PITTSBURGH, Pennsylvania (WKBN) – The Pittsburgh Steelers have placed wide receiver Diontae Johnson and center Kendrick Green on the Reserve/COVID-19 list.
The move puts their playing status for Sunday’s pivotal game with Baltimore in jeopardy, even with the NFL’s relaxed return-to-play protocols.
Johnson leads the team in receptions (100), receiving yards (1,110), and receiving touchdowns (8) this season.
Green started 14 games this year at center before sustaining a calf injury.
Pittsburgh still has an outside shot at making the playoffs this season. The Steelers need a win on Sunday against Baltimore, a Colts loss, and anything but a tie between the Chargers and Raiders.
