UPDATE: Diontae Johnson is OUT for Week 3 with a concussion, per Steelers PR. The ball has been spread around since Johnson left, so it looks like no one player will see a big bump, but all should see a slight bump in targets.

Steelers wide receiver Diontae Johnson is being evaluated for a concussion after getting hit hard on a reverse. The Steelers trail the Houston Texans 14-10 late in the second quarter. Johnson has been the Steelers No. 1 receiver so far this season and his loss would be a big one for the offense. JuJu Smith-Schuster and Eric Ebron would likely see the biggest bump in work.
