Steelers activate Fitzpatrick from Reserve/COVID-19 List

The Steelers got another key piece of their defense back on Thursday as All-Pro safety Minkah Fitzpatrick was activated off the Reserve/COVID-19 List after missing the team's 41-37 loss to the Chargers last Sunday.

Fitzpatrick is expected to be available for the Steelers (5-4-1) for their game Sunday in Cincinnati against the Bengals (6-4).

"I'm happy about it, I'll tell you that right now," said defensive coordinator Keith Butler. "I'm real happy about it. With the possibility of getting the other guys back, too. That always helps. We were down a couple of people the last time we played them, too.
