Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster Injured During Wednesday’s Practice

Pittsburgh Steelers rookie wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster was reportedly injured during the team’s Wednesday training camp practice while participating in an 11-on-11 drill.

According to Alex Kozora, Smith-Schuster, the team’s second round draft pick this year out of USC, appeared to have gotten rolled-up on from behind during a running play. After laying on the ground for roughly five minutes, he got up and walked off the field under his own power.

After leaving the field, Kozora reports that Smith-Schuster was having his left leg looked at on the sideline. He eventually walked off to the locker room with team trainers after first talking to head coach Mike Tomlin, who reportedly told players, “He’ll be all right.”

Early in training camp, Smith-Schuster missed a brief amount of practice time with an ankle injury. Additionally, he left the team’s preseason opener against the New York Giants in the first quarter in order to be checked for a concussion and did not return.

    High ankle sprain, maybe back for preseason game 4. That’s my guess.

  • Ace

    Based on what info?

  • SteelersGeek4Lyfe

    It’s a good thing we don’t need him to contribute right away… this is when having a fleet of dangerous receivers comes in handy

  • Michael

    His concussion last week was due to head dive tackle, coaches should tell Ju-Ju to calm down, hold back a bit till regular season starts.

    Had Martavis not had drug issue, Twitterville beat writers hinted our second round pick might’ve been a CB instead of Ju-Ju? Agree?

  • Jeff McNeill

    Was there a good enough CB available then?

  • Getting rolled up on from behind is never good. Pouce lost a season with 7 ankle surgeries as a result of getting rolled up on. I hope JJSS is ok, but if he misses and extended amount of time, we are fortunate that WR is extremely deep at the moment.

    “that’s my guess”

    If you are wondering why I’m guessing that, “rolled-up on from behind”

  • Ed Smith

    I recall a TON of CBs went off board early to mid-2nd round. Don’t think so. Believe there’s been a ton of discussion on SD about this and IF a QUALITY CB was available then he’d been selected. Better value on JuJu than any CB available then.

    guess
    verb
    1.
    estimate or suppose (something) without sufficient information to be sure of being correct.

  • SeventhHeavan

    I hope JuJu doesn’t get stuck with that USC WR curse…

  • Steve Johnson

    And I agree! Better yet, I still think they should have tried to move up (if they didn’t try to) to select a better safety (replacement for Mitchell) or a better CB to replace Cockrell.

  • Michael Conrad

    I agree They were sitting and waiting to pick Josh Jones a safety in the second but GB took him the pick before the Steelers pick.

    GB likes Jones he is a safety and can play like a CB in coverage.

    lol. We are all experts in our own heads.

  • Ravens Team Gynecologist

    Another reason to dislike the Packers.

  • AndyR34

    Is it time to start the ‘fragile’ label yet? (sarcasm font)

  • Rocksolid20

    Wasn’t Swann a USC WR ?

  • Rocksolid20

    Makes Hunter and Coates look that much better .

  • SeventhHeavan

    He sure was. I am talking about the last 20 years or so. There has been some highly touted receivers coming out of USC and most, if not all have not lived up with the exception of Keyshwan Johnson.

    I try to stay away from doctor stuff. You want to know about dirty urines, i can comment

  • walter

    We have had a fleet of dangerous receivers for at least 2 years now but we always seem shorthanded
