TJ Watt Injury Update

There it is from the source himself TJ Watt, I will be back

After getting a 2nd opinion watt is expected to miss about 6 weeks

The Linebacker does not need surgery on his pectoral so every Steeler fan that was holding their breath can exhale in relieve

The injury happened in the huge divisional win against Cincinnati where Watt had an Interception, a Sack, 2 pass deflections and 3 tackles for loss, against the Cincinnati Bengals

Head Coach Mike Tomlin said that a cast of characters will fill in at the Left Outside Linebacker position

Characters like Malik Reed and Jamir Jones

Tomlin does not expect either of those guys to be the new TJ but does expect the team to step up in the time of need

Tomlin did officially rule out Watt in the home opener this Sunday against the New England Patriots

In 6 weeks the Steelers play at the Miami Dolphins that could be the earliest we see watt take the field again in mid October

Or the Steelers could wait until after the bye which is week 8

Week 9 the Steelers host the New Orleans Saints
