Something was obviously bothering him after the loss. And based on how he reacted, it seems like a recurring thing.
Right tackle Chukwuma Okorafor was benched for something “significant” he said during the loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars last month.
George Pickens was never benched but was notably not introduced to the crowd with the other offensive starters at Acrisure Stadium last week. This came after a game against the Titans where he was seen not congratulating Diontae Johnson after a touchdown, being the first one off the field following the win, scrubbing his IG account of Steelers-related content and posting “free me,” after a pair of games where he managed three catches on 10 targets.
The Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver stars have had their troubles this season, and while the offense struggles, they haven’t held back from voicing their frustrations during or after games.
In Week 11 against the Cleveland Browns, in the midst of a four-quarter game where Kenny Pickett threw for just 106 yards, wide receiver Diontae Johnson had to be physically removed from a member of the coaching staff before having a talk with head coach Mike Tomlin on the sideline.
