JuJu Smith-Schuster on recovery from knee injury: 'I'll be ready'

Steelers second-year receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster has a knee injury that has prevented him from participating in any of the team’s practices this spring, but he fully expects to be ready to play when the team reports to training camp July 25.

“For sure, especially with this five-week break,” he said. “I’ll be ready.”

Smith-Schuster would not say if he had surgery to repair his knee, but he said the problem developed over time. It bothered him to the point this offseason that he had to take some time off.

“It’s just something that has been bothering me over time,” Smith-Schuster said.
