  Steelers | Diontae Johnson a full participant    Wed Oct 21, 03:49 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Diontae Johnson (back) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Oct. 21.

Footballguys view: Johnson will be back this week for the Steelers unless there is a setback during the practice week. They'll need him against the undefeated Titans on Sunday. With Johnson's return, James Washington is pushed down the pecking order into 'what the heck' flex territory. Johnson is a WR3/flex option if he plays.

  Steelers | No practice for JuJu Smith-Schuster    Wed Oct 21, 03:47 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 21.

Footballguys view: The team is getting Smith-Schuster some rest on Wednesday. Fantasy GMs have lost trust in the veteran receiver. He could be a flex play or WR2 with upside for Fantasy GMs against the Titans on Sunday.

  Steelers | Diontae Johnson healed up    Tue Oct 20, 12:39 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Diontae Johnson (back) will practice Wednesday, Oct. 21.

Footballguys view: Johnson should be back in action for the Steelers in the near future. Check his status on Friday to see if he's going to play in Week 7. Also, make sure to drop projections for James Washington if Johnson is cleared to play. It's a battle of the undefeated as the Steelers travel to take on the Titans this Sunday.

  Steelers | Devin Bush has torn ACL    Sun Oct 18, 06:44 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers LB Devin Bush (knee) suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament during the Week 6 game and will undergo season-ending surgery, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Bush was a key addition to this defense along with Minkah Fitzpatrick, but such is the marathon through a minefield that is the NFL season. There isn't an obvious replacement on the roster.

  Steelers | Mike Hilton out of game    Sun Oct 18, 03:36 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers CB Mike Hilton (shoulder) suffered a shoulder injury during the Week 6 game and is considered questionable to return.

Footballguys view: Hilton has been one of the stars in a loaded Steelers defense this year. He brings pressure from the slot and helps keep opposing quarterbacks uncomfortable. The Steelers will miss him if he can't go in the battle of undefeated teams at Tennessee next week.

  Steelers | Devin Bush out of game    Sun Oct 18, 02:26 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers LB Devin Bush (knee) suffered a knee injury during the Week 6 game and is considered questionable to return.

Footballguys view: It was a non-contact injury for the rising star, so we fear the worst here. The Steelers need all hands on deck for the matchup with Derrick Henry next week.

  Steelers | Deon Cain activated    Sat Oct 17, 06:45 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Deon Cain was promoted from the practice squad to the active roster Saturday, Oct. 17.

Footballguys view: Ah yes, Deon Cain. We have to admit having a soft spot for Cain in super deep dynasty formats. He's a former Clemson receiver with a nice size/speed combination...but he's done little in his pro career and bounced around to a couple of different teams. Fantasy GMs in super deep dynasty formats might still be holding out hope too.

  Steelers | Eric Ebron not on injury report    Fri Oct 16, 04:47 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Eric Ebron (hand) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 16, and is not on the injury report for Week 6.

Footballguys view: Ebron has a good matchup against the Browns linebackers and safeties this week and should be good to go.

  Steelers | Week 6 injury report for Pittsburgh    Fri Oct 16, 03:09 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers OG David DeCastro (abdominal) did not participate in practice all week and has been ruled out for Week 6 versus the Cleveland Browns. WR Diontae Johnson (back) did not practice Friday, Oct. 16, and has also been ruled out. QB Ben Roethlisberger (non-injury), WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (knee), LB Marcus D. Allen (foot), FB Derek Watt (hamstring), C Maurkice Pouncey (foot), TE Eric Ebron (hand), LB T.J. Watt (shoulder) and DE Stephon Tuitt (non-injury) practiced in full Friday and have been removed from the injury report.

Footballguys view: The loss of DeCastro will affect the quality of the Steelers running game, but James Conner still belongs in lineups.

  Steelers | Diontae Johnson to miss Week 6    Fri Oct 16, 02:50 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Diontae Johnson (back) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 16, and has been ruled out for Week 6 against the Cleveland Browns.

Footballguys view: Chase Claypool is a much safer play with Johnson out and James Washington also become a viable WR3/Flex. This should also make it easier for disgruntled Juju Smith-Schuster teams to plug him into lineups this week.

  Steelers | Diontae Johnson a limited participant    Thu Oct 15, 05:11 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Diontae Johnson (back) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 15.

Footballguys view: Johnson is trending to be back this week for the Steelers. He left the game in Week 5 and then rookie WR Chase Claypool had a monster, four-touchdown game. Even if Johnson plays, he's not 100 percent and the team would be foolish not to continue featuring Claypool. That makes Johnson more of a 'what the heck' flex play...if he plays...against the Browns on Sunday.

  Steelers | Diontae Johnson expected to practice soon    Tue Oct 13, 01:14 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Diontae Johnson (back) is expected to be limited in practice to begin the week, but his back injury should not keep him out of practice, according to comments made by head coach Mike Tomlin.

Footballguys view: Johnson only played six snaps in Week 5 before leaving with a back injury. He has a ton of talent but Johnson's 2020 season has been derailed by multiple injuries. Johnson will be limited but will have a chance to play in Week 6.

  Steelers | Back injury for Diontae Johnson    Sun Oct 11, 02:02 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Diontae Johnson (back) suffered a back injury during the Week 5 game and is considered questionable to return.

Footballguys view: Chase Claypool is having a big game in Johnson's place in a development that could flatten the target distribution in this talented wide receiver group. Johnson has been on the injury report all season and played through a hernia last year.
