The Steelers got linebacker T.J. Watt back at practice on Wednesday and cornerback Joe Haden joined him on the field Thursday.

Haden missed last Sunday’s loss to the Chargers with a foot injury and got back on the practice field as a limited participant on Thanksgiving. Safety Minkah Fitzpatrick was activated from the COVID-19 reserve list earlier in the day, so it’s been a day of good news for the Steelers secondary,

Right guard Trai Turner also practiced on Thursday. He sat on Wednesday with a knee injury, but got in a full session so he appears to be on track to play against the Bengals this weekend.

Watt remained limited while cornerback Arthur Maulet was added to the report with an illness. Maulet did not practice.

  1. Burrows will appreciate that Pittsburgh is getting their old, slow secondary back out on the field.

  2. Doesn’t matter, despite all the elite players Tomlin will find a way to lose.

  3. I like Tre Norwood but the miscommunication between him and Sutton on the Williams touchdown doesn’t happen if Fitzpatrick was in the game. Plus, I believe that Fitzpatrick is faster than Norwood and would have caught Williams even if the catch was made. That doesn’t mean the Steelers would have won, but it would have given them a better chance. Likewise, getting Hayden, Turner, and Watt back also increases the team’s chances of winning!
