Steelers Designate WR JuJu Smith-Schuster to Return from IR



JuJu Smith-Schuster

The Steelers have designated wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster to return from the injured reserve list, the team announced on Thursday.

That will allow Smith-Schuster to return to practice this week, though he remains on the injured reserve at this time. Smith-Schuster can practice with the team for up to 21 days while on injured reserve.

The Steelers placed Smith-Schuster on injured reserve on Oct. 16 after he suffered a serious shoulder injury on Oct. 10. He reportedly suffered a shoulder dislocation that could not be reset and required surgery.

He was expected to miss four months, which would leave Smith-Schuster out of action until the Super Bowl, but Thursday’s news suggests that he could be healing at an advanced rate.

In five games this season, Smith-Schuster caught 15 passes for 129 yards. He also had three rushes for nine yards and a touchdown.
