Steelers downgrade Claypool to out

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The Steelers will get wide receivers Diontae Johnson and JuJu Smith-Schuster back for their game Sunday against the Packers at Lambeau Field.

It's a good thing. They'll be without Chase Claypool in that game.

Claypool was downgraded on Saturday to out after suffering a hamstring injury in practice on Thursday. He did not practice on Friday.

Claypool is coming off a game in which he caught 9 passes for 98 yards in the team's 24-10 loss to the Bengals with Johnson out with an injured knee and Smith-Schuster exiting the game with a rib injury in the third quarter.
