Steelers Injury Update: What We Know About JuJu Smith-Schuster's Shoulder

The Pittsburgh Steelers receiver is expected to have surgery later this week.

PITTSBURGH -- Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster will reportedly miss the remainder of the season after leaving Week 5 with a shoulder injury. 

Smith-Schuster, 24, was transported to the hospital diagnosed with a dislocated shoulder. The injury typically results in a labral tear and he will undergo surgery, forcing him to miss the next four months, according to reports.

Smith-Schuster signed a one-year, $8 million deal with the Steelers this off-season in hopes of landing a bigger deal next offseason. In five games, he finishes his season with 15 catches for 129 yards and a touchdown. 

The Steelers will hope James Washington returns from a groin injury in Week 6. Ray-Ray McCloud and Cody White could also see extended roles behind Chase Claypool and Diontae Johnson in Smith-Schuster's absence.
