More details have emerged about Pittsburgh Steelers receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster's injury.

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

Smith-Schuster left in the first half against the Denver Broncos after a collision with Kareem Jackson. The Steelers receiver was in noticeable pain leaving the field and was ruled out shortly after. 

The injury had been reported as a shoulder dislocation.

Head coach Mike Tomlin announced after the game that Smith-Schuster was taken to the hospital. According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, the 24-year-old will undergo surgery on the injured shoulder. 

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.
