WR Smith-Schuster will not play for Steelers vs Bills

PITTSBURGH (AP) Despite some encouraging signs to the contrary earlier in the week, the depleted Pittsburgh Steelers offense won’t be getting its top wide receiver back for what is a crucial game this weekend.

JuJu Smith-Schuster will not play when the Steelers host the Buffalo Bills on Sunday night. The Steelers’ No. 1 wideout left Thursday’s practice early and did not participate in Friday’s session at all, ending hope he would avoid missing a fourth consecutive game because of a knee injury.

“I mean, it’s tough,” Smith-Schuster said Friday, shortly before it was announced via the release of the official injury report that he was out for Sunday’s game. “I’ve never been in this situation like this where I have been out for a long period of time. It’s something that’s definitely new to me, and I am learning myself and how I react to it. It could be frustrating sometimes, but at the same time it’s part of life, it’s part of the game, it’s what comes with this.”
