Pittsburgh Steelers fans are anxious with anticipation to see star T.J. Watt back on the field. Watt has been sidelined since Week 1 while recovering from a pectoral injury and knee surgery, but he's making progress toward a return.

Now Watt has given an update on his status for Sunday's game against the New Orleans Saints.

The four-time Pro Bowler told reporters on Friday he will return in Week 10. Making this news even sweeter, Watt said he won't be on a pitch count, so it's full systems go for the star pass-rusher.

Pittsburgh has sorely missed the reigning Defensive Player of the Year. The Steelers have struggled to get to the quarterback without Watt on the field, ranking sixth-worst in team sacks and third-worst in pressure percentage over their first eight games. Adding Watt, who's coming off of a 22.5-sack season in 2021, will immediately alleviate part of these woes.

Pittsburgh's improving health on defense sets this team up for a strong second half. They'll look to take care of business against the struggling Saints in Week 10. The Steelers head into this clash as 1.5-point underdogs, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL odds.
