Steelers: five burning questions for week five against the Ravens
Will Juju play this week?
The Steelers came out with their Friday injury report, and it had some good news. Vance McDonald, Vince Williams, and Juju Smith-Schuster all practiced fully. Those three are now all listed as questionable.
Juju Smith-Schuster has a toe injury, and that could keep him out of Sunday’s game. He is critical to their offense as they have had to rely on production from young receivers like Diontae Johnson and James Washington.
If Diontae Johnson and James Washington are the Steelers top two receivers on Sunday, then this could be bad from the Steelers. Those receivers have been inconsistent and have been able to get production from Juju Smith-Schuster being double covered. It will free up the Ravens secondary if Juju is unable to play.
My guess is that Juju Smith-Schuster goes on Sunday as he practiced fully on Friday. I would imagine the Steelers are extra careful with Juju as he is their top receiving threat.
