Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker T.J. Watt passed his physical and was activated from the physically unable to perform list, ESPN’s Field Yates reported Sunday.

The 2018 Pro Bowl selection had been slowed by tightness in his left hamstring to begin training camp.

Watt, 24, tallied 13 sacks, six forced fumbles, 68 tackles and 12 tackles for loss in 16 starts last season.

The 2017 first-round pick from Wisconsin made the NFL All-Rookie Team that year with seven sacks, one interception and 52 tackles in 15 starts.
