Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster in concussion protocol

The Pittsburgh Steelers are dealing with all kinds of drama at the wide receiver position currently, specifically surrounding young wideout Martavis Bryant.

While there’s been plenty of back-and-forth about whether or not Bryant does or does not want a trade (although it seems he does), the Steelers are reportedly unlikely to trade him. Now, we can tack a bit more wide receiver trouble on for the Steelers, though as well.

As’s Kevin Patra reported, rookie JuJu Smith-Schuster is in the concussion protocol, according to head coach Mike Tomlin.

Smith-Schuster has had an impressive start to his NFL career through seven games. After game going target-less in Week 1, he caught three passes and a touchdown in his second-career NFL game. To this point in the season, he’s hauled in 17-of-27 passes for 231 yards and three touchdowns.

The former USC playmaker has proven to be a great option for Ben Roethlisberger and a player who can stretch the field for the Steelers.
