Steelers’ wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Ravens. The Steelers are hoping he will be able to play in the important AFC North showdown.
Pittsburgh’s star receiver injured his toe early in the game Monday night, the same toe that was hurt in Week 1 against New England. Although JuJu was doing the bare minimum in Friday’s practice, offensive coordinator Randy Fichtner predicts that he will be ready to go on Sunday.
Smith-Schuster caught a career low 15 receiving yards with his hurt toe against the Bengals. Even if he is not 100%, his presence on the field is enough to put pressure on the struggling Baltimore defense in an important divisional game.
Running back James Conner injured his ankle against the Bengals as well, but participated in Friday’s practice and should be ready to go by Sunday.
