    Steelers' JuJu Smith-Schuster: Makes two catches in loss to Ravens

    JuJu Smith-Schuster caught two of six targets for six yards during Sunday's 28-10 loss to the Ravens.Although Smith-Schuster finished second on the team in targets, he struggled to produce as Devlin Hodges turned in a putrid performance against the tough Baltimore defense. Smith-Schuster recorded one gain of 11 yards and lost five yards via a screen play on his other grab. This poor performance ends an extremely disappointing season for Smith-Schuster, who finishes with less than half his receiving yardage total from a year ago. Of course, injuries and poor quarterback play were huge factors in his 41-552-3 stat line, and he'll look to get back on track during the 2020 campaign.

    Steelers' JuJu Smith-Schuster: Clearly not 100 percent

    JuJu Smith-Schuster (knee) caught two of four targets for 22 yards in Sunday's 16-10 loss to the Jets.Clearly gutting it out at much less than 100 percent, Smith-Schuster failed to make much of an impact in his first action since Week 11. The banged-up wide receiver will likely be out there when the Pittsburgh Steelers try to clinch a playoff berth against the Ravens in Week 17, but his impact will probably be limited.

    Steelers' JuJu Smith-Schuster: Cleared for Week 16

    JuJu Smith-Schuster (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Jets, Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.Smith-Schuster didn't carry an injury designation into the weekend after practicing fully Thursday and Friday, but his status was still somewhat unsettled leading up to kickoff after Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com relayed earlier Sunday that the team was monitoring the wideout's ability to tolerate pain in his knee during a pregame workout before determining his fate. Evidently, Smith-Schuster's knee wasn't too bothersome, but it wouldn't be surprising if the Pittsburgh Steelers used him cautiously as he returns from a four-game absence. If Smith-Schuster's snap count ends up being limited Sunday, more reps and targets would open up for Diontae Johnson and James Washington.

    Steelers' JuJu Smith-Schuster: Week 16 status still unsettled

    JuJu Smith-Schuster (knee) doesn't carry an injury designation into Sunday's contest against the Jets, but the team is viewing the receiver as a game-day decision in advance of the 1 p.m. ET kickoff, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports.Though Smith-Schuster has received medical clearance to play through the knee issue, the Pittsburgh Steelers apparently aren't entirely convinced that he'll be able to play through the lingering pain he's continued to experience. The Steelers will put Smith-Schuster through a workout Sunday morning, after which the team should have a better idea regarding what kind of workload -- if any -- the wideout is capable of handling. With the Steelers clinging to the AFC's final wild-card spot entering Sunday's action, it would certainly behoove the 8-6 squad to have Smith-Schuster available in some capacity, though his shaky health might make it difficult to justify rolling with him in fantasy lineups.

    Steelers' JuJu Smith-Schuster: Heads into weekend minus injury designation

    JuJu Smith-Schuster (knee) -- who practiced fully Thursday and Friday -- doesn't carry an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Jets.While that non-listing presumably puts the wideout on track to play this weekend, Smith-Schuster admits that he isn't completely past his knee issue at this stage. "I don't feel 100 percent but I am going to see what I can do," Smith-Schuster acknowledged Friday. "It depends on what (coach Mike Tomlin) says. It's coming along. It's a process. The knee is kind of tricky. You don't really know you are full go until you run your full speed, when you are getting hit, getting tackled. Hopefully I am able to go this week and play." Given Smith-Schuster's words, it still will be worth confirming his playing status in advance of Sunday's 1:00 p.m. ET kickoff, just to be safe. Moreover, assuming he does suit up this weekend for his first game action since Nov. 14, it's plausible that he could be eased back into the mix.

    Steelers' JuJu Smith-Schuster: Knee still an issue

    Though JuJu Smith-Schuster practiced fully Friday, he acknowledged that his knee isn't 100 percent and isn't sure if he'll play Sunday against the Jets, Brooke Pryor of ESPN.com reports.We'll circle back on Smith-Schuster's status later Friday, but despite his full practice participation, it looks like he could well be listed as questionable on the Pittsburgh Steelers' final Week 16 injury report in advance of Sunday's 1:00 p.m. ET kickoff.

    Steelers' JuJu Smith-Schuster: Returns to full practice

    JuJu Smith-Schuster (knee) practiced fully Thursday, Ray Fittipaldo of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.That's a big step forward for the wideout, who was limited Wednesday and a nice change from last Thursday, when Smith-Schuster left practice early and ended up not playing in Week 15. Though Smith-Schuster is clearly trending in the right direction, offensive coordinator Randy Fichtner fell short of declaring Pittsburgh's top pass catcher good to go at this stage, indicating Thursday that he was "hopeful" about getting Smith-Schuster back for Sunday's game against the Jets. Friday's final Week 16 injury report will reveal whether or not Smith-Schuster heads into the weekend listed as questionable, or free of an injury designation.

    Steelers' JuJu Smith-Schuster: Limited at practice

    JuJu Smith-Schuster (knee) was limited at practice Wednesday, Missi Matthews of the Pittsburgh Steelers' official site reports.Smith-Schuster -- who aggravated his knee injury at practice last Thursday -- subsequently sat out both Friday's practice and the Steelers' Week 15 loss to the Bills. Per Brooke Pryor of ESPN.com, coach Mike Tomlin suggested that the team plans monitor how Smith-Schuster's knee responds to practice work in the coming days before the wideout's status for Sunday's game against the Jets is determined.

    Steelers' JuJu Smith-Schuster: Status murky for Week 16

    Coach Mike Tomlin indicated Tuesday that he currently views JuJu Smith-Schuster (knee) as questionable for this weekend's game against the Jets, Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.Though Smith-Schuster hasn't played since Week 11 due to a concussion (which he's since recovered from) and a left knee injury, Tomlin's comments suggest that the wideout is viewed as day-to-day rather than week-to-week. Ultimately, a decision on Smith-Schuster's status for Sunday's game will come down to what he's able to do in the Pittsburgh Steelers' practices Wednesday through Friday. Smith-Schuster began Week 15 prep as a full participant in practice, but the Steelers chose to scale back his workload the following two days after his knee didn't respond to the activity as hoped.

    Steelers' JuJu Smith-Schuster: Officially out for Week 15

    The Pittsburgh Steelers have ruled JuJu Smith-Schuster (knee) out for Sunday's game against the Bills, Brooke Pryor of ESPN.com reports.Pittsburgh's decision to hold Smith-Schuster out for a fourth consecutive game was fully expected after the receiver aggravated his left knee injury during Thursday's practice. According to Pryor, Smith-Schuster noted Friday that he isn't putting a timeline on his return after his latest setback, leaving his availability for the Steelers' final two regular-season contests in peril as well. Young receivers Diontae Johnson and James Washington will remain pressed into expanded roles so long as Smith-Schuster is sidelined.
