Update: Diontae Johnson has returned to the game and just saw a deep target and looked fine.

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Diontae Johnson was forced into the medical tent in the first quarter due to a hamstring injury, per Tracy Wolfson. Johnson just can’t seem to stay healthy, but when he’s out there, he’s been the Steelers No. 1 receiver. If Johnson remains out, Chase Claypool and James Washington would see an uptick in work.
