Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster is out for the season after undergoing shoulder surgery, according to the NFL Network.
The successful procedure was performed Sunday night, per the report, just hours after he was transported to the hospital for evaluation following a 27-19 win against the visiting Denver Broncos.
On the first play of a Pittsburgh drive in the second quarter, Smith-Schuster rushed around the left end for 3 yards before being tackled by Broncos safety Kareem Jackson.
Jackson’s helmet struck Smith-Schuster’s right arm and the fifth-year wideout appeared to be in serious pain as he was helped to the locker room.
Smith-Schuster, 24, finished with two carries for 6 yards and zero catches on one target. For the season, he has 15 receptions for 129 yards and no touchdowns in five games.
A second-round pick in 2017 and a Pro Bowl selection in 2018, Smith-Schuster has 323 career catches for 3,855 yards and 26 touchdowns in 63 games.
