JuJu Smith-Schuster Leaves Game after Stepping on Penalty Flag



Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster left his team’s game on Sunday with an undisclosed lower-body injury after appearing to slip on a penalty flag in the fourth quarter with Pittsburgh leading Jacksonville.

Smith-Schuster had been banged up earlier in the game, but returned to the game, only to leave once again after bizarrely slipping on a penalty flag.

The game was largely out of hand when Smith-Schuster was injured, with Pittsburgh leading 20-3 in the fourth quarter. He was replaced in the Steelers’ top receiver group by Ray-Ray McCloud.

Smith-Schuster had four catches for 19 yards before he left the game, which was played on his 24th birthday.
