Report: JuJu Smith-Schuster (shoulder) feared lost for season

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster is expected to land on injured reserve and could miss the rest of the season with a shoulder injury, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported Monday.

Smith-Schuster was taken to the hospital for evaluation after Sunday’s win against the visiting Denver Broncos.

On the first play of a Pittsburgh drive in the second quarter, Smith-Schuster rushed around the left end for 3 yards before being tackled by Broncos safety Kareem Jackson.

Jackson’s helmet struck Smith-Schuster’s right arm and the fifth-year wideout appeared to be in serious pain as he was helped to the locker room.

Smith-Schuster, 24, finished with two carries for 6 yards and zero catches on one target. For the season, he has 15 receptions for 129 yards and no touchdowns in five games.

A second-round pick in 2017 and a Pro Bowl selection in 2018, Smith-Schuster has 323 career catches for 3,855 yards and 26 touchdowns in 63 games.
