Steelers receiver Chase Claypool injured his shoulder in Friday’s practice.

Coach Mike Tomlin, via Brooke Pryor of ESPN, said the injury was being evaluated but is “probably not serious.” Tomlin added the team doesn’t have a “high level of concern.”

Claypool was holding his arm in pain before walking off with a trainer.

He had 59 receptions for 860 yards and two touchdowns last season after catching 62 passes for 873 yards and nine touchdowns as a rookie. With JuJu Smith-Schuster gone, Claypool should get more opportunities this season.

The Steelers practiced without defensive back Levi Wallace (illness) and tight end Pat Freiermuth (hamstring) on Friday.

  1. Is this how he has an excuse for not even coming close to being the top WR in the league this year?

    What was Harry’s excuse?

  3. He had some issues in Pittsburgh and is/was looking forward to seeing how he does in KC.

  4. Gonna be their slot guy, catch maybe 50 passes next 2 yrs, go sign a string of 1 yr “prove-it”deals, just like his media-mentor JuJu did. Unless he doesn’t learn to jump for passes that are 4 ft off the ground.
