The Steelers already lost T.J. Watt briefly after he was injured on the first play of the game after taking a knee to the face. He returned to the game wearing a tinted visor.
Highsmith has six sacks on the season, and has been a monster when it comes to generating pressure this season. He signed a four-year, $68 million extension in the offseason. The Steelers drafted Highsmith in the fourth round of the 2020 NFL Draft, before eventually replacing edge rusher Bud Dupree to be the other starting pass rusher opposite of T.J. Watt.
