The Pittsburgh Steelers defense was lighting up the Cincinnati Bengals in the season opener. They forced five turnovers and kept the team in the game throughout the match. However, TJ Watt fell to injury, but since then, has received an uplifting update. For that reason, he delivered the perfect response and it has the fanbase going bananas.

TJ Watt’s Injury Not Nearly As Serious As Steelers First Thought

According to Ian Rapoport, “Watt suffered a torn pec muscle, but did not tear the tendon.” This specific injury has more of a six-week timetable rather than the entire season. Additionally, the Steelers star does not require surgery, which bodes well for his return.

The fans weren’t the only ones happy to hear the good news regarding TJ Watt. Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin shares that the coaching staff is “encouraged” by Watt’s injury update, per Jonathan Jones.

However, it was TJ Watt’s response to the news that has Steelers fans hyped. The guy basically plays like a Terminator so it makes sense why he chose this specific GIF. As long as Pittsburgh can remain competitive the next several weeks, Watt’s return could be massive in the back half of the regular season.

Steelers Fans Go Bananas Over TJ Watt’s Perfect Response

Don’t count out Pittsburgh just yet! Between TJ Watt’s injury update and Mike Tomlin’s uncanny ability to never finish below .500, Steelers fans are feeling more than confident about their chances this season.

Maybe another man-made ice bath will increase the healing time. We don’t know. We’re not doctors.

This is extremely optimistic but hey, TJ Watt is an absolute beast. So never say never.

We’ll see how the remainder of the season plays out. TJ Watt’s eventual return is massive for this franchise. If Mike Tomlin can get the offense rolling more efficiently, then the Steelers could be a dark horse out of the AFC North.
