Update: Diontae Johnson will not return due to his back injury. Rookie Chase Claypool has taken over his role in style, as he has three touchdowns on the day.

Update: Johnson will try to return, but is questionable.

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Diontae Johnson was injured after taking a big hit on a punt return. He is coming off a concussion the last time he played, so there is plenty of concern of another one so close to his last one.

The injury he has, could be anything at this moment, as trainers take a look at him on the sideline. We will keep you updated, as Chase Claypool gets work with Johnson out.
