Tribune-Review - [Full Article]

A Steelers wide receiver group that was short on bodies the past few workouts in training camp got a boost Tuesday when JuJu Smith-Schuster, Darrius Heyward-Bey, and Marcus Tucker returned to practice Thursday.

Smith-Schuster had been bothered by soreness in his left knee, Heyward-Bey was slowed by back issues, and Tucker had a foot injury.

Fantasy Impact:

With Antonio Brown also sidelined for the past week, Hunter was the only veteran getting regular practice reps until Tuesday.

Scouting Report

Week 3 at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

With Antonio Brown drawing double- and triple-teams, JuJu Smith-Schuster caught 13 passes for 121 yards and a touchdown last week against Kansas City. Tampa Bay is allowing opposing receivers to catch 73 percent of their targets. Smith-Schuster is among the league leaders in targets. He should be primed for another big week and is a borderline WR1.
