T.J. Watt practices Wednesday, Joe Haden doesn’t

Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said on Tuesday that he anticipates having linebacker T.J. Watt and cornerback Joe Haden on the practice field this week, but only one of them worked on Wednesday.

Watt missed the Week 11 loss to the Chargers with hip and knee injuries, but he was able to participate on a limited basis on Wednesday. Haden’s ankle injury was not feeling well enough for him to return to work, however.

Tomlin also said he expects safety Minkah Fitzpatrick to practice, but he will remain on the COVID-19 reserve list until at least Thursday. Defensive lineman Isaiahh Loudermilk (groin) was limited after joining the others in missing the Chargers game.

Guards Trai Turner (knee) and J.C. Hassenhauer (pectoral) missed practice along with tight end Eric Ebron (knee).

  1. Watt will be playing on one leg, Fitzpatrick will add to his INT-less streak of 14gms, and old war-horse Haden won’t help the DBs guarding the likes of J Chase, Boyd, etc. Burrow should be able to initiate a 28-13 beat down, in Cincy. On a brighter note, Steelers fans will probably be offered some enlightening Tomlin-isms in the post gm presser, though.
