Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster tweaked his ankle stepping on a penalty flag

·2-min read

Pittsburgh cruised against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday, but it wasn’t smooth sailing for every Steeler.

Wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster suffered one of the weirder injuries of the season (or of any season) while he was walking off the field in the second half. A penalty flag floated to the ground directly in his footpath and he stepped right on it. He didn’t see it and wasn’t expecting it, and he hopped up and began limping right away.

You see all sorts of injuries in the NFL, but that’s definitely a strange one.

Smith-Schuster wasn’t seriously injured, coach Mike Tomlin said afterward, but he was limited for the rest of the game. The Steelers do play on Thursday in Week 12, so Smith-Schuster’s injury will be worth monitoring.

A tweak is better than anything more severe, but it’s still going to be an issue. The Steelers play the Baltimore Ravens on Thursday so it’s going to be a short practice week. They are 10-0 and Smith-Schuster is big part of why. He’s one of the top receivers on the team, and they’ll need him Thursday.
