On Saturday, the Pittsburgh Steelers announced they were downgrading starting outside linebacker T.J. Watt to OUT for the team’s division showdown with the Cincinnati Bengals.

Watt had originally been listed as questionable after suffering the injury in last week’s game against the Las Vegas Raiders. Pittsburgh will also be missing fellow starting outside linebacker Alex Highsmith with a groin injury of his own.

With Watt now out of the lineup, undrafted rookie Jamir Jones could get the call as the starting outside backer opposite Melvin Ingram.
