SJ - November 23, 2020

File this one under one of the most bizarre football injuries that you're ever going to see.  Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster rolled his ankle on Sunday when he stepped on a referee's flag.

The Steelers called it a toe injury despite the fact that JuJu appeared to roll his ankle.  The injury, whatever it is, wasn't an issue on Sunday, but it could become one on a short week.

From Outkick:

The Steelers called it a toe issue, and Mike Tomlin said after the win over the Jags that it’s not a significant injury. However, he did say “it could be a factor for him” when getting ready for the short week. The Steelers play the Ravens Thursday night in Pittsburgh.

Refs have only been lending a helping hand to the Steelers this season.  This one didn't get the memo or decided to go rogue.
