The Pittsburgh Steelers officially placed wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster on injured reserve Saturday.

The veteran receiver injured his right shoulder against the Denver Broncos last week, an injury for which he underwent surgery earlier this week. It’s expected that Smith-Schuster will be lost for the rest of the season.

For the season, Smith-Schuster, 24, has 15 receptions for 129 yards and no touchdowns in five games.

A second-round pick in 2017 and a Pro Bowl selection in 2018, Smith-Schuster has 323 career catches for 3,855 yards and 26 touchdowns in 63 games.
