According to NFL reporter Ian Rapoport, the rib injury suffered by Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster isn’t considered serious. Tests showed nothing broken, and according to Rapoport, Smith-Schuster is considered day to day.
This injury is a tough one for a receiver like Smith-Schuster whose entire game is centered around his physicality. His ability to participate this week will be a situation to monitor very closely. If Smith-Schuster cannot go, it really puts Diontae Johnson in the spotlight after he missed Sunday’s game with a knee injury.
The Steelers go on the road this week to take on the 2-1 Green Bay Packers.
#Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster, who left Sunday’s game with a rib injury, was diagnosed with bruised ribs, sources say. He’s considered day-to-day after undergoing all tests and receiving negative results (negative is good).
