T.J. Watt leaves game for Steelers with groin injury

The Pittsburgh Steelers may be without first-round rookie T.J. Watt for a while after the linebacker suffered a groin injury Sunday. At first he was listed questionable to return to the Week 2 game against the Minnesota Vikings. He has since been declared out.

Watt didn’t do much to appear in the box score prior to his departure, only assisting on a pair of tackles for the team. A week ago, he made a big impact for the team with two sacks and an interception — something not even his decorated brother J.J. Watt has ever done in a game with the Houston Texans.

Without Watt, the Steelers should probably be just fine against the Mike Mitchell Womens Jersey Vikings. Minnesota turned to Case Keenum as a starter Jerrell Freeman Jersey due to a knee problem for Sam Bradford.

Columbus prosecutor Robert S. Tobias said in October 2016 that he believed Elliott had been physical with his accuser but that his office didn’t have enough evidence to bring charges.

“For the Ezekiel Elliott matter, I personally believe that there were a series of interactions between Mr. Elliott and (his accuser) where violence occurred. However, given the totality of the circumstances, I could not firmly conclude exactly what happened. Saying something happened versus having sufficient evidence to criminally charge someone are two completely different things. Charging decisions are taken very seriously and we use best efforts to conduct thorough and detailed investigations,” Tobias wrote in an email to USA Today.

The league’s policy does not rely on the same burden of proof as the legal system does. The personal conduct policy says that “persons who fail to live up to this standard of conduct are guilty of conduct detrimental and subject to discipline, even where the conduct itself does not result in conviction of a crime.”

The league is fully within its rights to suspend Elliott for conduct detrimental to the league, even though he wasn’t charged.
