  Steelers | Pittsburgh's injury report for Week 15    Fri Dec 13, 02:40 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (knee) and TE Vance McDonald (concussion) did not practice Friday, Dec. 13, and have been ruled out for Week 15 against the Buffalo Bills. RB James Conner (shoulder) practiced in full all week and is listed as questionable. RB Jaylen Samuels (groin), OT Alejandro Villanueva (non-injury), OG David DeCastro (non-injury), LB Mark Barron (non-injury), OG Ramon Foster (non-injury), WR Johnny Holton (illness) and C Maurkice Pouncey (non-injury) were full participants at practice Friday and no longer appear on the injury report.

Footballguys view: The Steelers will be thin at tight end this week without McDonald. Conner being questionable takes some shine off of him as a play this week. He might not come back to a full workload if he does go against the Bills.
