Steelers WR Diontae Johnson Limited in Practice on Thursday

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Diontae Johnson (shoulder) was limited in team practice on Thursday, per ESPN’s Brooke Pryor.

Johnson feels like a true questionable for Week 1 as he continues to battle his shoulder ailment. The 2021 Pro Bowler has been limited for two consecutive days at practice now. Fellow receiver Chase Claypool told reporters on Thursday that he anticipates that Johnson will play on Sunday, but nothing has been made final by head coach Mike Tomlin. The Steelers will look to get off on the right foot on Sunday as hefty underdogs against the Cincinnati Bengals.

In 2021, Johnson hauled in 107 receptions on 169 targets for 1,161 yards and eight touchdowns. Keep an eye out for his practice designation on Friday as a clearer indication of his status for the weekend.
