Steelers receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster returns to practice
PITTSBURGH — Steelers receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster, who injured his shoulder during a Week 5 game against the Broncos, returned to practice Thursday.
Smith-Schuster was placed on injured reserve after having shoulder surgery. The Steelers have a 21-day window to evaluate Smith-Schuster and decide if he will be activated from IR. He can be activated during any point in that window.
Smith-Schuster had 15 receptions for 129 yards before he was injured after absorbing a hard hit by Broncos cornerback Kareem Jackson after Smith-Schuster took a handoff from Ben Roethlisberger.
Smith-Schuster, who has 3,855 yards and 26 touchdowns since entering the league as a second-round pick in the 2017 draft, can become an unrestricted free agent in March.
