Week 14 Injury Report (Cardinals)

The Steelers will head into Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals without two of their offensive weapons for the third straight week.

Both James Conner and JuJu Smith-Schuster have been ruled out for the game, another week for young players to step up and make an impact.

Conner has been out for two games with a shoulder injury suffered against the Cleveland Browns on Nov. 14 on Thursday Night Football. He has missed five of the last six games with injuries.

Conner said he likes what he has seen from the backs in his absence, and he is hoping it continues.

"I am proud of them," said Conner. "They have all done great. It's been a group effort. It's been cool to see."

One of those players who have been stepping up big time is Benny Snell.

"All of the young guys have been ready when the time has come and it's showing," said Snell. "Hopefully we can keep it up. J.C. (Conner) has done a great job of helping me develop as the player I have started to become. I am thankful for what he is teaching me. That has been helping me on and off the field. It gives me motivation he always has my back. Going forward towards the game I am prepared. I am ready."

As far as the receivers go, young players like James Washington, Diontae Johnson and Tevin Jones have been getting the job done with Smith-Schuster out, and they have become deep threats for Devlin Hodges.

"I think we have had a pretty good comfort level just because I had a lot of reps in practice with those guys, especially the younger guys like James, Diontae and Tevin Jones," said Hodges. "A month ago, me and Tevin, I was throwing him the ball every rep in scout team. There has a comfort level and now it is good to still do it in game."
