Diontae Johnson Misses Practice with Hamstring Injury, Status for Week 8 Unclear

The dreaded hamstring injury is rearing its ugly head once again for the Steelers’ top wide receiver, and it’s almost as if the fantasy gods don’t want to give Johnson a chance to prove us right when we said all offseason that Johnson is the alpha in the Steelers’ WR room. There’s still enough time between now and Sunday that we could see him fight through the injury, but given that it was a hamstring that held him out originally for the four games he missed from Week 2-5, fantasy managers should be prepared to face life without Diontae for the second time in eight weeks. If this is indeed a setback, we could be staring down a second extended absence, as well.
