Just when it seemed the Steelers were getting a clean bill of health, a minor setback takes place.
Star edge rusher T.J. Watt missed practice Thursday with an apparent heel injury. The severity of the injury is unknown.

Watt was already dealing with an injury ahead of the bye week. He suffered a hand injury against Baltimore in Week 5, dislocating his finger and suffering ligament damage. His status for Sunday’s Week 7 contest with the Rams is unknown.
