If the Pittsburgh Steelers are going to upset the reigning AFC Champions this Sunday, they’ll need to be at full strength. That may actually come to fruition.
Believe it or not, star wideout JuJu Smith-Schuster returned to practice on Thursday. He’s been on the injured reserve with a shoulder injury since Oct. 16.
However, Smith-Schuster is still listed on the injured reserve list. So it’s still unclear whether or not he’ll be good to go on Sunday.
Regardless, this is encouraging news for a Steelers fan base not exactly excited about Sunday’s game.
“Receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster returned to practice on Thursday after being placed on the Reserve/Injured List on Oct. 16 with a shoulder injury,” the team announced.
“Smith-Schuster still remains on the Reserve/Injured List and the team has a 21-day window to activate him to the 53-man roster, or he remains on the Reserve/Injured List.”
WR JuJu Smith-Schuster will practice today but remains on the Reserve/Injured List.

If JuJu Smith-Schuster is back in the mix for Sunday’s AFC battle against the Chiefs then things could get interesting.
At the very least, he’s going to present several challenges for the Kansas City defense.
“This Is A Great Look … Don’t Have Us Winning But Juju Being Back Can Definitely Help In A lot Of Ways,” a fan said.
