T.J. Watt, LB (PIT)

Not on track to play Sunday

The Steelers didn't provide an update on Watt (illness) following Friday's practice, signaling that he won't return from the reserve/COVID-19 list ahead of Sunday's game against the Ravens, Mark Kaboly of The Athletic reports.

Given that Watt's placement on the list Monday was the result of the positive test, he would need to show diminished symptoms and test negative for the virus on two occasions at least 24 hours apart in order to play Sunday. Since the Steelers haven't suggested that Watt has submitted even the first of those two negative test results, the team appears to have essentially ruled him out from playing this week. Watt's expected absence is another blow to a reeling Pittsburgh defense that will also be without top cover corner Joe Haden (foot) for a third straight game.
