Source: JuJu Smith-Schuster’s knee injury is not serious for the long term but he’s not expected to play Sunday against the Bengals. Too much to overcome with knee and concussion protocol.— Jeremy Fowler (@JFowlerESPN) November 20, 2019
With James Conner’s status also up in the air for Sunday, the Steelers might be mightily under manned vs the Bengals. I would expect a larger workload for James Washington with Smith-Shuster out, who has already flashed the chemistry he had with Mason Rudolph in college on the football field. Against the Bengals terrible secondary, he could be in for a nice week.
