Steelers' JuJu Smith-Schuster misses a step, sustains injury after slipping on penalty flag

The official injury was listed as an ankle/toe injury

Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster suffered an odd injury in Sunday’s win over the Jacksonville Jaguars that could see him miss a game because of Pittsburgh’s short week. 

Smith-Schuster, who turned 24 on Sunday, was walking off the field during the second half of the game when he unknowingly stepped on a penalty flag and appeared to tweak his ankle.

Head coach Mike Tomlin said Smith-Schuster wasn’t seriously injured but it could be an issue with the Steelers playing again on Thursday, ESPN reported. 

The official injury was listed as an ankle/toe injury.
