Even though T.J. Watt, the defending NFL Defensive Player of the Year, cannot be replaced by a single player, the Pittsburgh Steelers still require additions.

Outside linebacker David Anenih has been acquired by the Pittsburgh Steelers from the Tennessee Titans' practise squad.

In response, it is anticipated that the Steelers would put Watt on injured reserve. 

After making six tackles, a sack, and an interception in Pittsburgh's victory over the Cincinnati Bengals to open the season, Watt tore his pectoral muscle.

The 27-year-old tied an NFL record last season with 22.5 sacks.

The New England Patriots will be relieved that Watt isn't playing because their offensive line protection concerns against the Miami Dolphins in Week 1 caused quarterback Mac Jones to hurt his back.

Following Watt's injury, the Steelers rotated outside linebackers Malik Reed and Jamir Jones into the lineup.

They will add a player in Anenih who had a terrific preseason for Tennessee.

Before joining the Titans' practise squad, Anenih has three sacks, four tackles, and two batted passes in three games.
