Pittsburgh Steelers outside linebacker T.J. Watt was a full participant in practice Thursday and could be in line to play Sunday’s road game against the Green Bay Packers after missing last week’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Watt, 26, sustained a groin injury during the first half of a 26-17 Week 2 home loss to the Las Vegas Raiders. He played just 16 snaps against the Raiders.

The three-time Pro Bowl selection has three sacks, six quarterback hits, seven tackles and two forced fumbles so far this season.

Sunday’s game will mark something of a return home for Watt, who is a native of the Milwaukee area. He was a first-round draft pick by the Steelers (No. 30 overall) in 2017 out of Wisconsin.
