Post-game update: After the game, Mike Tomlin said Smith-Schuster’s injury was minor, but it could be a factor in a short week, according to Brooke Pryor. The Steelers face the Ravens on Thanksgiving.

Evan Washburn on the sideline reports it’s a toe injury for JuJu Smith-Schuster, and he would be available to go back in if necessary — but his awkward limp on the sideline says otherwise.

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster stepped on the weighted portion of the penalty flag in the fourth quarter and jumped up and hobbled to the sideline in the fourth quarter. The Steelers lead 20-3 with nine minutes left in the game.
