Steelers' T.J. Watt: Four sacks Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Watt had a team-high 11 tackles (eight solo), including four sacks, and blocked a potential game-winning field goal in Sunday's 21-21 tie against the Browns.

Watt showed no signs of having missed time in the preseason, and his monster effort offset a sloppy offensive showing that included six turnovers, and he helped to salvage the tie when he blocked Zane Gonzalez's 43-yard field goal attempt with 1:44 remaining to play.

Steelers' T.J. Watt: Expected to practice this week, could play Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Watt (hamstring) is expected to partake in practice this week and could wind up playing in Pittsburgh's season opener against Cleveland on Sunday, Ray Fittipaldo of The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

The Steelers seem optimistic about Watt's chances of suiting up for the divisional contest but it's still a wait-and-see situation at the moment. Looking to build off a strong rookie campaign headlined by 7.0 sacks, Watt figures to take on a bigger role with the defense in 2018. Whether that bigger role is put on hold remains to be seen, but this week's practice report should provide a strong idea of where he stands leading into Sunday's tilt.

Steelers' T.J. Watt: To be sidelined Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Watt (hamstring) has been ruled out for Thursday's preseason opener against the Eagles, Jacob Klinger of PennLive.com reports.

Watt left Sunday's practice with a hamstring injury, and while the severity is still unknown, the Steelers see no reason to rush the second-year linebacker back into action after just a few days. Expect Pittsburgh to continue to act with extra caution while Watt continues to be evaluated.

Steelers' T.J. Watt: Leaves practice with hamstring injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Watt exited Sunday's practice with a hamstring injury, Ray Fittipaldo of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

The severity of Watt's injury isn't clear at this point. Even if it turns out to be minor, it wouldn't be surprising if the Steelers act cautiously with their budding star.

Steelers' T.J. Watt: Sets franchise rookie sack record
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Watt, who recorded eight tackles (six solo), including a sack in Sunday's win over the Browns, finishes up the 2017 season with 54 tackles (40 solo), including seven sacks, with an interception and a forced fumble in 15 games.

Expectations were high for Watt, who was selected in the first round (30th overall) of the 2017 draft, and he delivered, even outperforming older brother J.J., who missed much of his season due to injury. The eight tackles were a game-high for the rookie, who also set a franchise record for most sacks by a rookie.
