really sucks to see Johnson go out on a meaningless play, as the Steelers were down nine and had no chance to win. James Washington would be the next man up, but Juju Smith-Schuster would be the main fantasy beneficiary of a long Johnson absence as the Steelers pass offense is limited to the horizontal dimension.

Pittsburgh Steelers LB T.J. Watt (groin) suffered a groin injury during the Week 2 game and is considered questionable to return.

Footballguys view: Watt is probably the most important player on the Steelers roster. The team was keeping him, Melvin Ingram and Alex Highsmith all fresh with a three-man rotation, but won't be able to employ that for the rest of the game. Watt hasn't been ruled out, but was seen on the sidelines without his helmet when the Raiders had the ball.
