Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker T.J. Watt did not practice Thursday due to a knee injury ahead of the team’s matchup with the Philadelphia Eagles this weekend.
Watt was a full participant on Wednesday, and was newly added to the injury report today with the knee ailment.
Wide receivers JuJu Smith-Schuster (knee) and Diontae Johnson (toe) were full-go after missing Wednesday’s practice. Both have missed a number of early week practices throughout the season with their respective bumps. Johnson had also been in concussion protocol since the Steelers’ win over the Texans two weeks ago, but has since been cleared.
Fullback Derek Watt (hamstring) and linebacker Marcus Allen (plantar fasciitis) did not participate for the second straight day. It is unlikely either will see action against Philadelphia if they are unable to go on Friday.
Cornerback Joe Haden was a full participant after sitting out of Wednesday’s session with an illness.
Veterans Ben Roethlisberger, Maurkice Pouncey and Stephon Tuitt returned to the practice field following scheduled days off on Wednesday.
