PITTSBURGH, PA – Pittsburgh Steelers‘ second-year wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster is coming off of a phenomenal rookie season. However, entering this year’s minicamp, he’s dealing with a “frustrating” knee injury.

Smith-Schuster has been very vague on the extent of his injury but says he plans to be a full participant for training camp which starts July 26, 2018. “Just something that’s been bothering me over time,” said Smith-Schuster of the injury. “Kind of just adds up and lets me know, ‘Yo, I need to get it checked out.’ We got it checked out.” Until training camp, the Steelers have decided to rest Smith-Schuster during OTA’s and minicamp.

[When asked what “checked out” means, Smith-Schuster said to “ask coach Mike Tomlin.” Smith-Schuster did not say whether or not the injury required surgery. JuJu also confirmed that he plans to return kicks again in 2018 after returning a kickoff for a score during Pittsburgh’s Week 17 victory over the Browns last season.] – Bryan Deardo, 247 Sports

As for “replacing” Martavis Bryant, “I want it. I love it. This is why I’m here,” said Smith-Schuster. “I love the game. Whatever they put on my shoulders, I’m going to carry it and do what I can do for this team.”

    Hello my name is Phillip Lopez, I’m from Sacramento, California, I’ve been a fan of the Pittsburgh Steelers since 1972, today I found out that Donnie Shell one of my favorite players is not in the Hall of Fame, Dungy who wasn’t as famous as Shell is in, not that he doesn’t deserve to be in, but a question was asked about the greatest Steelers,in the HOF, I got all of them except Shell,for Staudner whoever he was, but this is truly unfair, bullshit, I would like to know why Shell is not in the HOF, and as Steelers fans we should do something about it,
