Steelers LB Myles Jack did not practice Wednesday because of a knee issue. He saw his usual level of playing time in the Week 8 loss to the Eagles, but missing practice coming out of the Week 9 bye seems ominous. HC Mike Tomlin gave no insight into expectations for Jack this week. We'll see about his status the next 2 days.

Steelers HC Mike Tomlin and EDGE T.J. Watt expressed optimism Tuesday about Watt returning for this Sunday's game against the Saints. Watt has been out since Week 1 with a pectoral injury, and then had knee surgery during his layoff. He has been targeting a Week 10 return. We'll watch to make sure that comes to fruition this week. Barring any stated limitations on Watt's playing time, we'd get him back into IDP lineups right away.

The Steelers announced that EDGE T.J. Watt returned to practice Wednesday but also said that he remains on IR. That aligns with the previously reported target date of Week 10 -- after the bye -- for Watt's return to game action.

Steelers EDGE T.J. Watt did "something close to his usual warmup routine" before Sunday night's loss to the Dolphins, according to Brian Batko of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. He adds that the Steelers "expect" Watt to return for the Week 10 game against the Saints, which would follow Pittsburgh's bye week. Originally out with a pectoral injury, Watt later had his left knee scoped. We'll keep watch for confirmation on that return date. In the meantime, Watt is worth stashing in any but the shallowest of IDP leagues.

Steelers S Minkah Fitzpatrick (knee), CB Cameron Sutton (hamstring), CB Ahkello Witherspoon (hamstring) and CB Levi Wallace (concussion) are out for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers. S Terrell Edmunds has cleared the concussion protocol and is off the final injury report. He missed last week's game. All the missing CBs can obviously only be good news for Bucs QB Tom Brady and his wideouts.

Steelers EDGE T.J. Watt recently arthroscopic surgery on his left knee to address an issue that has lingered since August. ESPN reports that operation is expected to delay Watt's return another week or 2. He was already on IR for a pectoral injury, with a potential Week 8 return. Pittsburgh has a Week 9 bye, which might have motivated the surgery's timing. Week 10 vs. New Orleans looks like the new target date. We'll see about Watt's status as that draws closer.

Steelers S Terrell Edmunds (concussion) and CB Cameron Sutton (groin, hamstring) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Bills. CB Ahkello Witherspoon (hamstring) has been ruled out. S Minkah Fitzpatrick (knee), DL Cameron Heyward (elbow, ankle) and CB Levi Wallace (foot) are off the final injury report.

Steelers S Terrell Edmunds suffered a concussion in Sunday's loss to the Jets. We'll see how quickly he proceeds through the league protocol.

Steelers S Minkah Fitzpatrick came away from Sunday's loss to the Jets with a knee injury. HC Mike Tomlin said afterward that he expected to have more info on the injury Monday.

Steelers DL Cameron Heyward left Sunday's loss to the Jets with elbow and ankle injuries. HC Mike Tomlin said after the game he didn't have much info yet. We'll see what Monday reveals about Heyward's injuries.

Steelers S Minkah Fitzpatrick has cleared the league's concussion protocol and will play Sunday against the Jets. CB Ahkello Witherspoon (hamstring) is out for the game.

Steelers S Minkah Fitzpatrick returned to full practice Wednesday. He landed in the league concussion protocol when symptoms arose after last Thursday's loss to the Browns, but it appears Fitzpatrick is on track to play this Sunday against the Jets.
