The last time the Steelers were on Sunday Night Football, wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster had a big night with seven catches for 193 yards and a touchdown in a 20-15 Pittsburgh win over the Lions.

The Steelers are going to be back on NBC against an NFC North squad this Sunday, but Smith-Schuster won’t have an encore against the Packers. According to multiple reports, Smith-Schuster has been ruled out for the game because of the hamstring injury he’s been dealing with all year.

Smith-Schuster’s absence will open up the door to more playing time for Martavis Bryant, who did not play against the Lions in Week Eight because he was serving a one-game suspension for violating team rules. He’s returned to catch five passes for 72 yards in two games since being reinstated.

Smith-Schuster had nine catches for 144 yards in those outings.

  1. Maybe now our long lost Packers fans will come back. Or not. Might be gone. Forever. Like Aaron.

  2. No points in our last game for my Packers. No JuJu this game. Maybe we can shut out the Steelers and get a tie. I guess I could be a jockey, too.

  3. Can’t wait to see what a healthy JuJu can do, if he’s been dealing with
    a hamstring injury all year.

    The guy has been ballin’ like a veteran, and not like an injured rook.
    It’s too bad he wont play against GB’s suspect secondary.

  4. Bryant will drop his usual two passes at big moments then blame the Steelers for setting him up to fail.
