Steelers defense can get reinforcements for Titans game

The Pittsburgh Steelers could have three defensive players back for this Sunday’s game against the Tennessee Titans.

Last week, Pittsburgh Steelers suffered a devastating, 36-28 loss to the Minnesota Vikings, where they almost overcame a 29-0 deficit. After that game, Pittsburgh’s chances of reaching the knockout stages came to fruition, and they have a challenging schedule through the end of the season. But, they might have some reinforcements along the way.

During his press conference on Tuesday, head coach Mike Tomlin mentioned that there is a chance that some players will be able to return for this Sunday’s game against the Tennessee Titans. Those players include TJ Watt, Alex Highsmith and Joe Haden.

Many Injured Steelers Players Have Chance To Return In Week 15

Watt was active for the Week 14 edition of Thursday Night Football, but was ruled out mid-match after sustaining a groin injury. Queuers recorded a total handling prior to departure. Despite playing only 11 games this season, Watt leads the league with 16 eliminations.

Highsmith also left the game against the Vikings last week due to a knee injury. During the year, the paver has totaled 30 tackles and three pitches across 12 games this year.

Haden has missed Pittsburgh’s past four games after spraining his midfoot in Week 10 against the Detroit Lions. Bringing him to Heinz Field would be a huge boost to their secondary. Haden scored a total of 24 tackles, 5 defensive passes and 1 mandatory fumble in 8 games.

Bringing these three defensive players back on Sunday would be a huge opportunity for the Steelers. They are set to face a Titans offense averaging 347.2 yards (17th) and 24.9 points (15th) per game.
