The Pittsburgh Steelers were without star defender T.J. Watt for the majority of their Week 2 loss to the Raiders. He was sidelined early on with a groin injury and didn’t return.
Groin injuries can often be tricky and linger for weeks. That doesn’t seem to be the case for Watt — it appears he could play versus the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday (per NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport).
We should have a more clear update from Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin from his weekly press conference tomorrow.
#Steelers LB TJ Watt, knocked out with a groin injury, has a chance to play this Sunday, I’m told. A good sign that — regardless of if he plays or not — it’s not a major injury.
