ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that Steelers wide receiver, JuJu Smith-Schuster, returned to practice after missing 12 games due to a shoulder injury. With Smith-Schuster back at practice, it might suggest that Pittsburgh’s considering adding him to the 53-man roster for Sunday’s Wild Card game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Steelers’ WR JuJu Smith-Schuster returned to practice today after being placed on the Reserve/Injured List on Oct. 16 with a shoulder injury. Steelers have a 21-day window to activate him to the 53-man roster, or he remains on the Reserve/Injured List.

This will be the second time the two teams face off this season, as Kansas City won the first encounter 36-10. If the Steelers can get anything out of Smith-Schuster, it could be a bonus given their offensive woes. Pittsburgh ranks 21st in points per game (20.2), and that number’s down to 17.3 over their past three contests.
The Steelers are as high as a 12.5-point underdog on Sunday, and they’re the only team that’s a double-digit dog this weekend.
