T.J. Watt, LB (PIT)

Likely back for Week 12

Pittsburgh head coach Mike Tomlin said Tuesday that he expects Watt (hip/knee) to be ready to play Sunday against the Bengals, Missi Matthews of the Steelers' official site reports.

Watt was one of several high-profile Pittsburgh defenders that was sidelined for Week 11, and his absence showed in the Steelers' 41-37 loss to the Chargers. Fortunately for the Steelers, Tomlin is optimistic that all of Watt, Joe Haden (foot) and Minkah Fitzpatrick (reserve/COVID-19 list) will be able to move past their respective health concerns ahead of the Week 12 contest, but the availability for all three may not be confirmed until the team's final practice of the week Friday. Watt has compiled 39 tackles (29 solo), 12.5 sacks, four pass breakups, three forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries through eight games this season.
