Will the Pittsburgh Steelers get wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster back for their Sunday night home game against the Buffalo Bills.? It sounds like there’s a good chance of that happening, according to a Monday morning report,
According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, Smith-Schuster, who has missed the Steelers last three games with a knee injury, is eyeing a return on Sunday night against the Bills.

Smith-Schuster was listed this past week on the Steelers injury report as not practicing. However, he did tell the media earlier in the week that he had resumed straight-line running. The Steelers wide receiver is working through a knee injury suffered during the team’s Week 11 Thursday night game against the Cleveland Browns. He suffered a concussion on that same play but has long since cleared the protocol from that.
Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin should update Smith-Schuster’s condition on Tuesday when he holds his weekly press conference and hopefully he’ll say at that time that the plan is for the wide receiver to return to practice this coming week. The team’s first official injury report of Week 15 won’t be released until Wednesday afternoon, however.
Smith-Schuster has caught 38 passes for 524 yards and three touchdowns so far this season
