Steelers Issue Surprising JuJu Smith-Schuster Health Update
The Steelers issued a surprising JuJu Smith-Schuster health update this week.
Smith-Schuster, 23, is one of the most prolific wide receivers in the league when he actually plays.
Unfortunately, the Pittsburgh wide receiver has missed several games recovering from a concussion and knee injury.
Initially it looked like Smith-Schuster may suit up against the Buffalo Bills last week after he passed concussion protocol, but a setback with the knee kept him out.
As a result of the late scratch last weekend, many wondered if Smith-Schuster would be available for this weekend’s outing against the New York Jets.
According to the Steelers – all signs currently point to yes.
JuJu Smith-Schuster (knee) and Vance McDonald (concussion) were FULL today.
Joe Haden (foot), who is new to the injury report, did not practice along with Nick Vannett (illness).

Smith-Schuster reportedly went through a full practice on Thursday and is looking good heading into the coming weekend.
The Steelers could really use the offensive boost that Smith-Schuster will inevitably provide.
Pittsburgh needs a victory in order to stay alive in the playoff chase. The team currently resides in the second Wild Card spot, but the Tennessee Titans are right there.
If both the Steelers and Titans emerge victorious this weekend, it will all be decided in the final week of the season when Tennessee takes on the Houston Texans.
