Smith-Schuster Believes Ailing Knee Will Be Ready For Start Of Training Camp

After allegedly missing all of the team’s 2018 OTA practices due to an undisclosed injury, Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster was back practicing in some capacity on Tuesday during the first day of mandatory minicamp. Even so, the team’s second-round draft pick last year out of USC is apparently not yet fully healthy, according to comments he made to the media on Wednesday. He does, however, believe he’ll be a full-go late next month when training camp gets underway in Latrobe.

“For sure, especially with this five-week break,” Smith-Schuster said Wednesday afternoon, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
