The Pittsburgh Steelers currently lead the Minnesota Vikings 14-3 in their 2017 home opener against the Minnesota Vikings but rookie outside linebacker T.J. Watt has gone to the locker room in the second quarter.
He reportedly suffered a left groin injury and is questionable to return to the game.

Watt, who had two sacks in his NFL debut last week against the Cleveland Browns, was replaced in the defense by fellow outside linebacker Anthony Chickillo.
We will pass along any updates that the team releases. The Steelers dressed five outside linebackers for the game against the Vikings.
