PITTSBURGH — Coming off what he calls “my worst game ever,” Pittsburgh Steelers receiver Donte Moncrief will continue to play through a dislocated finger suffered in training camp.

The Steelers need a legitimate No. 2 receiver opposite JuJu Smith-Schuster, and Moncrief didn’t deliver during Sunday’s 33-3 loss at New England with multiple drops and three catches for 7 yards despite a team-high 10 targets.

“[Ben Roethlisberger‘s] depending on me and I’ve got to make plays for him, hurt finger or not,” Moncrief said. “There’s nothing you can do to a dislocated finger, especially when you’re a receiver. You’ve just got to tough out the pain and go.”

Moncrief looked good at the start of training camp but missed time with the finger injury. He has been practicing in full for the last few weeks.
