Pretty much playing for playoff relevance in Week 12 against the winless Cincinnati Bengals, it looks like the 5-5 Pittsburgh Steelers will be without a major weapon.

According to Jeremy Fowler or ESPN, wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster is unlikely to play Sunday.

The Pro Bowler suffered a concussion in last Thursday’s loss to the Cleveland Browns. He is also said to be dealing with a minor knee injury.

This could be a major blow for Pittsburgh as it looks to knock off the worst team in the NFL.

Despite being in the midst of a down season, Smith-Schuster leads the Steelers in receptions (38), receiving yards (524) and touchdowns (3).

Fowler’s colleague over at ESPN, Adam Schefter, also indicates that it would be a surprise if starting running back James Conner was able to go in this game.

Conner suffered a shoulder injury in that brutal Week 11 loss to the Browns.
