The Pittsburgh Steelers suffered a number of injuries in their 27-16 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders on Sunday, including one to a star wide receiver on the last play of the game.
Steelers wideout Diontae Johnson suffered an apparent right knee injury after catching a pass in the final seconds, and required the assistance of two people as he exited the field, according to ESPN’s Field Yates.

Johnson had been shaken up earlier in the game, but was able to return just a few plays later. He also temporarily left last week’s season-opening win against the Buffalo Bills with a right knee issue.
Johnson led the Steelers with nine receptions for 105 yards in Sunday’s loss.
