The Pittsburgh Steelers are having a tough time against the Cleveland Browns on Thursday night and especially in the injury department.
After losing outside linebacker Olasunkanmi Adeniyi early in the game to a possible concussion, cornerback Artie Burns, running back James Conner and wifde receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster have since suffered injuries.
Burns left with a knee injury while covering a punt and he’s questionable to return. Conner left the game to get his shoulder evaluated and Smith-Schuster left the field to get checked for a concussion. all three players went to the locker room.
Conner missed the last two games with a shoulder injury and clearly wasn’t fully over it entering the Thursday night game.
Smith-Schuster has now been ruled out for the rest of the game.
Steelers wide receiver Diontae Johnson also was injured in the second half and he will not return after suffering a concussion courtesy of a dirty helmet-to-helmet hit by Browns safety Damarious Randall.
