Pittsburgh looked to be in good health following the bye week until the Steelers star edge rusher ended up on the injury report.

Steelers outside linebacker T.J. Watt sat out on Thursday with a reported knee injury and the hope is that it is very minor. Watt has been one of the best defenders in the NFL this season and not having him suit up on Sunday would be a huge loss if this injury proves to be serious.

His brother, Derek Watt, is also dealing with a hamstring injury and it would hurt the Steelers in short-yardage running situations if he was unable to go.
