The Pittsburgh Steelers got some good news on the injury front leading up to Sunday's Week 14 game. With a couple of star players dealing with injuries this week, the status of T.J. Watt, Diontae Johnson and Malik Reed were all questioned until Saturday.

T.J. Watt Injury Update

All three players held the questionable tag until Saturday's injury report, upon which the team upgraded all three players to have no injury designation, meaning they are expected to play on Sunday.

Watt missed Week 2 through 9 with a torn pectoral muscle but has suited up every week since. The former Defensive Player of the Year only has half a sack since his return but is still a guy offenses have to plan around.

Malik Reed Injury Update

Reed, on the other hand, has played every game this season but has played less and less over the past few games, never topping a 30 percent snap share on defense.

Diontae Johnson Injury Update

Johnson has played well this year, but has still failed to find the end zone. He's averaging 5.1 catches per game and has over 550 yards this season, and remains the Stee=elers No. 1 receiving target, especially after the team dealt Chase Claypool to Chicago.

The Steelers are 1.5-point home favorites over the Baltimore Ravens in Week 14, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's latest NFL odds.
