Report: No Structural Damage to Hip, Knee for Steelers LB T.J. Watt



MRIs taken on the hip and knee of Steelers outside linebacker T.J. Watt came back negative for structural damage, according to a report by Adam Schefter of ESPN.

Watt is still sore, Schefter reports, but the lack of structural damage would seemingly preclude a multi-week absence for the Steelers’ top defender. Schefter said it’s not clear at this juncture if Watt will miss any further time.

A previous report by NFL Network called Watt “week to week.”
