The Steelers are getting T.J. Watt back on Sunday against the Saints, but that doesn’t mean they’ll be at full strength on defense.

Steelers safety Minkah Fitzpatrick has been ruled out of Sunday’s game because he has appendicitis, the team announced.

Meanwhile, the Steelers officially activated Watt from injured reserve, meaning he’ll play for the first time since suffering a pectoral injury in Week One. Watt, one of the NFL’s best pass rushers, said this week that he expects to be at full strength and good to go against the Saints.

The Steelers also placed cornerback William Jackson III on injured reserve and elevated safety Elijah Riley to the active roster for Sunday’s game.

  1. Sucks about that appendicitis it affected burrow longer than we thought it would. Hopefully he gets better soon and as far as TJ goes he’s a great player but I expect he’ll be hurt again before the end of the Saints game

  2. Not the right time for Watt to return. If the Steelers were in contention, maybe. But, Watts full recovery is more important than this Saints game.

  3. This is exactly the kind of game we need to get ready for a push for the playoffs. Never doubt the black and gold! Go Steelers!!!

  4. This will be an easy home win for the Steelers. I just hope we don’t get too overconfident because we have a LONG road ahead of us to the Super Bowl! Stay focused and GO STEELERS!

  5. Fitzpatrick is terribly overrated.

    So you are saying he reminds you of NKeal Harry…you know the guy you said was the next Jerry Rice….right? LOL

    Just like TJ Watt right? I think you’re 0-250’000 for predictions there but don’t give it up, we all appreciate the comedy you bring to the sites comment section

  7. No Minkah—that’s 4 or 5 Saints players that won’t get speared tomorrow. #dirtyplayer

    The Patriots were supposed to be 8-0 and the Jets were supposed to be 0-8 right now. Instead the Patriots are in last place. Jimmy the Greek was more accurate.

  9. Not like it matters.. anyone seen minkah get burned repeatedly during the eagles game? Over-rated.
