Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Diontae Johnson has not been heavily featured in the offense of late, and he voiced his frustrations over his lack of targets after the Week 11 loss vs. the Bengals. Following the comments from Johnson, head coach Mike Tomlin addressed the issue, indicating that Johnson was still a crucial component of the Steelers’ offense, via Brooke Pryor.

“Diontae is a known commodity in our group,” said Tomlin. He then proceeded to suggest that defenses have honed in on Johnson in efforts to take him out of the Steelers’ game plan. In order for Johnson to get back to his usual level of involvement, Tomlin believes that other Steelers players will need to step up and force the defense to relieve some of the pressure on Johnson.
