Postgame update: Following the game, Johnson told the media he’s fine after the late injury and it’s, “just a bruise,” per Brooke Pryor.

The Pittsburgh Steelers are looking to hold off the Tennessee Titans in the fourth quarter of Week 7, but they’ll need to do it without one of their top playmakers. Wide receiver Diontae Johnson was shaken up on a reception and walked off the field with the trainers. Johnson had nine receptions for 80 yards and two touchdowns before the injury.

Johnson did not return before the end of the game, although there was limited opportunity for it. After he left the game, the Steelers ran five more offensive plays. Four were on that drive and one was a Roethlisberger kneeldown. We’ll likely need to wait until Monday for more details.
