T.J. Watt is no stranger to playing through pain this season and this afternoon will be no different. Sources of NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport say that the Steelers linebacker will play versus the Kansas City Chiefs despite two cracked ribs.

Rapoport reported that Watt sustained the injury during the Titans game. Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin didn’t mention an injury to Watt during his weekly press conference on Tuesday, nor has he appeared on any injury report this week.

With previous groin, hip and knee issues, Watt has played through injury all season long. Still, he’s only missed two games, while reaching a career-high of 17.5 sacks in just 12 games.

Watt is the presumptive Defensive Player of the Year for 2021.
