Steelers Star Lineback Official To Return In Week 10

For weeks now, the Steelers and their All-Pro linebacker T.J. Watt have been so close to a return, but after weeks of waiting, it has now been confirmed that Watt, the reigning Defensive Player of the Year will return as the Steelers battle the New Orleans Saints on Sunday.

The former All-Pro told reporters on Friday that he will officially be back for the first time since a Week 1 win when he tore his pectoral muscle, and despite the doubts, he also mentioned that he didn't expect to be on a snap count, which would be fantastic for Pittsburgh's chances of turning their season around. 

Pittsburgh currently sit at 2-6, but coming off a bye week and getting Watt healthy, this team has some winnable games coming up on their schedule, and if they can get back into what has made them successful in the past, this team may shock the world in the second half, but only if Watt can remain healthy and be the player we've seen him be in the past.
