Coming off a successful road trip to Seattle, the Steelers are now 9-7 and could get into the postseason with a Week 18 win, as well as some help from the Tennessee Titans and/or the Miami Dolphins.

It’s no secret that the Steelers are dealing with several injuries on the defensive side of the ball, and they sustained another one late in the fourth quarter vs. Seattle. T.J. Watt left the game with an undisclosed injury after taking a hard fall while being tackled by Seahawks tackle Stone Forsythe that wasn’t called for holding.

Mike Tomlin addressed Watt’s injury and said he doesn’t see it jeopardizing his status against Baltimore this week.

Tomlin also added that safeties Minkah Fitzpatrick and Trenton Thompson, as well as linebacker Elandon Roberts would be “day-to-day” this week. Fitzpatrick and Roberts both missed Week 17 with their respective injuries.
