Young fans reach out to get signatures from T.J Watt on Friday, July 26, 2019 at Saint Vincent College as players make their way to the field for practice during Steelers training camp.

The Pittsburgh Steelers had a full 91-man roster available to practice after they activated outside linebacker T.J. Watt from the physically unable to perform list Sunday.

The move cleared Watt to practice at the team’s third annual Family Fest practice at Heinz Field.

Watt was on PUP with a hamstring injury. He sustained the injury running the conditioning test on the day the Steelers reported to training camp, July 25, at Saint Vincent.

Watt, who is entering his third NFL season, led the Steelers with 13 sacks in 2018.

Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
