JuJu Smith-Schuster, James Conner, Vance McDonald, Cameron Heyward miss Steelers practice
JuJu Smith-Schuster was a surprise addition to the Pittsburgh Steelers’ injury report Wednesday when he sat out practice because of a toe injury. The wide receiver had injured a toe during the opener at New England last month, but he played in the Week 2 loss to Seattle.
There was no immediate indication if this toe ailment was related to the one from last month.

Running back James Conner (ankle) and defensive end Cameron Heyward (quadricep) also did not practice two days after suffering injuries during Monday night’s win against Cincinnati. Both returned to that game.
Tight end Vance McDonald (shoulder) and special-teamer Anthony Chickillo (foot) and Roosevelt Nix (knee) all sat out practice Wednesday. All three missed Monday’s game; Nix has not played since Week 1. Coach Mike Tomlin said all three have a chance to play during this coming Sunday’s game against the Baltimore Ravens.
