Diontae Johnson leaves practice with injury deemed “not serious”

The Pittsburgh Steelers are a team who has seen both their share of injuries, as well as good luck when it comes to the injury bug.

Look at 2022 as an example. The injury to T.J. Watt derailed the first half of the season, but the Steelers played the entire season with the same five offensive linemen. Talk about two sides of the coin as it pertains to injuries.

The Steelers started this training camp with no players on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list, but as the team was in the midst of their second training camp practice as Saint Vincent College in Latrobe, PA they saw a key receiver leave practice with an apparent injury.

Diontae Johnson, shortly after the start of practice and the daily “7 Shots” drill, left the field. On the sideline he tried to work out whatever injury he suffered, but was eventually shut down by coaches and medical staff.

According to’s Dale Lolley, the injury didn’t appear serious.

Mike Tomlin always addresses the media following the practice, so there will be a report on Johnson’s status at that time. In the meantime, be sure to stay tuned to the SCN Training Camp Tracker so you know what’s going on at Saint Vincent College as the Steelers prepare for the 2023 regular season!
