Week 15 Injury Report (Titans) - Updated

*Update: Defensive lineman Isaiah Buggs was downgraded to out on Saturday.

The Steelers wrapped up their preparation for Sunday's game against the Tennessee Titans and there is some good news.

Outside linebackers T.J. Watt (groin) and Alex Highsmith (quadriceps) were both full participants for the second straight day and both are expected to play on Sunday.

"I'm gonna play," said Watt following practice on Friday.

Highsmith said something similar on Thursday when he spoke after practice as well.

"I'm feeling great," said Highsmith. "I'm feeling great for Sunday. It's been a good week of practice so far. So, I'm looking forward to seeing how my efforts have paid off on Sunday. But I feel great."

Rookie linebacker Buddy Johnson (foot) was added to the injury report on Friday, and he didn't practice and has been ruled out for Sunday.

Cornerback Joe Haden was a full participant after missing the last four games with a foot injury. He is questionable for Sunday. Also questionable is tight end Kevin Rader, who was limited on Friday with a hip injury

Defensive lineman Isaiah Buggs, who was a full participant on Wednesday, didn't practice for the second straight day. He was downgraded to out.
