Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster was diagnosed with a shoulder injury following a 27-19 win over the Denver Broncos last Sunday.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that Smith-Schuster is scheduled for surgery later this week. NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport confirmed that the 24-year-old would miss the remainder of the 2021 season.

Smith-Schuster took a hard hit from Broncos safety Kareem Jackson on his right shoulder in the second quarter. The Steelers medical team immediately assisted him off the field as he was visibly in a lot of pain.

Steelers receiver Diontae Johnson shared what he saw and thought during that game.

“It’s tough seeing him in that type of pain, and that’s for anybody on the field,” Johnson said Monday. “It’s tough seeing somebody get hurt that’s a key player to the offense. Just got to rally around him and just be there for him off the field.”

Smith-Schuster has played 63 games with Pittsburgh so far in his career, and the former Rose Bowl champion has recorded 323 receptions for 3,855 yards and 26 touchdowns.

The Pittsburgh Steelers return to Heinz Field to host the Seattle Seahawks this Sunday.
