  • Steelers' Diontae Johnson: Limited production in Week 4

    Johnson secured two of four targets for 11 yards while rushing twice for 11 yards during the Steelers' 24-20 loss to the Jets on Sunday. Johnson was held without a catch during the first half of Sunday's matchup, but he secured both of his targets in the second half after Kenny Pickett entered the game at quarterback. However, Johnson was held under 50 yards for the first time this season, and he had just four targets after tallying double-digit looks in each of the first four weeks of the season. The 26-year-old will face a tough test in Week 5 against Buffalo's stingy pass defense.

  • Steelers' Diontae Johnson: Paces pass catchers in loss

    Johnson secured eight of 11 targets for 84 yards and recovered a fumble in the Steelers' 29-17 loss to the Browns on Thursday night. Johnson comfortably paced the Steelers across the board in receptions, receiving yards and targets while also setting new season highs in each category. The third-year wideout has encouragingly maintained a hefty workload despite the change at quarterback for the Steelers, as Johnson now has 33 targets through three games. He'll look to build on Thursday's successful statistical effort in a Week 4 home matchup against the Jets a week from Sunday.

  • Steelers' Diontae Johnson: Draws 10 targets in Week 2

    Johnson hauled in six of 10 targets for 57 yards during Sunday's 17-14 loss to the Patriots. Johnson saw plenty of deep looks during Sunday's matchup, but he didn't have a catch longer than 17 yards and was unable to reach the end zone during the low-scoring game. The 2019 third-rounder averaged over 10 yards per reception in each of his first three professional seasons, but he's been held to just 8.2 yards per catch over his first two games catching passes from Mitch Trubisky. However, it's been encouraging to see Johnson's target share remain high early in the 2022 campaign.

  • Steelers' Diontae Johnson: Grinds out seven catches

    Johnson caught seven passes for 55 yards on 12 targets against Cincinnati on Sunday. Quarterback Mitch Trubisky had trouble generating offense, as he completed 21 of 38 passes for 194 yards and one touchdown. As inefficient as Johnson's box score might look at a glance, it's somewhat impressive that he was able to catch those seven passes with such mediocre quarterback play. It's difficult to imagine Trubisky starting all year if he continues to play like this, but whoever is at quarterback for Pittsburgh will frequently throw the ball in Johnson's direction.

  • Steelers' Diontae Johnson: Expects to play Sunday

    Johnson (shoulder) noted that he was able to practice fully Friday, Brooke Pryor of ESPN.com reports. The wideout also indicated that he'll be good to go Sunday against the Bengals while acknowledging that he may have to manage some pain in the process. Friday's final injury report will clarify whether Johnson heads into the weekend officially listed as questionable or minus a Week 1 injury designation.

  • Steelers' Diontae Johnson: Stays limited in practice

    Johnson (shoulder) remained a limited participant in practice Thursday, Brooke Pryor of ESPN.com reports. The Steelers' practice report also indicates that Johnson battled cramps Thursday, but his lingering shoulder injury -- which also limited his activity Wednesday -- is the prevailing concern as Sunday's season opener in Cincinnati approaches. For what it's worth, fellow wideout Chase Claypool told Pryor before Thursday's session that he expects Johnson to play Week 1. Meanwhile, offensive coordinator Matt Canada noted that he's also counting on Johnson being ready to go Sunday, though the Steelers will have a plan in place if the newly extended wideout is inactive for the contest or happens to be limited, per Alan Saunders of PittsburghSportsNow.com. One way or the other, the Steelers should have a better idea regarding Johnson's availability for the opener based on what he's able to do in the team's final practice of the week Friday.

  • Steelers' Diontae Johnson: Limited in practice

    Johnson (shoulder) was a limited practice participant Wednesday, Brooke Pryor of ESPN.com reports. Johnson didn't exactly sound confident talking to reporters after practice, saying he "tried to do everything my arm allowed me to do" and adding that he was doing "literally everything" in his power to be available for the season opener against Cincinnati on Sunday, per Joe Rutter of TribLive.com. The receiver injured his shoulder Aug. 28 in Pittsburgh's preseason finale, exactly two weeks before the first game that counts. If Johnson doesn't play this weekend, the Steelers will turn to Gunner Olszewski, Steven Sims or Miles Boykin as their third receiver behind Chase Claypool and George Pickens.

  • Steelers' Diontae Johnson: Expected to be ready Week 1

    Coach Mike Tomlin said Tuesday that he's optimistic Johnson (shoulder) will be available Week 1 against the Bengals, Dale Lolley of DKPittsburghSports.com reports. Johnson injured his shoulder while catching a deep ball in double coverage during the Steelers' final preseason game Sunday evening. He didn't return to the contest and now figures to miss some practice time, but Tomlin is backing the initial sentiment that both Johnson and T.J. Watt, who came away from that game with a knee issue, avoided serious injuries.

  • Steelers' Diontae Johnson: Injury likely isn't serious

    Coach Mike Tomlin said during a halftime interview on the CBS broadcast that the shoulder injury suffered by Johnson during Sunday's preseason contest versus the Lions shouldn't be a long-term issue, Field Yates of ESPN reports. Johnson got hurt in the process of hauling in a deep ball down the left sideline from Mitch Trubisky when two Detroit defenders took him to the ground. While Johnson was quickly ruled out of the contest, the decision appears to have been one made because it's exhibition season. Still, his status in practice will be one to watch in advance of Week 1, when the Steelers pay visit to the Bengals on Sunday, Sept. 11.

  • Steelers' Diontae Johnson: First preseason action

    Johnson recorded two receptions on four targets for 33 yards in Saturday's preseason win over the Jaguars. Johnson played throughout the first half, catching passes from Mitch Trubisky and Kenny Pickett. The fourth-year wide receiver found the end zone on an 11-yard pass from Pickett, but the touchdown was nullified by offsetting penalties. Regardless of who is under center for the Steelers in Week 1, Johnson will command a significant share of the targets.

  • Steelers' Diontae Johnson: Practicing again

    Johnson (hip) practiced Tuesday, Brooke Pryor of ESPN.com reports. With back-to-back practices under his belt, Johnson appears to have moved past the hip flexor that kept him out for about a week. He could even make an appearance in Saturday's preseason game at Jacksonville if the Steelers play their top guys.

  • Steelers' Diontae Johnson: Returns to practice Monday

    Johnson (hip) participated in Monday's practice, Joe Rutter of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports. Johnson dialed down his participation in practice over the last week due to a hip flexor injury, and he was kept off the field for Saturday's preseason opener against Seattle. It's not clear whether Johnson had any limitations Monday, but he said that he's been getting daily reps and going through a routine. He anticipates getting some snaps during Saturday's preseason matchup against the Jaguars. "I'm sure Coach T is going to play me a little this week or next week," Johnson said. "I'm going to be ready to get my feet wet and get ready for Sept. 11." In spite of his recent limitations, it seems like his lack of usage has mainly been a precautionary measure.

  • Steelers' Diontae Johnson: Absent from preseason win

    Johnson (hip) didn't play during the Steelers' 32-25 preseason win over the Seahawks on Saturday. Johnson and Chase Claypool (shoulder) warmed up in full uniform prior to Saturday's matchup, but both receivers were held out. Johnson landed a two-year extension with the Steelers in early August but has dealt with a hip flexor injury this week. It's not yet clear whether Johnson will take the field for the Steelers' final two preseason matchups, but he'll serve as the team's top receiving option if he's healthy to begin the regular season.

  • Steelers' Diontae Johnson: Managing hip issue

    Johnson (hip) was present for Thursday's practice, Brooke Pryor of ESPN.com reports. That said, Pryor notes that Johnson was sporting shoulder pads but no leg pads Thursday, which suggests that he's still working his way back from a hip flexor. In that context, Johnson appears unlikely to play in Saturday's preseason game against the Seahawks.

  • Steelers' Diontae Johnson: Gets two-year extension

    Johnson has agreed to a two-year extension with the Steelers that is reportedly worth up to $39.5 million, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN. Per the report, Johnson's new deal with Pittsburgh includes $27 million guaranteed. With that, the 2019 third-rounder, who racked up 107 catches (on 169 targets) for 1,161 yards and eight touchdowns in 16 games last season, presumably is set to resume practicing fully with his teammates in short order. This coming season, the 26-year-old will maintain his standing as the Steelers' top option in a wideout corps that also includes fellow returnee Chase Claypool as well as rookies George Pickens and Calvin Austin. While the team's Week 1 starting QB has yet to be named, regardless of who gets the assignment, Johnson figures to continue to see a steady flow of targets in 2022.

  • Steelers' Diontae Johnson: Not doing team drills

    Johnson was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, sitting out team drills as he enters the final year of his contract, Ray Fittipaldo of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. A report in early July suggested the Steelers weren't planning to extend Johnson, who may thus be hesitant to take part in full-team drills at training camp without a new deal in tow. Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said he doesn't think Johnson's limited activity is a big deal, and it's possible a new contract is around the corner despite the report from a few weeks ago.

  • Steelers' Diontae Johnson: Finds end zone in losing effort

    Johnson had five receptions on 10 targets for 34 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 42-21 loss to the Steelers. The 24-year-old finished first among all Pittsburgh receiving options in targets even with JuJu Smith-Schuster returning for Ben Roethlisberger's swan song. Johnson finished the regular season with team highs in receptions (107) and receiving yardage (1,161) while cashing in eight scores. He's established as the Steelers' No. 1 wideout, but the team's quarterback situation in 2022 will determine how much fantasy value Johnson will carry next season.

  • Steelers' Diontae Johnson: Ten targets despite early injury

    Johnson secured seven of 10 targets for 51 yards in Sunday's 16-13 overtime win over Baltimore. Johnson sustained a rib injury early in Sunday's contest, but he was able to play through the issue and led the Steelers in targets during the win. Although he had a crucial drop on third down late in overtime, the team still picked up the win to likely clinch a postseason berth. The 25-year-old led the Steelers' pass catchers while appearing in 16 of 17 games during the regular season and topped 1,000 receiving yards for the first time in his career. In total, he secured 107 of 169 targets for 1,161 yards and eight touchdowns while rushing five times for 53 yards.

  • Steelers' Diontae Johnson: Suits up Sunday

    Johnson is active for Sunday's game against the Ravens, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports. Johnson, who was activated off the reserve/COVID-19 list ahead of Week 18 action, is thus set to head the Steelers' wideout corps along with Chase Claypool and Ray-Ray McCloud. Meanwhile, James Washington is unavailable Sunday after landing on the reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday.

  • Steelers' Diontae Johnson: Comes off COVID list

    Johnson has been activated off the reserve/COVID-19 list by the Steelers. The Steelers placed Johnson on the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday, but he's quickly been activated by the team, which sets the stage for the wideout to suit up Sunday against the Ravens. In the process, Johnson should head a Week 18 wide receiver corps that also includes Chase Claypool, Ray-Ray McCloud and James Washington.
