With the Pittsburgh Steelers struggling to get going against the Denver Broncos after a blocked field goal and a fumble through the endzone, they may now be forced to play the rest of the game without linebacker T.J. Watt.

UPDATE: Watt has returned to the field after a quick evaluation by the medical staff following the Pittsburgh’s successful scoring drive that ended with a field goal to make the score 3-3.

The Steelers’ leader in sacks was forced from the field early in the second quarter after seemingly taking a blow to his right wrist. Last seen jogging to the locker room to be evaluated, the team’s PR staff were surprisingly quick to update his status and he is officially questionable to return to the game.
