Pittsburgh Steelers rookie breakout JuJu Smith-Schuster will not play Sunday against the Green Bay Packers, the team announced. Smith-Schuster has been dealing with a hamstring injury all week and has not practiced.
The wide receiver Ben Roethlisberger Youth Jersey is Pittsburgh's third-most targeted option behind All-Pro stalwarts Antonio Brown and Le'Veon Bell. Smith-Schuster overtook the No. 2 role opposite of Brown midway through this season and has since flashed potential as a strong, fast pass-catcher and a bona fide celebrator.
JuJu leads all rookie wideouts with 568 receiving yards and five touchdowns.
Expect Martavis Bryant to slide into JuJu's role on the outside against a suspect Packers secondary.Atlanta Falcons coach Dan Quinn said Friday the running back was ruled out for Sunday's game versus the Bud Dupree Youth Jersey Tampa Bay Buccaneers with a concussion suffered in Week 10 versus the Dallas Cowboys.
Freeman was limited in practice, wearing a non-contact jersey, per ESPN's Vaughn McClure.
Atlanta will Cameron Heyward Youth Jersey ride Tevin Coleman against the Bucs. The speedy back earned 21 touches for 58 scrimmage yards in Monday's win over the Seahawks with Freeman out of the lineup. Coleman gets a much better matchup against Tampa on Sunday.
Terron Ward will split the backfield duties when Coleman takes a breather. he Jacksonville Jaguars might be without their star cornerback on Sunday.
Second-year corner Jalen Ramsey injured his hand in practice Friday and told ESPN's Michael DiRocco that he will not play against the Arizona Cardinals. Ramsey was officially listed as limited in practice and questionable to play.
Ramsey is having an All-Pro worthy season across from A.J. Bouye in Jacksonville's secondary. Ramsey and Bouye are tied for fourth in the league in passes defensed (16) and are the faces of the nation's best pass defense (162.0 YPG). Ramsey allows a 47.2 passer rating and 48.1 catch rate when targeted, per Pro Football Focus, both top-10 marks.
Losing Ramsey Carnell Lake Youth Jersey this week would be especially unfortunate -- for the Jaguars and fans of the sport -- given that he was set to go head-to-head with Cardinals future Hall of Famer Larry Fitzgerald. If you need to an avatar to encapsulate the Dallas Cowboys' offensive woes this season, look no further than Big D's franchise wide receiver, Dez Bryant.
Once one of the top receivers in the league, Bryant has yet to eclipse 100 yards in a game this season and is averaging a career-low 10.9 yards per catch. On Thursday, Dez wasn't even targeted in the first half -- he finished with three catches on five targets for 37 yards in the blowout loss to the Los Angeles Chargers.
His stats and game tape tell the story of a wideout in decline -- Bryant, 29, is in his eighth season -- but Cowboys owner Jerry Jones sees something else from his marquee receiver.
"Dez is actually, from the standpoint of being to excel, is a better player," Jones told 105.3 The Fan Dallas on Friday. "I know a lot of people are rolling their eyes on that one -- he's really a better player. He's just got to get into a better position. He had a ball yesterday that he can catch. I've seen him miss that ball before, but I've seen him catch that ball, too, great periods of times. Let me say this: I feel good about Dez."
While Bryant has lost a step in the speed department, Jones is right in that Dez can routinely outmuscle corners for catches on jump balls. Catching contested passes is an important trait for Bryant to possess. After all, he's been struggling to find separation all season.
