UPDATE: Steelers WR Calvin Austin has returned following an evaluation for injury.
Specifically, she noted that Calvin Austin was evaluated by an independent neurologic consultant, a sign that he’s likely being evaluated for a concussion.

Worth noting he is being looked at by an independent neurologist
Austin is still seeking his first catch of the day against the Baltimore Ravens, failing to catch his lone target.
The second-year wide receiver has seen a significant increase in his usage following a hamstring to starter Diontae Johnson, who’s been on injured reserve since Week 2. He had recently been listed as a starting receiver in the team’s most recent depth chart (not a surprise considering Johnson’s status), while also being named the starting punt returner. In his absence, Gunner Olszewski was back to return punts, likely to the dismay of Pittsburgh fans.
The last time Olszewski was in action, this happened on a kickoff return:
