The prognosis for T.J. Watt seems to be getting better by the hour.

Although Watt is still awaiting more details, it is anticipated that his pectoral injury won't require surgery and won't cause the end of his season.

There is hope that T. J  can return in six weeks.

Watt's timeline suggests that he will most certainly go on injured reserve, but the Steelers have not yet made this roster adjustment.

According to new rules that the NFL and NFL Players Association agreed upon in May, if Watt is placed on injured reserve, he will need to miss four games before being allowed to make a comeback.

The Steelers started off Monday worrying about their top edge rusher and his pectoral injury, but as the day gave way to night, they changed their outlook.

Pittsburgh has cause for hope since Watt is seeking a second evaluation and more information about his injury.

In Sunday's 23-20 overtime victory over the Bengals, Watt was hurt in the final second of regulation.

He was observed grimacing as he was led to the locker room for more testing.
