TJ Watt Potential Return This Week

Steelers’ essential linebacker, T.J. Watt is expected to return to practice this week, following his absence with a hip and knee injury. It is not certain if he will be in the game yet, but the team is keeping their fingers crossed that he will be cleared to play before their next game.

With Watt injured, the Steelers could only manage to tie in their game against the Lions, who have yet to win a single game this season. The loss against the Chargers was slightly less surprising, but Steelers fans are convinced missing Watt was the main reason for the results of these games,

Watt, along with other key players, including Minkah Fitzpatrick and Joe Haden, was absent during Pittsburg’s loss to Los Angeles last week. Having at least one of these players back could offer the team some of the much-needed support to prevent another defeat, but it is possible that all three will be returning for the upcoming game. Other players that will not be returning next week are receiver Ray-Ray McCloud and tight end Eric Ebron.

Pittsburg is currently occupying the second-lowest position in the AFC North. If they want a chance at making it to the postseason, they are going to need some of their key players back on the field.

On Sunday, the Steelers will face off with the Bengals. Pittsburg is hoping to avoid repeating their last matchup back in September, where they suffered a 24-10 loss. Cincinnati is one of the teams that Pittsburg will need to knock to the bottom of the division to qualify for the playoff picture, so this is an essential game for both teams.
