Steelers Injury Updates: T.J. Watt, Johnson Questionable vs. Ravens



Steelers OLB T.J. Watt

T.J. Watt, Diontae Johnson, and Malik Reed are all questionable to play against the Ravens on Sunday with various injuries, the team announced on Friday.

Watt (Ribs) logged a limited practice on Friday after not practicing on Thursday. He said that his ribs felt ‘decent’ following the practice, but that it is a week-to-week thing after suffering the injury on a chip at the end of the Colts game. T.J. Watt anticipates that he will try to play, but will test it on Sunday.

Johnson (Hip) suffered the injury against the Falcons on his final catch of the game. He put in limited practice on Friday after not practicing on Thursday. Johnson anticipates that he will test the hip prior to the team’s matchup against the Ravens and will be a game-time decision.

Reed (Back) was a late addition to the injury report last week, but he practiced in full on Friday. He is still listed as questionable, but that is a sign that Reed will likely be able to play against Baltimore on Sunday. In the event that Watt can not play, that could be a key factor in Sunday’s game.

Meanwhile, Larry Ogunjobi (Toe) and Najee Harris (Oblique) both practiced in full on Friday after being limited early in the week. With no game designations for both, it appears that Ogunjobi and Harris will play against the Ravens. Chuks Okorafor (Shoulder) practiced fully on Friday, and he will play on Sunday as well.

Chris Boswell (Groin) opened his 21-day window on Thursday to potentially play on Sunday. That remains to be seen if the Steelers’ starting kicker will play or if it will be Matthew Wright for another week. However, it is a signal that Boswell is getting closer to returning to the field after being out for the past four weeks.
