Steelers activate Minkah Fitzpatrick from COVID list

1 min read

The depleted Pittsburgh Steelers got some good news on Thanksgiving Day as safety Minkah Fitzpatrick was activated off the COVID/reserve list on Thursday, ESPN reported.

Fitzpatrick tested positive on November 15 and spent the mandated 10 days in quarantine, per league rules.

« He looks like he’s 100 percent out there to me, » defensive coordinator Keith Butler said. « He’ll practice today and see how he feels, stuff like that. »

Getting Fitzpatrick back in the mix would be a nice boost for Pittsburgh after a beat-up lineup fell 41-37 to the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 11. 

In addition to Fitzpatrick, the Steelers also hope to get star pass-rusher T.J. Watt back on the field on Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals. Watt injured his hip and knee in a fourth-quarter sack against the Detroit Lions in Week 10 and only returned to practice on Wednesday in a limited capacity.
