A report on Monday indicated that Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster is eyeing this Sunday’s game against the Bills as the time to return to game action after missing the last three contests with a knee injury.

Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin isn’t ready to specuate about the chances that Smith-Schuster plays, but he does expect the wideout to take a step forward in his recovery. Smith-Schuster is expected to practice with the team this week.

Tomlin also expects running back James Conner to practice. Conner has missed the last three games with a shoulder injury and was a limited participant in practice last week despite being ruled out last Thursday.

It’s not known how much either player will participate and Tomlin said, via the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, the team will “look at the quality of that work” before determining whether the two players make their return for a big game in the AFC playoff race.

    If only they’d found Cain and Whyte before wasting a roster spot on Moncrief for 1/3 of the year.

  5. If the injury prone, oft-injured James Conner does play please don’t get hurt . Again. And don’t fumble. Again. Same exact message for the other fumbler

  6. So the “Coach of the Year” who watched JuJu Smith-Fumble singlehandedly destroy the Steelers’ season last year is putting him back in the game so he can do it again?

    That’s some brilliant coaching.

  7. That’s some brilliant coaching.

    I am sure you wouldn’t know brilliant coaching if it was peeing on your leg. You jealousy of the Steelers is evident by your constant posting silly schoolboy taunts popular with the trolls. Time to go wipe the bird droppings off Rays statue……isn’t it?

  8. How’s Tomlin’s foot? Is it healthy enough to be out on the field this Sunday tripping up kick returners? Just asking.
