The Steelers rookie receiver from Notre Dame has gotten off to a hot start with a rushing and receiving touchdown. Claypool has seen his snaps get a boost with Diontae Johnson on the sideline with a back injury. That helped him to a two-yard rushing touchdown and then a nice catch and run for a 32 yard touchdown.
Midway through the second quarter, Claypool has three receptions for 54 yards and a touchdown, plus two rushing attempts for five yards and another touchdown. Johnson hasn’t been ruled out, but Claypool should still get work even if Johnson returns.
