Steelers LB T.J. Watt continues to work his way back from injury

T.J. Watt is getting close to coming back from his injury.

[mm-video type=playlist id=01eqbydbzmnr1bhxef player_id=none image=]

Never fear, help is on the way.

Pittsburgh Steelers outside linebacker T.J. Watt suffered a partially torn pectoral in the final moments of the Steelers Week One win over the Cincinnati Bengals. Since being out, the Steelers defense has been a shell of its former self and the team has gone 1-5. But on Wednesday, Watt was seen on the field going through a workout on the practice field.

This is in addition to the workout Watt did on Sunday night in pregame before the Steelers took on the Miami Dolphins. Head coach Mike Tomlin has already said it is highly unlikely we see Watt this week but with the bye week following this week’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles, it really feels like he could return when the Steelers take on the New Orleans Saints in Week 10.

Watt, when healthy, is one of the best all-around defenders in the NFL. If the Steelers have any hope of salvaging the season after the bye week, Pittsburgh needs Watt at full strength.

Steelers vote LB T.J. Watt team MVP third year straight

CONGRATS to T.J. Watt for being named team MVP!

On Thursday, the Pittsburgh Steelers announced the team MVP for the 2021 season is outside linebacker T.J. Watt.

“It’s a special honor and truly special because it’s voted on by the guys in the locker room, the guys that see the work each and every day,” Watt told the Steelers media today. “I’m very thankful to receive the award. Very grateful for it.”

It’s no surprise that a player with a league and career-high 21.5 sacks, four forced fumbles and three recovered, 59 tackles (20 for loss) and 36 quarterback hits would be named most valuable. For sentimental reasons, though, it would’ve been pretty cool if the Steelers had named Ben Roethlisberger MVP. In his entire 18-year career, Roethlisberger has never had the honor.

But, alas, T.J. Watt is most deserving of the distinction by far. He surpassed the franchise-high sack rate of 16 (set by James Harrison) in December and could very well break Michael Strahan’s league record of 22.5 from 2001 this Sunday.

“It’s all about tradition here and to be able to put your footprint in as part of the tradition here is special,” said Watt. “I know it’s an individual goal. I’m not big on individual achievements. But doing this with such a wonderful group of guys is what it’s all about. To be able to be a part of this franchise, hopefully, for a long time, this is very special. But I really do have more work to do.”

Mike Tomlin: Steelers will ‘leave light on’ for T.J. Watt

Steelers HC Mike Tomlin isn’t ready to rule T.J. Watt out vs. Chargers just yet.

After T.J. Watt went down in the third quarter of the Pittsburgh Steelers game on Sunday, silence fell over the stadium. Players kneeled down around their teammate. Moments later, a collective sigh of relief came when Watt walked off the field under his own power, but there was concern about the extent of his injuries.

Prior to Watt’s MRI on Monday, there was talk of injured reserve. When the test results on his knee and hip came back negative, it became a question of how long it would be until Watt would play again.

By the tone of Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin, it could be sooner than later.

“I’ll always leave the light on for T.J. Watt,” Tomlin said during his weekly press conference. “The things that he does routinely are not things that are done routinely by others.”

As usual, Tomlin said Watt’s practice participation will dictate whether he plays this week.

The Steelers travel to Los Angeles to take on the 5-3 Chargers on Sunday night.

Steelers LB T.J. Watt to undergo MRI today

Steelers sack master T.J. Watt exited Sunday’s game with hip and knee injuries.

Steelers sack master T.J. Watt exited Sunday’s game in the third quarter after sustaining injuries to his hip and knee.

Per NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, Watt will undergo an MRI today but is expected to miss some time.

“We’ll see if he has to miss multiple weeks or whether or not the Steelers put him on injured reserve. It doesn’t seem like it’s season-ending,” Rapoport said on Good Morning Football.

T.J. Watt, second in the NFL with 12.5 sacks, is considered week-to-week.

Pittsburgh Steelers LB T.J. Watt fined by the NFL for doing his job

The penalty occurred in the third quarter of the Steelers Sunday Night Football matchup versus Seattle Seahawks. 

Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker T.J. Watt was fined for doing his job.

The NFL slapped Watt on the wrist — in the form of a $10,815 fine — for unnecessary roughness, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reports.

The penalty occurred in the third quarter of the Steelers Sunday Night Football overtime win versus Seattle Seahawks.

Punching the ball out is part of every defender’s game; it’s in their blood. Watt has forced 20 fumbles in his young career.

“I punch every week,” Watt told Steelers media after the game. “If you watch the film, it’s nothing malicious. I didn’t intend to punch him in the face or on the arm at all. I am striking at the football. I just told him it’s something that I do on a regular basis. It’s not something where I’m trying to affect the player in any way. I’m just trying to get the football out.”

Steelers LB T.J. Watt appears to avoid major injury setback

Good news on the T.J. Watt injury front.

The Pittsburgh Steelers were without star defender T.J. Watt for the majority of their Week 2 loss to the Raiders. He was sidelined early on with a groin injury and didn’t return.

Groin injuries can often be tricky and linger for weeks. That doesn’t seem to be the case for Watt — it appears he could play versus the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday (per NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport).

We should have a more clear update from Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin from his weekly press conference tomorrow.

T.J. Watt inks historic new deal that keeps him in Pittsburgh through 2025

It’s officially official, yinz. T.J. Watt is going to be around a while.

It’s official, yinz. T.J. Watt is going to be around a while. On Friday, the Pro Bowl edge-rusher signed his new 5-year contract worth $112.089 million ($28 million per year).

A three-time Player of the Month, Watt’s career-high sack total (15) led the NFL in 2020. Watt’s quarterback hits (41) and tackles for loss (23) were also league-leading career highs.

With that distraction (that Cam Heyward said wasn’t a distraction) finally out of the way, the next order of business is defeating the Buffalo Bills — a feat they haven’t accomplished since 2016.

There’s no question Watt will be particularly hungry to show the Pittsburgh Steelers organization that they made a wise financial decision.

J.J. Watt had a hilarious brotherly response to T.J. Watt’s huge contract

T.J. Watt’s wallet is going to be a little bit lighter after he signs historic contract extension — if big bro J.J. Watt has anything to say about it.

Now that T.J. Watt is set to become the NFL’s highest-paid defender, there are some people he owes money to — at least, according to big brother J.J. Watt.

Moments after ESPN’s Adam Schefter broke the news that Watt and the Pittsburgh Steelers had brokered a deal worth north of $112 million, J.J. posted to Twitter: “Should I send those outstanding IOUs to your accountant or do you want to just Venmo me?”

Watt didn’t practice during training camp or play this preseason while negotiating to extend his career with the Pittsburgh Steelers. Now, with this minor administrative business out of the way, Watt can go back to harassing quarterbacks starting Sunday with Buffalo Bills’ Josh Allen.
