PITTSBURGH (93.7 The Fan) - A new injury for the Steelers as the team announced on Friday JuJu Smith-Schuster is questionable for Sunday’s game with the Rams with a foot injury. 

JuJu was limited at practice as Tyson Alualu and tailback Trey Edmunds returned to full work and are good for Sunday

Steelers will be without running backs James Conner, Benny Snell and fullback Roosevelt Nix.

Conner is still dealing with an AC join sprain, Snell is still recovering from knee surgery and Nix reinjured his knee last week against the Colts.

That leaves Edmunds along with Jaylen Samuels (who just returned from injury last week) and Tony Brooks-James, who was activated from the practice squad, as the team’s three running backs.

Guard Ramon Foster will miss a second straight game after suffering a concussion against Miami in Week 8.  Foster made it through a limited practice on Wednesday, but was not able to practice Thursday or Friday.

Steelers likely will move starting Matt Feiler to left guard and start Chukwuma Okorafor at right tackle.  Feiler wouldn’t disclose the reason, but likely to put more size in the middle of the line to defend against NFL MVP Aaron Donald.

Okorafor started three games in his rookie season last year and has dressed for all eight Steelers games this season.
