Steelers LB Alex Highsmith to Play vs. Bills


PITTSBURGH -- Pittsburgh Steelers outside linebacker Alex Highsmith will play in Week 1 against the Buffalo Bills, team spokesperson Burt Lauten announced Saturday.

Highsmith was originally placed on the team's Injury Report with a questionable tag due to a groin injury. He was a full participant in the Steelers' Friday practice after missing Thursday.

The Steelers will also have T.J. Watt available for Week 1. Watt signed a five-year, $112 million contract on Friday but returned to practice Wednesday for the first time this season.

The Steelers will have a clean bill of health for Week 1, outside of Zach Banner, Anthony McFarland and Stephon Tuitt, who were placed on Injured Reserve. They're eligible to return after Week 3.
