TJ Watt returned to practice fully today.  Missing practice yesterday with a knee issue was a scare to Steeler Nation.  In a zoom meeting today TJ says “He feels great, practiced well, and will be ready to go on Sunday.

Fullback Derek Watt (hamstring) and backup safety and linebacker Marcus Allen (foot), did not practice for the 3rd straight day and have been listed as out for this Sunday’s game.  They are the only players given an injury designation for the game.

Everyone else on the roster practiced fully today.
