JuJu Smith-Schuster neither looked nor sounded like ... well, JuJu, following the Steelers' practice early Friday afternoon at the Rooney Complex.
One word undoubtedly explained that.
"Questionable," he said when asked his status for the suddenly seismic game Sunday against the Ravens at Heinz Field.
"Bare minimum," he added when asked how much he'd just practiced, this after being held out Wednesday and Thursday.
"Same toe," he confirmed when asked if this was due to the same toe he'd hurt in the opener in Foxborough.
The final official injury report for all NFL teams was released at 4 p.m., and Smith-Schuster's questionable status was confirmed. But that same report also listed him as a full participant. Which is ... unusual.
The full report:
James Conner (ankle) confirmed to me that he was a full participant in practice, this after being held out Wednesday and Thursday. Vance McDonald (shoulder), also held out Wednesday and Thursday, left the locker room after practice without commenting. Vince Williams (hamstring), a full participant all week, told me he's definitely returning after missing three games. Anthony Chickillo (foot) and Rosie Nix (knee) were again ruled out.
