TJ Watt Sends Clear Message About Possibility Of Returning From Injury

T.J. Watt, Pittsburgh Steelers

On Sunday, the Pittsburgh Steelers held a collective breath when star pass rusher T.J. Watt exited the team's season opener vs. the Cincinnati Bengals. However, the NFL star wants to make one thing clear: he will be back. 

Initially, it was feared Watt suffered a torn pec that would require surgery. However, there's now some optimism he won't need surgery and may return in about six weeks. Watt's latest tweet may confirm just that. 

The Steelers star posted a gif of the famous "I'll be back" line made famous by Arnold Schwarzenegger in The Terminator.

Potentially great news for Mike Tomlin and the Pittsburgh Steelers. It sounds like T.J. Watt isn't going to be out for the year, although that's unconfirmed at this moment. 

Tomlin sounds optimistic about Watt's outlook as well. 

"Let me say this, we're probably in a lot better place than we were after the game and usually that's the case," Tomlin said, via "That's why I don't always say too much after the game even though there might be speculation out there.

We should learn more about Watt's status moving forward later this week.
