The Pittsburgh Steelers would probably want to remain at full strength at wide receiver while they work to permanently resolve their quarterback situation.

That could be more difficult if standout wide receiver Diontae Johnson isn't available.

Johnson was limited at practise on Thursday due to a shoulder issue and cramping.

Johnson was limited for the second day in a row, although the cramps were relatively fresh.

Johnson had a breakout season in 2021, earning Pro Bowl honours after catching 107 passes for 1,161 yards and eight touchdowns.

With JuJu Smith-Schuster out, he is now the team's top receiver going forward.

In his absence, the Steelers will have to rely on Chase Claypool as their primary target.

Diontae Johnson was drafted in the third round of the 2019 NFL Draft and was the Steelers' primary punt returner as a rookie.

He was named Second-Team All-Pro as a punt returner that season after catching 59 passes for 680 yards and five touchdowns.
