The Pittsburgh Steelers have struggled to keep their three-headed monster of wide receivers on the field and healthy this season. Unfortunately, the latest injury update to Chase Claypool marks a second straight week in which Pittsburgh will be missing at least one of its star wideouts.

Claypool has officially been downgraded to out for Pittsburgh's Week 4 matchup against the Green Bay Packers.

Chase Claypool Injury Update

The dynamic second-year wide receiver was a new addition to the injury report on Thursday, when news of his hamstring injury broke. He was limited in practice on Thursday and Friday before his official downgraded status on Saturday.

It looks like Diontae Johnson, the No. 1 wide receiver on the depth chart, will make his return following an absence in Week 2.

Regardless, the Steelers need to make some improvements on offense. Pittsburgh ranks bottom-five in total offense (16.7 points per game) and dead-last in rushing offense, averaging 53.0 yards per game.

Entering this Week 4 clash, the Steelers are 6.5-point road underdogs at the Packers on FanDuel Sportsbook.
