Diontae Johnson, WR (PIT)

Sidesteps serious injury

Johnson (knee) did not sustain a serious injury during Sunday's 26-17 loss to the Raiders, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

Johnson picked up a knee injury during the final play of Sunday's loss to the Raiders, but it's at least not a long-term issue. The third-year wideout hasn't yet been ruled out for Week 3's divisional matchup against Cincinnati, which is an encouraging sign. Johnson has drawn double-digit targets in both of Pittsburgh's first two games of the 2021 season, including nine catches for 105 yards on 12 looks versus Las Vegas.
