The Steelers aren’t sure if linebacker T.J. Watt will be able to play against the Bengals on Sunday, but they expect to have quarterback Ben Roethlisberger in the lineup.

Roethlisberger moved up to a full practice session on Friday and he did not get an injury designation on the team’s final injury report of the week. Roethlisberger hurt his  pectoral in last Sunday’s loss to the Raiders and didn’t practice on Wednesday before getting in a limited session on Thursday.

Watt indicated he’d be listed as questionable earlier in the day and the injury report shows that’s the case. Watt hurt his groin last weekend and has been limited in practice all week.

Wide receiver Diontae Johnson (knee), linebacker Alex Highsmith (groin), and defensive lineman Carlos Davis (knee) have all been ruled out.
