Steelers’ WR JuJu Smith-Schuster will undergo surgery after dislocating his shoulder on Sunday, and according to reports will miss the remainder of the 2021 season. According to ESPN, “Smith-Schuster had his shoulder reduced last night after a dislocation that can often result in a labral tear. He was examined and had an MRI last night, at which point the decision was made that he needed surgery.” Smith-Schuster suffered the injury in Sunday’s game against the Denver Broncos. He finishes the year with 15 receptions for 129 yards and no touchdowns.
The 24-year-old signed a one-year deal with Pittsburgh this offseason, after the Steelers drafted Smith-Schuster in the second-round of the 2017 NFL Draft. In his five-year NFL career, the former Trojan has accumulated 323 receptions, 3,855 yards, and 26 touchdowns.
