Steelers HC Mike Tomlin said Tuesday that he expects to get EDGE T.J. Watt (knee), S Minkah Fitzpatrick (COVID), CB Joe Haden (foot) and DL Isaiahh Loudermilk (groin) back for Sunday's game against the Bengals, NFL Network's Aditi Kinkhabwala reports. That's good news for both the Pittsburgh defense and IDP owners. It's a positive scoring matchup for Watt and the Steelers DBs.
The Steelers on Saturday returned EDGE T.J. Watt to the active roster. He’s officially good to go for Sunday’s game against the Saints. Watt said earlier in the week that he doesn’t expect to be on a snap count
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 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.
