This is not what Pittsburgh Steelers fans want to see.
Steelers linebacker T. J. Watt had to go to the blue medical tent after he was down in pain on the field with a knee injury. The injury came just as Watt as his teammates were taking down Lions quarterback Jared Goff for a sack.
Watt’s leg could be seen bending in the wrong direction after colliding with teammate Joe Schobert.
This video shows him screaming in pain shortly after the sack:
Watt was seen walking around on the sidelines but he has yet to reenter the game. The Steelers are going to need him, not only today, but in the coming weeks as well. This defense clearly isn’t the same without the Defensive Player of the Year frontrunner.
