Steelers OLB T.J. Watt to ‘keep the door open’ for Sunday
Pittsburgh Steelers outside linebacker T.J. Watt ran around enough in Friday’s practice to not rule out playing Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Watt is dealing with a groin injury that pushed him out of last week’s loss to the Las Vegas Raiders.
He was able to participate in portions of the practice Friday but injuries remain a critical storyline for the Steelers.
Watt said he would “keep the door open” to face the Bengals with 48 hours between practice and the Week 3 kickoff.
Cornerback Joe Haden (groin) is also hoping to play, but the Steelers are not expected to have leading receiver Diontae Johnson. Johnson has a team-high 14 receptions this season. He is dealing with a knee injury.
