Injury Update On Steelers' Star Linebacker

He's been out since Week 1.

Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said he's optimistic that linebacker T.J. Watt will be able to play on Sunday against the New Orleans Saints.
Watt was designated to return from the injured reserve on Oct. 26, but was held out of Week 8's loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. However, the Week 9 bye came at a good time for Watt, as he seems to have improved enough over the last week to have a good chance to play in Week 10.

The return of the reigning Defensive Player of the Year will be a massive boost to the Steelers' defense and team in general.

In just one game this season, Watt has six total tackles, one sack, one interception and two passes defended.
