NFL wide receiver Diontae Lamarcus Johnson was born on July 5, 1996. He currently plays for the Pittsburgh Steelers (NFL). He participated in football at the University of Toledo before being selected by the Steelers in the 2019 NFL Draft’s third round.
The Pittsburgh Steelers are still missing a wide receiver due to an injury. Diontae Johnson suffered a shoulder injury in the third preseason game and did not return. Head coach Mike Tomlin indicated after the game that Johnson could have returned had it been a regular season game, but the wide receiver didn’t agree.
After the Steelers’ second practice of the week, Johnson revealed that he doesn’t think he could have returned to the game against the Detroit Lions. Tomlin has indicated that Johnson’s participation in the Steelers’ season-opening game against the Cincinnati Bengals is in doubt.

The customary procedure for the squad is to have every player participate in at least one practice before allowing them to play in a game. Johnson says he’s making progress, but it’s still unclear whether he’ll play against the Bengals.
Johnson declared, “I’m doing whatever my arm will allow me to do.” In order to rejoin the group, “I’m doing everything I can.” Be sure to save All Steelers in your bookmarks for breaking stories, in-depth interviews, and movie analyses.
