Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin told reporters Saturday wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster will miss a “number of days” due to an ankle injury, according to the Tribune-Review‘s Joe Rutter

On Friday, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette‘s Ray Fittipaldo reported Smith-Schuster suffered the injury on the third play of practice. However, he returned to the field following a brief absence to get his ankle taped.

The injury, while apparently not major, is another setback for a receiving corps that has dealt with its fair share of issues.

Not only is Martavis Bryant yet to be fully reinstated, but Sammie Coates hasn’t participated in training camp as he recovers from a knee scope. 

A rookie out of USC, Smith-Schuster should compete for slot snaps once healthy after he recorded 3,092 receiving yards and 25 touchdowns in three years with the Trojans.
