T.J. Watt will be back in action with his teammates tonight when the team holds practice at Heinz Field as a part of the annual Family Fest.
Watt was placed on the team’s Active/PUP (Physically Unable to Perform) List to begin training camp with a hamstring injury.
Watt will be taking part in his first practice of training camp. He did participate in the team's OTAs and minicamp during the offseason.
Watt continues to develop into a leader for the defense, something that is happening naturally.
“The biggest thing about being a leader is knowing who you are talking to at all times,” said Watt. “Different guys take leadership differently. Being a guy that works hard, showing through example, then talking when the time is right. Not trying to over coach and be somebody I am not.”
