JuJu Smith-Schuster has once again become part of a viral sensation as the Steelers star wide receiver recently took part in the milk crate challenge. A challenge that has seen a few folks suffer major injuries while trying to become TikTok famous. Steelers fans and management were probably not thrilled to see one of their biggest offensive weapons trying the challenge so close to the start of the regular season. Head coach Mike Tomlin was definitely not impressed or happy with the situation.

While Tomlin didn’t actually single out Smith-Schuster in his media interview, fans can get the point at who this message was directed to. Tomlin is focused on football and wants his players focused on football as well. Smith-Schuster enjoys the spotlight of being a viral star, including dancing on the Bengals logo last season that got him a nice target on his back during the game. Good news, Steelers fans, Smith-Schuster at least completed the milk crate challenge.
