Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Diontae Johnson is out for their Week 6 game against the Browns, per Ray Fittipaldo of the Pittsburgh Gazette. Johnson was forced from last week’s game with a back injury but was able to get limited practices in this week.

With Johnson out, JuJu Smith-Schuster and Chase Claypool, who went off for four touchdowns last week, will be the main wide receiver targets for Ben Roethlisberger, with Eric Ebron also seeing a likely strong workload in a good matchup.
