Report: TJ Watt and Diontae Johnson Both Avoid Major Injuries

Sunday was a rough day all around for the Pittsburgh Steelers. On top of taking the loss, by the end of the game, three separate injuries had compiled across the team. Nose tackle Tyson Alualu‘s season came to an end due to an ankle fracture, TJ Watt was forced out of the game with a groin injury, and Diontae Johnson was injured on the last play of the game. Luckily, Watt and Johnson’s injuries both weren’t major per reports:




This is huge news for the team. They went into Sunday down two defensive center pieces in Devin Bush and Joe Haden, both dealing with groin injuries as well, as well as having Stephon Tuitt and Zach Banner on the short term IR. Not ideal to say the least.

Watt and Johnson’s injuries not being long-term is great news for the team, and hopefully they can be back sooner rather than later. The same goes for Bush and Haden, who were both game-time decisions. If the team can get all of these guys back soon, they can start working to put yesterday’s loss behind them, working out the kinks, and get back on a winning track starting with this upcoming Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals.
