The Pittsburgh Steelers have been excited about what rookie receiver Juju Smith-Schuster has done during training camp. Unfortunately the former USC star didn’t get to play much on Friday during the team’s first preseason game.

After rookie quarterback Josh Dobbs threw his first of two early interceptions, Smith-Schuster attempted to make the tackle but ended up getting injured instead.

Before leading the game, Smith-Schuster had catch for four yards and one run for nine yards.

Last season at USC, Smith-Schuster was very productive for USC, catching 70 passes for 914 yards and 10 touchdowns. He was drafted in the second round this past April.
