JuJu Smith-Schuster didn’t practice for the second day in a row with his knee injury.  That paired with picking up a similar bodied WR in Cody White today leaves his ability to play on Sunday in doubt.

David DeCastro practiced fully for the second day in a row and it looks like he is on track to make his first start this Sunday.

The rest of the players that were given the day off yesterday returned to practice fully.  It is a very good sign for the Pittsburgh Steelers to have a healthy roster heading into their matchup against the Houston Texans.
