Steelers anticipate 4-6 week timetable for TJ Watt

When the Pittsburgh Steelers left Cincinnati, they feared the team had lost T.J. Watt for the season. 48 hours later and some change, the team and Watt have received the best possible outcome as Watt has a left pectoral muscle tear and not a tendon tear as initially feared.

Head Coach Mike Tomlin ruled Watt out for week 2 vs the Patriots but wouldn’t rule Watt out beyond that. However, all parties involved are bracing for a 4-6 week recovery period.

“We’re probably in a lot better place than we were after the game,” head coach Mike Tomlin said at Tuesday’s Press Conference “. I can definitively say that T.J. won’t play this week [against the Patriots], but I won’t make any commitments beyond that. We’re encouraged, and we’ll just continue to look at the situation and gain opinions and do what’s appropriate.”
